Redbreast 21 Year Old Bottling Note

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!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Redbreast 21 Year Old Reviews

A very special treat

I have not tasted better

Best of the best!

This whisky is amazing! It has a special taste that you can’t find in any other whisky and it is so smooth and tasty. It is quite expensive, but in my opinion it is worth every penny!

Too good for Irish coffee but oinly just

Fortunately I only received this as a gift
V. disappointing. sharp for a 21 yo, any character destroyed by triple distillation. Save your money and get something like The Arran 10 - a quarter the price with twice the taste.

Top stuff

Very smooth and full of flavor. Notes of sherry, dried fruit, tropical fruit, spices, caramel, vanilla, alongside a nutty and slightly smoky finish like a single malt.

I am not a great scribe

Amazing whisky. Fantastic!!!

I have been trying the 15yo & 12CS most of the time. Picked up an LMDW 25yo and never opened it having decided to open it for a special occasion. However, recently I picked a bottle of 21yo to drink. It's a wonderful wonderful whisky.
Nose: Mango/Pineapple tropical fruits. Hint of sherry. Fruity.
Palate: Full. Creamy. Sherry influence. Fruity. Spicy. Complex and layered. Vintage feel of the 21 yr is very ominious. Silky. Velvetty.
Finish: Fruity & spicy but definitely the barley/sugar spots in the end. Long. Mouth watering.
A stunning whisky !!!! Remarkable. Great whiskky

Phenomenal.

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

Redbreast 21 - WOW!

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.

Redbreast 21

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

7th March 2016

Deep and complex

Nose: White pepper, orange peel, hints of floral, intense, but not harsh

Palate: 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%.

superb

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