The Redbreast 12 years of age. A Pure Pot Still Irish whose distiller's beer contains a mixture of malted and unmalted barley. And is what leads the way: this blonde barley, mild and sweet, succulent and mouth watering just like good bread.

A nose of grain, of white and red flowers (I often see colors when I taste) and a hint of esters. So, just with the nose you can see the expertise with which the master distiller creates his mashbill and chooses his yeasts and his cut. I also found hints of vanilla and fruit, which makes me think that both barrels of bourbon and of sherry were used to mature the distillate.

On the palate, the malt sugar dukes it out with the wood in the opening bars. Then the cherry and the cherry stones appears followed by vanilla and dried fruits.

With a little water, green notes comes to the mouth: mint, basil and bay leaves. Fresh tobacco leaves. Wow, it's well done.

Another Irish hit too well hidden, it goes perfectly with the music of the Pogues: strong and sharp but also sweet and soft. The best whiskey under $ 45 and one of the best under $ 100. In the top 10 all around.

For fans of Crangganmore or Clynelish . Also resembles the forty creek barrel select . De, light, ful.
