Whiskey or Whisky

What's in a name? Redbreast 12 Year Old whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in Ireland. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Redbreast 12 Year Old whisky, rather than whiskey.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is nutty and rich. There are notes of dried peels and spice, an oily note and cut fruits. The palate is spice and of good body. There are notes of nuts and citrus and the peel and juice thereof. There are hints of marzipan and dried peels and a hint of sherry. The finish is long and creamy with custard and spice.

User Reviews of the Redbreast 12 Year Old

The Best

Introduced to this whiskey at RiRa in Las Vegas a couple of years ago. It's all I drink now.

13th July 2014

One of the Best

The Best Irish for your buck without a doubt, definitely a lot better than Jamesons.

24th March 2014

Nice but not that interesting.

Maybe I got a substandard bottle but I was a bit disappointed. It's pleasantly spicy and has an oiliness not unlike Powers (which I like), but compared to bog standard Jameson it's not much more exciting.

An old friend

I tried this about twelve years ago In a village pub south of Dublin. My friend and I were so impressed that we nearly finished the bottle. An extremely smooth and full of flavour whiskey - something that the Scots distilleries should be jealous of. I returned to Dublin again today and met this old friend and brought it home for Christmas, though whether the bottle lasts that long is another thing! Thank you Jameson's.

I love it

My Favorite

I got my first bottle back about 5 years ago for my 40th birthday. A buddy spoke highly of the whiskey. After my first sip I knew I was onto something grand. Needless to say as the night went on and my friends tried it, we made short work of the bottle. Absolutely one of the best whiskeys around. In Seattle I buy it for $54.00

Yummy

I failed to find a Bottle of Black Bush... the cellar man said try this.... Black Bush had a runner for my finest whiskey after this.... A few years have passed and I have discovered many better others.... but as far as Irish whiskey goes this ties 2nd place with Black Bush...... If you haven't tried the best Irish whiskey (Green Spot) and you like this... then you need to have a word with yourself.

1st November 2013

My search is over......

I can stop looking for the perfect whiskey, I found it in RedBreast. Like the previous reviewers, I give this whiskey an outstanding review. I was surprisingly impressed. Very smooth, and flavorful.

29th September 2013

Fantastic

Rich and full bodies, with deep lingering flavors of caramel, heather, and persimmon.

26th August 2013

Supurb!

Friends gave me a bottle for my birthday this year and this is far and away the smoothest whiskey I've ever tasted. My son tried it and thought it was very special also, and we both plan to continue having this on hand (and tongue).

21st August 2013

Pure Heaven

Truly what I would imagine an angel's tears would taste like...

9th August 2013

Very good

This is a very good drop, good flavour profile smooth and an enjoyable drop. Recommended.

Winner

I've just had a tasting night with over a dozen whiskies at this price point and this was the clear winner!

13th May 2013

mind blowingly good

Drink it and thank profoundly the great whiskey distiller in the sky this stuff touched your lips

23rd November 2012

well...

I know this is a well liked whiskey, but I can't say I'm so favorably impressed with either the aroma or the flavor. It's not bad, but neither do I find it interesting. On the other hand, I've only had this 3 cl sample, and I find that's often not enough to get the tastebuds to settle in on the flavors. I'll give it the same rating as a basic Speyside single malt--different but no more enjoyable. Karl

Clings to the glass.

This means that there will be some variation due to the wood that would get averaged out when more casks are used. This first bottles became available in Ireland, France and Germany, and then in the US only in February 2012. I’m writing this on 03-02-2012. Wow! This hits with a kick wrapped in a pillow. It starts mellow..than warms. You know you’ve tasted a good whiskey! You must sip this one. NO GULPING allowed! This is an excellent whiskey! Very nice indeed. M rating: 5Ms MMMMM’s Cost: __$65 __

RedBEST

Haha. This stuff is beautiful, I've never been so pleased with a new find. It's incredibly smooth, although I'd say Sainsbury's Dun Leire is smoother but this is bigger and more complex. Just as an extra note see if you can taste the sour apples - top notch!

31st January 2012

Heaven In A Glass.

I don't drink anything else since I discovered Redbreast.......Perfection.

4th December 2011

outstanding

I had it for the first time at a friends home. I will be having it again! Well done does not say enough. It is so smooth.

10th July 2011

top notch

this is one of the best i have tasted and at this price point i have to give it a perfect score, bought this on a whim and now it is a mainstay, like the previous reviews have stated this stands up and even out shines whiskey that is much older, just can't say enough good things about this one,a job well done by the distillers, congrats!

12th March 2011

God Bless RedBreast

Absolutely Beautiful!! smooth as a young woman's skin and as soft as her touch, better than the top 21 year old named brands

8th March 2011

Outstanding

This whisky outshines most "excellent" single malts on the market. You need to try it to believe it. From the the nose to the lingering finish, there is an explosion of flavours. Simply unique.

11th June 2010

Review

Superb whisky - one of the (if not "THEE") smoothest tasting whisky I have every had the pleasure of enjoying. For a 12 yr old, Redbreast holds it's own with any 18 yr Glenmorangie - well done.
