  1. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    If one fears here with an "All Sherry Limited Edition" rather the sugary fruit punch, one will be pleasantly disappointed. The earthy and spicy notes outweigh the maturation in the sherry barrel in Facon.
    • Nose
      A nose full of dark fruits: A compote of ripe red grapes, blackberries and currants, mixed with dried figs, dates and raisins. Fine spicy, leathery, edrig.
    • Taste
      Strong, full and pot still-spicy on the go. Although "All Sherry" -ripe, the palate is not sherry dominantant, but tends with a touch of dried fruit rather into the tart. Light spiciness of licorice and white pepper, which becomes stronger behind.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and full of spices. Here are also the earthy and leathery notes from the nose again.

    really a nice dram. meanwhile too expensive.
    the 21 is the better choice at a lower price.
    but this is good whiskey!
    • Nose
      a load of fruit, spices and oak. quite grainy but not unpleasant at all. bananas, pineapple, mango.
      also earthy notes, moss, fern.
      nicely balanced
    • Taste
      initially sweet but then getting a bit dryer.
      very fruity and spicy, a little oaky too.
      again a nice balance.creamy mouthfeel
    • Finish
      relatively long wit a dry spiciness

    Aus einer Nachricht der Destillerie (21.01.16):

    Mano a Lámh, gone but not forgotten.

    It’s true. We are writing to let you know that all two thousand bottles of our limited edition, all sherry, Redbreast Mano a Lámh are gone. Every last drop.

    my fav redbreast replacing CS12 increased rating after half way through bottle, some oxygen contact definitely improves the experience.

    Marzipan and Battenburg Cake rise from the glass with a
    surprisingly large amount of vanilla for an ‘all-oloroso’ offering. This
    some spirituous notes but this is one of those occasions where this is
    a positive as it provides a platform for the lovely, sweet flavours
    to play.
    Light and airy but with hidden depth.

    Palate: This is a smooth whiskey with a sweet back palate, some frozen
    red berries and hot vanilla sauce on top. It is terribly easy to drink, as you
    would expect from a Redbreast, but a block of ice really takes this up a level
    to a longer, more sipping whiskey. The flavours from the nose deliver on the
    palate too.

    Finish: Sweetened vanilla custard, almonds and some milk chocolate praline.Overall: Well, there we have it folk... the rise of Single Pot
    Still Irish Whiskey doesn’t seem fleeting, or limited to core expressions. It
    seems to be strong, and rising.

    "-Mano a Lámh has no age statement to allow our Master Blender, Billy Leighton further freedom to choose from a range of ages to achieve his desired profile. We can advise however that the youngest whiskey used is 13 years old. "

    Distillery tasting notes.
    • Nose
      Very deep dried fruit notes, raisins and sultanas with the more earthy
      tones of figs, dates and prunes. The sweetness is from the fruit and
      balances perfectly with pot still spices such as dill and black pepper,
      and the contribution of the toasted Spanish oak.
    • Taste
      Silky smooth and deceptively sweet. Full of rich ripe dark fruit with the leisurely emergence of the signature spices
    • Finish
      The rich fruit slowly gives way to the perfections of the Spanish oak.
