  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Another ageless redbreast? Yes why not? There were times when there were just two bottlings for Irish Single Pot Still aficionados: Green Spot and Redbreast 12. Fortunately, times have changed for the better and today there are countless different PLCs on the market. Redbreast 12 is still (despite its "only" 40%) the "light" in the SPS sky. The Cask Strength bottlings anyway. This redbreast with finish in the Lustau barrel is not a new fix star on the robin's skies, but it can definitely be seen in any case.
    • Nose
      Directly the smell of a full spice rack finds its way into the nose. You can not separate what's in there on this shelf, but it fits very well together. In addition, a fine sherry sweetness comes relatively quickly, which is not unusual for a Redbreast, but a little more subtle than the 12YO standard bottling appears. Maybe less intense. Dark berries mingle with the spices, figs and dates. Marzipan and nougat come with the time, then also fine oak aroma.
    • Taste
      Unexpectedly sweet start on the tongue. The spices from the nose are perceptible in the background, but the emphasis is clearly on the sherry sweetness from the Lustau barrel. The initial fears of a chewing gum note are not confirmed, which is probably due to the rather quickly occurring oak aroma. Over time, the sweetness comes to an end, the spices come forward, leather notes join, earthy notes can be found. Nice creamy mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      In the long finish sherry notes come again, but make room for oak, feinherbe spices & leather quite quickly.

  2. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Pretty young but with a very dry sherry which stimulates the taste. The nose tends towards the red fruit, the cherry but rather candied, and the raisin. Other than wheat and cereals, it's a very classic Irish whiskey. In the mouth, it's much drier and I like it, with a background of grenadine and spices on the finish. Personally, I prefer it to 12 years is more original.

  5. Jean Ginster scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty whiskey, an Irish with intense sherry, is doing very well, I think. Bought later.
    • Nose
      Sherry, sweet, subtle, but intense. Has a slightly sour and appetizing note. Raisins. Apples. Spicy, complex. caramel Very nice nose, pleasant, complex, because I can smell it for a long time.
    • Taste
      Direct sherry. Sweet, then intensively spicy. Mouth filling, well balanced. Then a slightly sour note. Nuts, some coffee.
    • Finish
      quite a long finish. It remains an oak flavor with a medium sweetness. In the aftertaste sherry notes with raisins and nuts come from the throat again.

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Delicious redbreast, they can do almost nothing wrong, Sherry goes well with it.
    • Nose
      Red apples, some nice figs behind, bitter orange with shell, oregano, some fine leather, some autumn leaves, dried fruits, herbs, some earthy and licorice
    • Taste
      Beautiful Sherrynoten direct, bitter orange, plums, red apples, autumn leaves, some tobacco, leather, dark chocolate, dark honey, all sorts of dried fruits, very aromatic and full, beautiful, with the 46% perfectly balanced
    • Finish
      Red apple with brown malt, somewhat nutty with the leather and a nice, medium to long finish

  7. wisekycourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    a little more deg than the basic, more fruits in my opinion, but no real novelty, even almost flatter than his big brother!
    • Nose
      fragrant, fruity, malty, spicy
    • Taste
      sweetness on the palate, creamy, intense fruits but not distinct enough however, a little woody
    • Finish
      medium, strong enough but monolithic
