Redbreast 15 yr. old
46%
 
colour: copper
nose: fruit basket of red current, apple, grape, citrus/orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pot still character hard yet refined, gentle barley, soft oak, vanilla, excellent complexity, taste and balance.
palate: soft to start, sweet fruits, spice.
finish: wow….the fruit in this dram is complex and so tasty, it washes over your palate like waves, long finish with a good pot still character. everything in the nose is in the finish in spades.
 
notes: easily top ten whisky of all time. the fruit, complexity and balance make this an Irish classic. Don’t hesitate, get it if you can, this is excellent whisky and probably the best Irish whisky I’ve ever had. I’d buy it by the case if it were available.
