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.
Yellow Spot has recently been reintroduced as a 12 year old whisky. It’s garnered a lot of praise since its release, even winning Whisky Advocate’s Irish Whisky of the Year Award. I liked it NAS brother Green Spot, but Redbreast 12, another single pot still whisky from Midleton Distillery, was a real favorite. I think Yellow Spot has a good chance to follow in those footsteps, especially considering that is presented at 46% ABV and is non chill filtered. Good stuff!
