Must have REDBREAST 12 YEAR OLD Single Pot Still

REDBREAST 12 YEAR OLD Single Pot Still 40%

Autres Whisky, Ireland / County Cork, 70cl, Ref: 327

A must have LMDW

Tasted for the first time in 1996 at a memorable St Patrick’s Day celebration, Redbreast remained La Maison du Whisky’s best-seller for nearly 15 years. Supplanted by Nikka from the Barrel, it nevertheless remains one of our favourite whiskies, and is certainly the best Irish whiskey across the board. It is has been dubbed the “Irish nectar”, no doubt due to its very precise notes of blackcurrants and peaches. La Maison du Whisky has watched over the fortunes of this Irish Pure Pot Still whiskey on the French market since 1996.

‘Generosity’ Among the most highly-acclaimed Irish whiskeys and the most widely sold Single Pot Still Whiskey in the world, Redbreast is often considered to be the supreme expression of this style of whiskey. Produced from equal parts of malted and unmalted barley and matured in oloroso sherry casks, this whiskey develops its characteristic Christmas cake flavours.

With the creation of a dedicated appellation, Redbreast has become a “Single Pot Still” (all the current pure pot stills come from a single distillery; it was therefore decided to highlight this fact, in the same way as the Scottish distilleries do with their single malts and single grains). Style: Full-bodied and very expressive. Nose: Red fruit and sweet spices (pink peppercorns). Palate: Rich. Blackcurrants, ripe fruit. Praline. Finish: Long. Candied fruit and ripe pear.

Tasting note

  • Appearance : burnished gold with light amber glints.
  • Nose : full-bodied and very expressive, it is characterised by red fruit (blackcurrant buds) and ripe fruit (peaches). It evolves delicately with charred wood and sweet spices (pink peppercorns).
  • Palate : with a rich, generous attack, it is dominated by red fruit (blackcurrants). It gradually reveals exotic fruit (coconut) and ripe fruit (apricots and peaches). It also offers toffee and praline flavours.
  • Overall : long and firm, it evolves with spices (sweet pepper) and candied fruit (peaches). It persists with notes of very ripe pear.
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.
