Redbreast Lustau Edition Bottling Note

A new expression in the Redbreast range, introduced in the latter half of 2016. This single pot still Irish whiskey was initially matured in a combination of American and European oak casks for 9 to 12 years, before being transferred over to first fill Oloroso Sherry casks from Bodegas Lustau for a year.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Toasted almond, Curaçao orange peel studded with clove and slowly growing notes of juicy sultanas.

Palate: Milk chocolate and honey (almost a bit Crunchie-like), cinnamon, walnut and poached plum.

Finish: Apple turnovers and crushed cinnamon.

Redbreast Lustau Edition Reviews

Exciting flavour

This has a rich, sherried flavour, more interesting than the Redbreast 12. It benefits from sitting in the glass for a few minutes, otherwise it tastes too young. Nice and creamy! Very enjoyable.

my 'lady of the night'

A little stronger and a little younger and more brash perhaps, but still a fine version of the 12 yr old.
Sophisticated opening leads to a drier, less sweet finish, with a bit more fire in the belly... my 'lady of the night'

Irish no doubt

It wears it's Irish whiskeyness on it's sleeve, in a blind test you would have no doubt of the country of origin, and is the type of bottle uncle Patrick gets out at christmas, but why wait till then!! enjoy it's refined taste now !!

Great whiskey

Great whiskey. At first I tasted it by adding a little water. Tasted good but nothing special. Then the second time I enjoyed it neat. As like as chalk and cheese! 46% ABV and it's smooth, sweet and full of great flavors. This Robin is really high on my list.

Outstanding- buy it

Pretty close to classic Redbreast but a hint sweeter. Excellent bouquet, mouth feel superb, taste outstanding, smooth finish. Vanilla, cherry, wine notes. Fantastic Irish Whiskey.

A bit to young

At its price point I would have expected a far more refined whiskey. It is youthful and would have been well served with a few more years in the cask. We will enjoy the bottle but doubt buy another.

I Just opened the bottle last night and had a first glass. Very impressive. The attack is very sweet with sugar candy and fruity note. The sherry influence is quiet massive but still well balanced, and provide a very long aftertaste, with some spiceness and the sherry wood, almost no bitterness. Lovely stuff !
In couple weeks, the flavores will have developped in the bottle and I am confident it will just be awsome !

Decadent and rich

Quite lovely. The sherry finish does make it feel a tad heavy on the end, but I'm guessing that was the intention. I do miss that classic redbreast apple and pear, but it is really good.

Wonderful on verge of being great.

This and the 21 are my favorite Redbreast expressions. I love malt whiskey aged in sherry casks, so I’m an easy mark and love this one. That said I would like to see a Redbreast Lustau 18 or some such. This one has got some harshness that I believe would mellow into multi dimensional flavors if it had more than just the one year in Lustau casks. Are you listening Redbreast/Middleton? IMHO, that would have the potential to be one of the greatest whiskeys ever. Sorting hat says four stars for now!

A lovely whiskey for slowly sipping while contemplating the meaning of life.
With each sip it looks better and better.

A tasty whiskey confection

A gem! Milk chocolate, marshmallow and caramel start through finish. Great mouthfeel, warming and perfect to start or finish an evening. The Redbreast gang sure know how to make some tasty whiskies!

What a lovely change

Utterly blown away with this delightful little fella from the Emerald Isle. Quite happy and settled in at 46% with no added water (normally I'd add a spec). Full marks and looking forward to another jourbey via this Irish diversion. Fantastic nose the moment the cork come out. Smooth fruity vanilla sherry and biscuit. Warming after taste. Won't last long...too Good!

Truly worth waiting for!

Drinking my first RB Lustau. Excellent addition to the RB family. Congratulation to all at Midleton, Truly worth waiting for. Tasting notes are spot on.

Sweet, smooth and moreish!

Very moreish and a great addition to the Redbreast range. Initially matured in bourbon and sherry casks for 9 to 12 years, it then receives a further year in Lustau Oloroso sherry casks. These impart a wonderful flavour to what is already a richly flavoured whiskey. It's in a totally different class to the peaty Islay classics, but if you like smooth, mellow and drink all-night whiskies, you'll find it hard to do better than this, for the price!

As a regular redbreast user I have just had bottle of Lustau bought as a present,it is nice smooth drink I need to have a Redbreast now to compare it to.

No chill filtered youngish dram. I'm guessing 8-10 years.
Bright orange and cinnamon nose with a butter, cream and nougat palate. Finish is a little bitter and nutty but that gives this whiskey a little complexity.
Nice melting smoothness to it. Lighter body than a sherried scotch but just as much flavor.
