Oh, ... mine again :-), ... yes, it will become the house whiskey.
On the nose it is on the light side. It is also not as dominant as is actually expected with 2x 1st fill. It starts with light fruit and fine bourbon vanilla. A hint of honey and bananas plus exotic fruitiness comes through. Oha!, After the first sip in the mouth and several seconds on the palate, the finest lemongrass and a hidden floral note are noticeable on the nose. Wonderfully fresh. With the second sip I even imagined a little "rose water" a few times. This is exactly the moment when many say that the pot stills technique is too artificial. Too many perfume notes also cloud the sensations. But this Redbreast21 makes it very elegant and not so intrusive. Respect to Jameson. Master craft.
After the first few seconds in the oral cavity, the memory of Christmas and spring “simultaneously” spreads. Very, very cool main part ... and well seasoned by the PotStills technique. Always butter-sweet with a concentrated, creamy mouthfeel, it creates wonderful waves of Christmas biscuits and fruit salad with flower petals that don't want to end. But it also reminds me of canned peaches and apricots. Wow, it is very, very complex on the palate. From now on I would like to have it on the shelf. That feeling should never end. Oh, a dangerous bottle. Arrived in Irish whiskey heaven. Version / 18. My best Irish so far.
Long, longer with exciting spiciness and a lot of drying apricot. Then he comes back and goes again. In several waves it lets go slowly with spicy fruitiness. On the one hand, not much is happening anymore. But he made the finale soothing and wonderfully long. There is something. The fact is: this bottle has several special features. Great cinema of Irish whiskey pot stills art.
PS: A big thank you to André for the big sample.
