- Appearance : With the creation of a dedicated appellation, Redbreast has become a “Single Pot Still” whiskey (all the current pure pot stills come from a single distillery, in the same way that Scottish distilleries label their single malt expressions). It is composed
- Nose : mixed berry compote with sweet, warming spices and pink peppercorns.
- Palate : blackcurrants, ripe fruit and praline.
- 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.

Laphroaig 10 year old is undoubtedly one of the all time great malt whiskies from Scotland. Its idiosyncratic peaty character stands out...€45.90
