A very nice single pot Irish whisky. The nose was almost better than the taste. Mild/smooth for a 12y whisky. Though I'm not a fan of Irish whisky I found it some whst pleasant.

General description

Ein fantastischer Whisky. Zurückhaltender Sherry in der Nase; jede Menge Frucht. Bei mir bilden sich sofort Assoziationen zu grünem Apfel, Limette, Grapefruit, junger Birne, aber auch süßem Obst wie Mango und Anklängen an Aprikose. Auch macht sich eine leichte Würze des Pot Still Charakters unmittelbar bemerkbar. Geschmacklich stellt sich eine schöne Frucht und Süße ein, die sehr bald von pfeffriger Würze abgelöst wird.
Bei diesem Redbreast gibt es einiges zu entdecken.

General description

Very surprised by this Redbreast 12.
It's a pot still, triple distilled and bottled at 40% Abv.
The nose is a harmonic ensemble of sherry, fruit, cream, vanilla and roasted nuts with gentle alcohol.
The taste starts of soft, even watery, but alcohol and spice slowly built op to an explosion of peppery spice.
But that's balanced with sweet fruit and caramel.
The long firm spicy finish also is a complex mixture of all the things mentioned above.
Advisable for lovers of sweet complex and bold flavours.

Score 84.

My favorite whiskey to date. It is soft on the nose and pallet. It leaves a slight warming feeling in your throat and stomach, but not in a harsh way.

Warm spicy vanilla on the nose with some sweetness

Warm and inviting flavors of vanilla cinnamon and mild oak

Finish
