- Appearance : orangey copper.
- Nose : the very complex nose can be broken down into five aromatic sequences. 1st sequence: juicy orange, toasted walnut, emery cloth. 2nd sequence: star anise, black pepper, incense, beeswax. 3rd sequence: clove, cane, cumin, mustard, curry. 4th sequence: mango, Cayenne pepper, apricot and apricot stone. 5th sequence: thuja, cedar, flambéed banana, hyacinth, lily. Note that the increase in power is gradual and could not be more harmonious.
- Palate : dense, lively. With rare concentration, the attack goes back over the entire fruity palette of the nose, including the apricot stone. Gradually, notes of vanilla, coconut milk and maple syrup bring lots of creaminess and freshness. On the mid-palate, grains of malted and unmalted barley that rival each other in intensity provide the very definition of a single pot still. Therefore very Irish, the palate becomes increasingly pastry-scented (financier, lemon cake) and herbaceous (lime blossom, rosemary). Following this, the end of the palate boasts impressive lyricism.
- Overall : long, slender. From compote fruits (pear, plum) to red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) and notes of salted butter caramel to flavours of bouquet garni, the start of the finish guides the tasting to notes of tobacco, coffee and gianduja. Both creamy (flan) and tangy (lime), the very end of the palate loses none of this concentration. On the retro-nasal olfaction, exotic fruits (mango, guava, persimmon) are covered in black peppercorn and almond milk. The empty glass allows a glimpse of jute bags open and overflowing with spices (pink peppercorn, star anise, cumin, nutmeg).
- 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.
