Redbreast 12yo B1/21 Bottling Note

We're big fans of the magnificent Redbreast single pot still whiskeys here at MoM Towers, and furthermore, we do love our cask strength expressions too. So, the regular releases of Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength are always greeted with cheers and high-fives around these parts. Tremendous whiskey, with a distinctively sherried styling to it, bottled up a cask strength (batch B1/21 weighs in at 56.3% ABV) – glorious stuff!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Festive spices, orange peel, mint leaf, and a good whack of old sherry.

Palate: Fruity notes come to the fore in the shape of damson, sultana, pineapple, and more orange. It's supported by layers of vanilla, honeycomb, and a whisper of coffee.

Finish: Stewed berries, coffee again, and diced almonds.

Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength - Batch B1/21 Reviews

One of the best whiskeys on the market

A lovely rich golden syrup colour in the glass, this is a wall climber for sure. The initial roll has this clinging to the sides of the Glencairn for dear life. The nose is to die for, it's like getting a huge cuddle of sensational aromas. The typical Redbreast butter shortbread dominates, along with honey, a lovely orange citrus zest, all spice, marzipan and finally - possibly down to the high ABV, a nose cleansing almost menthol like kick at the end.

On first taste the sherry cask influence comes to the foreground, the spice hugely intensifies along with dark dried fruit and the citrus mixing with the rich thick honey and butter shortbread again. It's mouth filling, decadent and creamy on the tongue. All these flavours can be individually picked out, nothing feels out of balance, it's expertly crafted to be rounded.

The finish is long and a little dry, you move from the fruit, honey and butter to a deep dark chocolate and coffee, the marzipan from the smell has moved to walnut - delightful.

Adding a teaspoon of water brings out the sweetness more on the nose, and calms that menthol note right down. The spice also takes a back seat, with the biscuitty, honeycomb and vanilla flavours coming to the front. In the mouth, the addition of the water brings out even more fruit, with the dried fruit moving aside for hints of pineapple chunk sweets and a touch of banana.

Without doubt, the best Irish Whiskey I have tasted, and one of the best period. Deserves nothing less than full amarks.
