Originally a limited edition created exclusively for La Maison du Whisky in Paris, now a permanent member of the family. The extra years in the barrel have given Redbreast 15 Year Old a more mellow taste profile than it's younger sibling, Redbreast 12 Year Old.
A careful balance of first fill and refill casks accentuates the assorted spices within Redbreast’s characteristic full and complex flavour, amplified through additional maturation.
Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and then triple distilled in copper pot stills, Redbreast 15 is comprised exclusively of Pot Still whiskeys matured in the finest oak casks for no less than 15 years. A careful balance of first fill and refill casks accentuates the assorted spices within Redbreast’s characteristic full and complex flavour.
Nose Full and rich with a complex yet balanced mix of berry fruits and aromatic oils.
Taste Fully round and mellow with the succulence of fleshy fruit combined with spices and toasted wood.
Finish Long and sophisticated.
Review "Malt, caramel, toffee and orchard fruit all run out of the glass and onto the palate with reckless abandon and are soon followed by notes of pastries, grass and wood." - The Whisky Jug
