Redbreast 15, 46% ABV
Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
Gingerbread, toffee and cocoa. Cereal, cinnamon and pepper. Glace cherries, honey roasted nuts and oak spice. A bit grassy and minty. Faint metallic notes. Leather, vanilla and musk.
Medium-full bodied, creamy and mouth-coating. Milk chocolate, barley sugar and sweet cereal followed by sharp citrus and spices. Honey eucalyptus cough drops. Salted caramel. Rosehip tea with honey. Dried mandarin peel, ripe kiwi and salted kumquats.
Ripe citrus, anise and nutmeg. Double macchiato with brown sugar. Herbal and a bit piney. Medium, peppery and tannic.
The best Irish I’ve had. Well balanced and quite complex. I still got some pine and mint/menthol notes that I normally get in Irish whiskeys, but they work here and were not overwhelming. I need to find some CS Redbreast…
