Quick Fire Whisky Tasting Notes

Redbreast 27 Year Old
Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
54.6% ABV

Nose: Richly rewarding with wondrous waves of blood orange, grilled pineapple rings, Alphonso mangoes, passion fruit and strawberries dusted with black pepper. Along with notes of Waitrose treacle tart, vanilla crème brûlée, bread pudding, coconut ice, toasted walnuts, cherry cough syrup, oodles of opulent charred oak and something rather rye-teously grain esque.

Palate: An assorted plethora of summer berry filled punnets, tea stewed prunes, cinnamon infused plum jam, grilled mango and orange peel. Followed by notes of Tunes cherry lozenges, Haribo Tangfastics, cold Ambrosia Devon custard, bread pudding, mixed spice, a pinch of cayenne pepper, toasted oak and a tease of menthol freshness.

Finish: A long, refined and charismatically confident finish, which helps to elevate this dram into an absolute stunner of a sensory story!

Summary: What else can be said about this latest permanent release from Redbreast, than it’s another dramspanking irish dramming ditty of a belter! Beautifully balanced interplay between bourbon, sherry and ruby port casks, which helps to deliver sip after sip of pure palatable pleasure!
