Redbreast is a 12-year-old, single aged pure pot-stilled whiskey that’s been triple distilled in traditional copper pot stills from malted and unmalted barley mashes. It might be the finest Irish whiskey available. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010, and was named as Irish Whiskey of the year by Jim Murray in the Whisky Bible 2010, with a score of 96 points.

Full of aroma and flavour, Redbreast 12 Year Old benefits from a strong contribution from distillates which have matured in Oloroso sherry casks, giving it its trademark Christmas cake character.

Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. For lovers of the style, Redbreast approaches perfection. MICHAEL JACKSON, WHISKY -THE DEFINITIVE WORLD GUIDE.

If the ship was going down within sight of a desert island my flailing left hand would make a grab for a bottle of Redbreast. DAVE BROOM, AUGUST 2011, EDINBURGH.

This is, without doubt, one of the world’s finest whiskeys. CHARLES MACLEAN, GREAT WHISKEYS.

Redbreast is the secret restaurant tucked away in the back of the strip mall that only a handful of people know about. The atmosphere is great and the food divine, but no one is sure that they should tell other people about it because either it’ll become too crowded (and thus will be impossible to get a table) or the increased production by the staff in the back will affect the overall quality of the place. KATE HOPKINS, 99 DRAMS OF WHISKEY.

Redbreast 12. Very elegant, complex and stylish. Honeyed and silky in texture, with toffee, toasted marshmallow, nougat, maple syrup, banana bread and a hint of toasted coconut. Bright fruit and golden raisin blend in nicely with the layers of sweetness. Impeccable balance and very approachable. JOHN HANSELL, MALT ADVOCATE, FALL 2010. RATING 96.

The bite lingers a bit on the tongue and then dissipates to reveal even more honey and graham cracker. The next act is a fruit encore before the finish slowly fades. At this point rise and give it a standing ovation. JACK BETTRIDGE, CIGAR AFICIONADO.
