Expert Reviews85 points, Serge Valentin on Whiskyfun, 2 November 2012
- Appearance : gold with glints of old gold.
- Nose : elegant, heady. The first flavours we encounter are of cereal, lime, chamomile and curry. A light hint of tar fades into the famous red fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) for which this Irish Whiskey is best known. It lingers with vanilla, spice (cinnamon, cloves) and candied fruits (apricot).
- Palate : sparkling, cheerful. Like biting into fleshy fruit, blackcurrant berries and passion fruit. The second mouthful reveals vegetal notes of green wood and ylang-ylang. Marzipan and gingerbread provide consistency. The vanilla transforms into cardamom, wild shrawberry and gooseberry.
- Overall : long, slightly tannic. It expresses an impressive range of fruit. For some, the silky sensation of the fruit skin is pure pleasure. For others, it is their sugary juice that delights, and for others still, their exotic perfumes are enveloping.
- 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.
