    really great fruity nose with hints of mint, it is really easy drinkable and enjoyable. the finish is its weakest part, a bit short and relatively dry.

  7. holborndrinker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    One of the few drams where I get a discernible mint like note - very pleasant dram.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Menthol, almost eucalyptus on the nose.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Well balanced with notes of mint and possibly sage - herbal.
      Silky in texture.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The herbal notes linger for a long time.

    My best Irish whiskey so far. As a fan of Scotch, I can say that this one competes with good Scotch.

    Vanilla, creamy, yellow fruits, with a long finish.

  10. Goethe scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This Redbreast is very rich concerning it's flavor (esp. the fruit basket). Fruits all over the place. The 2021 version is my favorit so far since 2013. Almost 92 points in my book.
    Concerning price/performance ratio: 9/10
    • Nose
      Tropical fruits, overripe mangos, papayas, rich berry jam (blackberry), pineapples, oranges, some madeiraish cask influence (maybe it is the Irish thick character from the single Pot Still.)
    • Taste
      Again the Irish thick character from the single Pot Still as you can get it in the 21 year old Bushmills (but more sophisticated compared to Bushmills). Dark berries, dark winegums, caramel, raisins.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Tropical fruits, oranges. Some sweet oak.

  11. Keule_Minouge scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Gorgeous nose! Tropical fruits, oriental spices, vanilla. Triggers everything for me. The nose continues in the mouth, even if the potstill spiciness and the fruity notes somewhat drowns out. Nice long, warm, spicy, fruity finish. A nice thing where what the nose promises is kept from beginning to end.

    Robin, I just like you! From the standards, the very strong 12 year old CS, to the still affordable 21 year old.
