  1. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    The Redbreast 21y (2020) is a highly aromatic whiskey after the first rounds of getting to know each other, which impresses above all with its fruit-spice mixture with full creaminess. The play of aromas of the ex-bourbon and ex-sherry barrels, in combination with the spicy aromas and the dense 46%, reminds me of the Pulteney 25y. The fine "potstill wort" then clearly shows (and as with the 12-CS) that there is an Irishman in the glass.

      Malty flavor, "Potstillaromen" (as with 12er-CS). In the first impression it also reminds me of the 25 mm Pulteney; the beautiful mixture of sherry and bourbona barrel flavors, paired with fine coastal spice, sounds familiar to me. Only tenderly apricot and mango appear in the second wave. Looks full and calm. Further tastings reveal very intense apricot aromas with ripe peach; the "exotic" takes over the mango. After an hour in the glass, floral notes are added (violets, lily of the valley), the potstill spice compliments very pleasantly.

      Comes into the mouth in a mild and creamy manner. The seasoning with a little chervil and marjoram appears, the fruitiness with apricot and grape notes joins it. And again the beautiful bourbon and sherry barrel flavor mix with a fine salt spray primer. Some more vanilla; the grape becomes sweeter and lies in the mango bed. Also pleasantly fruity and creamy in further tests, supplemented by elegant potstill spices. The mixture of ex-bourbon and sherry barrel flavors is absolutely successful.
    • Finish
      93 93
      The finish is medium to long and finely warming. Very aromatic and intense. Fruity, spicy. The finish becomes a little longer and warming in further detailed tests. Very aromatic.
