Redbreast 15 Year Old Reviews

A very, very good and well made Irish whiskey

How good this is?

20th October 2020

The Bee’s knees

An Incredible flavour profile. Happy, refined, smooth and potent. Yea yea baby.. I’d move to Ireland.

Truly amazing

This is an absolutely exquisite, insanely smooth dram, cannot recommend enough. Don’t bother with Yamasaki 12, just get this!

1st October 2020

this is certainly a top class drink.

Taken me a while to review this as its a bit of a odd one. Its overall a bit moreish of the 12 yr old in everything I guess. Certainly more sophisticated and can take a splash of o2, although leaving to sit for 10 mins has a similar effect on it.
I think I prefer the 12 overall which saves me money but this is certainly a top class drink.

Right up there, cant believe it's not better known.

I was gifted a bottle of 15 and what a gift. For scotch single malt fans like myself, you've got to try this. As a previous reviewer said its does not last long enough. So glad I discovered it by chance, suggest you take a chance too.

Irish beauty

This whiskey ticks all the boxes. Wonderful nose, lovely layers of flavour and great finish. Probably my top whiskey for the money, a good leap from younger whiskies. It has a rich tongue-coating feel and good depth - an absolute classic.

Classic pot-stilled whiskey at its absolute finest

My favourite £50-£100 whiskey, unfortunately each bottle I buy doesn't seem to last long. Classic pot-stilled whiskey at its absolute finest.

17th October 2019

Punches above it's weight!

This is one of the best whiskies out there. A big step up from 12yo Redbreast and not that far off the 21yo at less than half the price, this is a top dram and at a reasonable price considering its quality.

5th October 2019

A world-class whiskey

The tasting notes above and other reviews here eloquently describe the character, richness, and smooth sweet nature of this single pot still whiskey very well... expensive, but certainly worth it once in a while. Distinctly different from the 12y, I'd suggest trying both.

Powerful Good!

Redbreast 15 is a curious but pleasing blend of smooth buttery sweetness. Tasting it for the first time from a bottle given to me as a Christmas gift, I found it quite stimulating allowing little temptation to indulge in tippling more than one shot over ice. Oh, so nice, smooth and gratuitous. I will have to hide this one in the deepest rendering of my liquor cabinet. This Irish is the best I have tasted. I think you will agree given the opportunity to indulge.

This was beautiful until I noticed the tobacco. I've very happily gone through multiple bottles of this over the years. Smooth and buttery, hint of sweetness.

But just noticed the tobacco. Now I can't shake it. So faint but gross. This was one of my favorites, but now not sure I can recommend it anymore.

This is one of the great whiskeys of the world, and a shining example of the rich and complex flavors the single pot still style can deliver. The description is spot-on -- "rich, thick, sweet, pungent whiskey with loads of flavour and complexity - really good stuff!". This is expensive, but very much on my list of favorites. This is worth traveling to find. Bottles once opened tend to disappear into blissful enjoyment quite quickly.

Top drawer!

Bloody marvelous. Serve to any Irish-whiskey skeptics, or Scotch bigots :-)

Perhaps the best Irish whiskey

Haven't had it in quite some time so I can't give a proper review but it is certainly my favorite Irish whiskey. I find it's even better than the Redbreast 21, and, as a single malt fanatic I've found that most whiskies tend to "peak" at 15 years and after, begin to take on more oak than anything else. This one is viscous and pungent. One of my favorite drams and I intend to open a bottle on St. Patrick's day.

1st March 2017


This bottle is not going to last a very long time...

23rd February 2017

Fantastico !

The most intriguing and enchanting...after taste. Magical ! Sure, the ' little people ' must be involved. Beyond the Beyond ! Tastier than Middleton,so.

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.

1st March 2016

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.

6th October 2015

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.

25th August 2015

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

21st February 2015

Mucho Honey

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

15th January 2015

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.

21st December 2014

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.

20th December 2014

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.

6th November 2014


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

19th March 2014


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.
