Redbreast 15 Bottling Note

A beautiful pure pot still whiskey (or "single pot still" as it's now officially known). Redbreast 15 is a rich, thick, sweet, pungent whiskey with loads of flavour and complexity - really good stuff!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fruity and tangy. Notes of zesty citrus, cut hay, guava, beeswax, manuka honey and tropical fruits.

Palate: Creamy and smooth, notes of cooked fruits, fried banana, orange groves, nutmeg, butterscotch and caramel lattes.

Finish: Custard, peppermint and grapefruit.

User Reviews of the Redbreast 15 Year Old

15, not 12

First let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of the 12 yo RB. A great buy and usually my choice of drink at a bar, but I keep the 15 yo at home. That being said I personally feel that the 15 yo and 12 yo shouldn't be so closely compared, as I see so many reviewers do on this site and others. The 15 is more expensive, but offers more complexity and aromas that (if allowed to open up properly) are a step or two above the 12 yo. Remember, I really love the 12 yo, too. It's just in a different subset of really good whiskey, to me. It's like the difference between riding in a Corvette Z06 and a Ferrari. They're both world class sports cars, one's perceived as a better "deal" than the other, and you can really have fun in both. Which you choose to buy is pure preference. I prefer Ferraris.

What a wild ride

Had this with a single ice cube at the Dirty Onion in Belfast as a session tootled away. Each sip was a roller coaster. Hot, honey, fruit, butterscotch, citrus, leather, peat, vanilla...and heat again, but the heat of an embrace, not a burn. This is lovely stuff.

Can't beat it with a stick! I don't know, why you'd want to but anyway...

Its my favorite Irish out there; and I cannot understand why anyone would want to drink anything else. It's great beginning to end, you can count on that.

Very good, quite sweet

Butterscotch (or is it butterirish?) for sure. I love the simplicity and the mouthfeel of this. Medium-heavy viscosity but light on alcohol punch and oak. Just a little sweet for my taste. I prefer the sourness of say the Glen Grant 16, which has an otherwise-identical mouthfeel and finish and is a bit cheaper.

Not as good as redbreast cask strength

Nice but in the same price range as redbreast 12 year cask strength which is much much better

Mucho Honey

Too sweet for me, a lot of honey going on. I much prefer the 12 yr RB.

Drank it in Limerick!

This is the absolute best whiskey that I have ever sipped. I
I tried this on my 75th birthday while on a visit to
Ireland. Had this at Flannagans and the owner, Michael,
recommended it. One good thing about drinking it over there
is that it was cheap. Only 7 euros a shot, or $10 US.
This is much smoother than Scotch or aged Straight Tequila,
or even some of the best bourbons. I don't think I can go
back once I have tried the best whiskey in the world.

Redbreat Pot Still

None better. period.

Just beautiful

I'm normally an Islay / big-peat fan. But if I have to name a favorite non-peated, this may be it. Compared to e.g. Aberlour and Glenlivet 18's, which are also among my favorites, there's less (almost none) of what I call the "cardboard" taste. It's just rich, smooth, honey-y, and terrific. Originally I was going to say that it's a bit lighter than typical Scotch whiskies, but sipping one now I'm not so sure I'd say even that. The thick honey is really coming through. Aberlour and Tomatin feel a *tad* bit more pork-fattier, but this one is just really really nice.

My favorite whiskey

If you've had Redbreast 12 don't be fooled. Redbreast 15 is not even in the same game. Redbreast 15 is my favorite whiskey I've ever had. And I've had a few $750 bottles.
Taste is so smooth and the finish leaves no residual negative tastes. I know this is now in limited supply so if you see it, buy it.

smooth

smooth, vanilla, port, honey up front. oak and fruit finish.

19th March 2014

wonderful

smooth, rich and perfectly balanced. I never thought Irish whiskey could be so good, but what with Bushmills 16 yo and 1608 I have been proven profoundly wrong.

19th December 2013

A very pleasent experience indeed

would give this full marks as it's complexity in flavour is complemented fully in it's smoothness on the palette. Rich and warm with such sweet undertones left me looking forward to every sip.
