Was hat der denn für ne geile Note in der Nase?! Das erinnert an diese künstlichen, süßen Kirschen. So ein wenig wir Mon Cherie aber nicht ganz...Mega. Dann kommen da noch exotische Früchte dazu...aber alle aus der Haribo-Tüte und nicht vom Baum. Ich muss die ganze Zeit an einen Tukan denken :-D. Unglaublich künstlich-süß, aber total lecker. 

Im Geschmack wird es dann ein klein wenig schokoladig...aber wieder sind diese Haribo-Tutti-Frutti-Aromen da. Und BANANA!!! Der Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden. Sehr cremig die Sutsche. 
Geil....was für ein Teil...der Abgang geht nahtlos über. 
Ich bin absolut begeistert!

The tropical fruits shine in the mouth with my beloved aromatic peaches and nectarines playing the central role. A very good whisky and a bargain when found under 150 euros.

Fruity, but not fruitbombs like some of the many nice single cask Irish released the past few years. It does have one fruit that I love and it is LYCHEE. Lots of it! It's also quite dense and heavy and has a nice mouthfeel. Good amount of oak spice which doesn't detract from the overall score.

Nose

Tropical pineapple,crushed peanuts. Rich rounded, spicy-prunes, quinces, a little deeply caramelized  apple. Nice sweetness.

Taste

Mouth-filling and reassuring . A little menthol  alongside the expected spiciness  and some leather, at the back a hint of nectarine. 

Finish

Long. Beautiful. A little tangy fruit gives way to sweet and savory barley notes.

Comments

Wonderful 21y. Very enjoyable. Lovely. One of the best Redbreasts.

Color

Nose

Tropical fruits, overripe mangos, 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. Berries, dark winegums, caramel, raisins.

Finish

Medium to long. Tropical fruits, oranges. Some sweet oak (very fresh indeed).

Comments
This Redbreast is very rich concerning it's flavor (esp. the fruit basket). Fruits all over the place. 
Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
