A well-balanced single pot still Irish whiskey, Redbreast 12 Year Old has been matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, creating a sweet-and-spicy character. The nose holds aromas of sweet fruit, toasted oak and warm spices, and the palate offers notes of buttery hot-cross-buns, dried fruits, baking spices and spicy oak.
Tasting Notes by Michael Jackson
Clean, fresh. Hint of linseed. Nuts. Cake.
By far the biggest of this selection. Assertive and complex, with lots of development and seemingly infinite dimension. Ginger cake, brazil nuts, treacle.
Liquorice-like sherry notes.
Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. Makes me want to get on a plane to Dublin immediately.
