Redbreast 12 Year old
Beautifully balanced pure pot still Irish Whiskey. In the view of many connoisseurs, the finest Irish whiskey available. “…an astonishing experience” 9/10 Jim Murray in Whisky Magazine.
Nose: Clean, fresh. Hint of linseed. Nuts. Cake.
Palate: By far the biggest of this selection. Assertive and complex, with lots of development and seemingly infinite dimension. Ginger cake, brazil nuts, treacle.
Finish: Liquorice-like sherry notes.
Comment: Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. Makes me want to get on a plane to Dublin immediately.
Score: 9 / 10
