A 27-year-old single malt Irish whiskey from Red Breast, matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, as well as a ruby port cask. Aromas of exotic fruits, red berries, fresh herbs and vanilla fill the nose, alongside toffee and toasted oak. The palate offers notes of ripe plums, summer berries, chilli oil, vanilla and cinnamon.Tasting Notes (1)
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Red, purple and orange jelly babies, sweet and fruity with a touch of the tropical. The fruit sharpens slightly as underripe mango and papaya develop, joined by a spoon of scooped out passion fruit innard. A hint of spicy grain rolls through the middle followed by rich, dark fruit cake.
Thick, rich, oily and intense. A compressed ball of tropical-fruit jelly surrounded by flashed apple, pear, gummi bear and jelly baby. Gentle spice builds, followed by a hint of mint and menthol. Vanilla toffees hide out at the back with a handful of tarragon.
Tropical fruit and toffee fade to leave a tingle of menthol.
The port hasn’t been laid on thick, and the bourbon casks in the mix give the whiskey the fruity, old-Irish-whiskey character that I’m looking for in something that’s been aged this long. The port and sherry casks add another dimension without swamping the spirit. For me, this is what blending is all about – layering and combining flavours to give a balanced whiskey that isn’t dominated by one component.
More from Redbreast
An utterly thick, luscious, intense, rich, warm whiskey. Backed by the fruitiness, oak spice and the oloroso sherry cask influence, the layered ‘berry’ flavours from the ruby port wine casks makes it more complex & enjoyable. A superb dram
