Tasting note

  • Appearance : Or à reflets rougeoyants.
  • Nose : D’une très grande fraicheur, juvénile. C’est sur les fruits exotiques et de l’été (ananas, pêche, bananes) qu’il entonne son premier couplet. Le refrain prend des airs andalous, sur la figue, les dattes, les raisins secs et le citron. Son deuxième couplet se veut plus sobre et enjôleur avec de douces notes de chêne américain, de vanille bourbon et de cannelle.
  • Palate : A l’instar du nez, elle se veut gourmande sur une douceur vanillée, des notes de chêne toasté et l’orge maltée. Viennent ensuite des réminiscences huiles essentielles, d’épices, de citron et de fruits secs.
  • Overall : C’est à capella que ce rouge-gorge finit son récital. Particulièrement longue, riche et complexe, une explosion d’épices, de fruits et, « sherry sur le gâteau », de caramel au beurre pour finir decrescendo sur l’orge maltée.
The brand

The brand

Redbreast is one of the top Single Pot Still Irish Whiskeys. Each of its bottles is the expression of a perfect mastery of a centuries-old procedure. Produced exclusively at the Midleton distillery, this Irish whiskey respects the three fundamental principles of production: a must created from malted and unmalted barley; triple distillation in copper pot stills; and maturation in first-fill ex-sherry casks and ex-bourbon casks. In 2013, its newest whisky was released, the Redbreast 21 Year Old, embodying the Redbreast style more than ever before and adding the finishing touches to a range that already includes a 12 year old, a cask strength 12 year old and a 15 year old.

The line

The single pot still range was created by Irish Distillers to highlight a style of whiskey that is characteristic of Ireland. The pure pot still recalls the ancestral traditions that are the foundation of Irish whiskey’s reputation: it is made from malted and non-malted barley and is always distilled three times. Since Irish Distillers’ pot still whiskies – Redbreast, Green Spot, Yellow Spot and some releases of Midleton and Powers – are all produced in the same distillery, they could be called ‘single malts’ like the whiskies that come from a single distillery in Scotland.
