Nose: Clean and pleasant. Like falling into a pile of freshly-cut alfalfa hay. Body: Light and fresh. I challenge a whisky-phobe to find something to complain about with this stuff. Palate: The gentle caress of fine silk on the tongue. This is a whiskey that is deceptively great. It's not trying to be a big, bold, knock your socks off and curl your toenails "Be A Man! I Dare You To Try Me!" Whisky. This stuff is as welcome and comforting as a sunny day in the middle of January. Although I'm such a newbie, I can definitely recognize the world-class quality of a whiskey like this.
One of the best whiskies in my modest collection. I've gotten one confirmed wine drinker to order (and pay for) his second glass of this stuff after I treated him to the first one. I'm still waiting to open my bottle of the 15 year old. I don't know what the situation is in Europe, but if Redbreast did more marketing in the States and Japan, it could give every other Irish brand a run for the money.
