What the experts say about Redbreast....

dave broom

If the ship was going down within sight of a desert island, my flailing left hand would make a grab for a bottle of Redbreast.

Dave Broom, August 2011, Edinburgh

Redbreast 12 year old Very elegant, complex and harmonious. With a honeyed, silky texture, it reveals notes of toffee, toasted marshmallows, maple syrup and banana bread, with a hint of roasted coconut. Sparkling fruits and golden raisins blend with the layers of sweetness. Impeccable balance and very approachable.

John Hansell, Malt Advocate, Fall 2010. Rating 96
