Redbreast 12 Year Old Bottling Note

A delightful single pot still Irish whiskey, Redbreast 12 Year Old is highly praised by a host of notable critics. Distilled at the Midleton site from malted and unmalted barley, it’s then matured in a combination of American oak bourbon barrels and Spanish oak Oloroso sherry butts. We can't get enough of this multi-award-winning whiskey.

Redbreast 12 Year Old Reviews

Too many buts.

Pleasant enough but very similar to Maker's Mark at about £20. The price difference makes it a bit smoother but insufficiently different to stand out for me. Good to have tried it but I am unlikely to buy another bottle.

Well balanced & smooth

I watched the YouTube video and then realised this was going to be my next venture into single pot still Irish whiskey‘s. The description of ‘delightful’ to me is a slight understatement. It has a smooth nutty taste that is spicy but not overly with a definite delicate marzipan aftertaste. If you can, leave it in the glass for a few minutes you will be rewarded by the way this wonderful whiskey evolves. Tasted straight (as always). Give this a try.

Really excellent Irish dram.

You get what you pay for. I wasn't quite sure about this Redbreast 12 at first, don't get me wrong I liked it but it was a bit of a new taste which I grew into very quickly. Very smooth, but certainly not bland. Highly recommend.

I will drink every last drop

I was recommended this by an Irish friend who said if I didn’t enjoy it he would buy the bottle off of me! No way! I will drink every last drop and then buy some more.

The best Irish Whiskey for the price point full stop!

The go to bottle for introducing people to Irish Whiskey and the go to for a simple sipper anytime you want one, amazing quality for the price point, blows many £100 plus bottles out of the water in my eyes. A must have in any Irish Whiskey collection.

Smooth, sumptuous and delicious

I regularly indulge myself into the Irish brands now and again, Jamesons, Teeling and Green Spot. Aswell as the more common variants. But bizarrely enough, i'd never got me a bottle of Redbreast, until now! (Thanks to Master of Malt for the recommendation)
Aforementioned regarding previous comments, smooth, creamy with that delicious vanilla and custard, with a hint of toffee flavour had made this my new go to drink.

Delicious don't buy it there's more for me!

Smooth and creamy nicest whiskey I've bought in along time this is definitely going to be one I buy again.

No over the top flavour

I find the nose kinda flat, I get the sweetness a bit of nuttyness. The palate is oily but besides woody spiciness I find it had to pick out more pronounced flavours. Its too balanced for me. I get some sweetness again, some nuts some sherry and a lot of oak spice. The finish I where this one shines for me, leaving nice toffee, rounded, smooth, vanilla warmth. Glad I tried it, but most likely I will not be restocking my bar with this.

As a novice to the whiskey world ,i find it hard to justify spending over 50 euro on a bottle of whiskey when I'm only finding out what I like ,but the moment I drank redbreast 12yr old, I knew what my more knowledgeable friends were on about.It is a complex , sumptuous drop that I savoir rather than just drink.

A firm favourite

The intro Redbreast. It starts great and the redbreast range gets better and better the older it goes. Smooth and balanced it’s a fantastic everyday whiskey. Also possibly the only whiskey the wife says she doesn’t mind the smell of.
