    A consistently pleasant soft - typically Irish - whiskey. However, it is rather less complex, but all the more harmonious.
    • Nose
      80 80
      A very light scent that is not easy to classify. I would recognize something baked apple with raisins. Add some soft and sweet pear and some butter biscuit. But everything is subtle and no aroma particularly stands out.
    • Taste
      87 87
      In the mouth, a soft mouthfeel is immediately noticeable and the butter biscuit-like aromas come more to the fore. Something like light chocolate is now to be noted. Pear and baked apple remain in the background. No oak bitterness at all - despite the 15 years in the barrel. With the addition of water, the fruit is lured out again and the mouthfeel becomes even softer. Now I've also discovered something like blueberries. It seems rather heavy on the tongue.
    • Finish
      81 81
      The medium-length finish does not make any decisive changes, but slowly fades away with the aromas mentioned above. Throughout, he remains comfortable with no prominent features.

    Redbreast 15 years, 46% alc. Original bottling (2021). Ageing: Oloroso sherry casks and bourbon casks

    Nose: Spicy blackberry jam in oatmeal, pleasant sweetness. I also find pancakes with blueberries and maple syrup candied apples and a hint of tropical fruit. Oak wood aromas remain discreet and warming in the background.

    Palate: Here, too, blackberry jam and cereal aromas, but also significantly more spiciness than on the nose. Sugar beet, maple syrup, caramel and milk chocolate, I taste slightly burnt plum cake and cinnamon, there is also a pinch of colored pepper and cloves.

    Finish: Long, blood oranges and blackberries, gooseberries, almonds and then lots of oak.

    Conclusion: The tannins of the oak barrels come into their own with this Redbreast, the leap from the 12-year-old is enormous. A really nice whiskey. 87/100 points
