Redbreast is a pure potstill whisky, meaning it is made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and is distilled in a potstill. It is in our new grains tasting. Dominic says "After three gentle runs on the lower slopes this is grain on the slalom course, its complex flavours whipping back and forth at a different speed and with a different intensity to the three grains which have gone before it. This has an intense and more savoury aspect to it, and there are sour apples among the sweet ones. The influence of the wood makes this the lean older brother to the puppy fat youngsters which have gone before."

Combined notes and scores Nose: Big hit of toffee, green fruits and wood. Slightly coffee-ish. Taste: Red and green fruits and toffee. Nicely balanced. Finish: Quite rich, spiciness gives it structure.
