  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Oeh some glue alert! Needs to settle down a bit. After some time, it gives fruity notes and some sweet wood tones. But I guess this one needs some water. With water it develops more into a classic Irish/ Redbreast nose.

    Taste:
    Without water: this gives a quite warm mouth-feel, with some sweet caramel notes and some grassy notes too. It doesn't develop very much though. With water it gets more sweeter and more fruity.

    Body:
    Full and creamy

    Finish:
    Long length. Very typical Irish. Sweet, fruity, sweet caramel and a hint of wood.

    Price:
    As long as under €70,- it is good priced.

    Presentation:
    Nice decent and a bit outdated, which I appreciate.

    Comments:
    I cannot choose but this one and the regular 15yo are very decent whiskey's. Probably the best Irish out there. This one gives you almost a bottle and a half due to the ABV though.

  6. wisekycourse scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    very marked smell fruity and pastry, a sweetness to the nostrils,
    caramel, chocolate, a side a little honey too, herbs, fruits walls
    the mouth leaves on the bitterness of continuation, not very pleasant, almonds cooked and a bit bitter, then vanilla, a little lemon, then caramel sweet and well buttered!
    herbs, spices pretty raised
    the fruits go on the cooked pineapple, on the slightly acid apples, good mixture at this level with also the aroma of the artificial candy acidulated and the pink chewing gum of origin!
    final bitter enough yet, hiding a little too the subtlety of cooked fruits and wood!
    long enough though.

  8. Mardo scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    smell: fruity, soft, ripe fruit, mango, leather / wax, toffee
    taste: fruity, alcohol clearly present citrus
    aftertaste: citrus fruit, bitter.
    with water even more fruit and really better.

  9. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Colour: gold
    Nose: apples, stewed apples, caramel, vanilla, christmas cake, furniture varnish.
    Mouth: apples, dryness, dust, spices, pepper.
    Finish: long, spices, apples, pepper, vanilla and light salmon notes at the end.
    Redbreast 12YO cask strength is a good balanced, tasty whiskey. In spite of high proof, it’s an easy drinkable one.
