Redbreast is a rich, spicy single pot still Irish whiskey matured exclusively in first-fill Sherry and bourbon casks, and this fantastic 21 year old is no exception. A masterpiece of cask selection and blending, we absolutely love this older expression with its notes of tropical fruit, menthol and a touch of leather alongside all that mouth-filling goodness you find right across the range. Hats off to Billy Leighton and all those at Midleton!
Nose: Tropical pineapple (!) and crushed peanuts specifically, a bit like the combo you get on the outside of those soft cheese rings. Rich, rounded, spicy – prunes, quinces, a little deeply caramelised apple.
Palate: Mouth-filling and reassuring. A little menthol alongside the expected spiciness and some leather. On the tail there’s a touch of nectarine.
Finish: A little tangy fruit gives way to sweet and savoury barley notes.
Overall: Tremendous! Intricate and still full of life even though there’s a good proportion of whiskey older than 21 years old in there. Thoroughly enjoyable and one of the very best Irish whiskeys we've ever had the pleasure of tasting.

One of the better whiskies I have tried!

One of the best by far

Quite possibly the best I've had. For the price... No doubt. I will never pass on a bottle.

A nose full (I started salivating over the nose) and a mouth full!So complex, and the first sip was overwhelming - a spicy resolution ending in...cinnamon? That's what I tasted.

Probably the finest Whisk(e)y in the world!

Nose: White pepper, orange peel, hints of floral, intense, but not harshPalate: A robust and smooth experience that takes a second to build. The front is delicate with floral notes, followed by a building sweetness dominated by apricot. Earth tones of tobacco and flint play a supporting role. The middle builds to a nice peak that fills the mouth and throat and starts to transition to a white peach finish.Finish: The finish is wonderful and long. Sweet peach fades slowly, but peach and apricot are the last flavors for me. There is a slight medicinal tone in the finish, but it is a nice counterpoint to the sweet fruit.Overall: It is bright and complex. I like experiencing the fruit notes that feel shifted from the normal port and sherry wood finishes. This is a different profile, but on par with any scotch whisky that I have had. I also like that it was bottled at 46%.

Very strong orange pie apple honey flavour. Not overly sweet. Very smooth. Short finish.
