  • Intro:

    Triple distilled in a copper pot still, this 27yr release from Redbreast is now a core expression, and features maturation in bourbon, sherry and ruby port casks.

  • Nose:

    Nutty, red berries, sweet cream and honey. Praline, cinnamon, lovely raisin bread character.

  • Taste:

    Sweet and tangy on the palate. Lime zest, honey, red berries. Cream, vanilla bean. The Ruby Port is unmistakable, bringing bright, jammy fruits to a peach ring Irish whiskey profile. Surprisingly restrained oak profile for the age.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, filled with peach rings, strawberries and cream and some pepper.

  • Overall:

    Lovely and rich. Not exceptional but it’s delightfully complex and a profile you’ll be hard pressed to find in another bottling, especially from Ireland.

  • Score:

    7
