Redbreast 12 yo

Redbreast 12 yo

Official bottling
Single malt - Southern Ireland
Amber, tinge of red
40% ABV

Nose: Oranges, watermelons, bananas, brown paper, black tea, hints of pomeloes. 
Mouthfeel: Medium body, turns syrupy, thickens, slightly oily. 
Tasting: Sweet sour. Oranges, black tea, vanilla, bananas, peaches, hints of pomeloes. 
Finish: Short. Black tea, peaches, vanilla, dried apples. 


Pot still Irish whiskey, newly released (well, new since my last major foray into Irish whiskey, years ago - shame on me). It's fruity, light and floral, with a slight astringency that I interpret as black tea. Great finish, slightly bitter, fruity - exactly like a Turkish apple tea perhaps?


I like this.
