Type: Irish Whiskey
At the end of 2005, for the 50th Anniversary of La Maison du whisky, Midleton distilleries bottled for the first time in its history a 15 Year old Redbreast. This Limited Edition created a big uproar, at that time, a great clamor. We are now happy to offer you this second version which looks like two drops of Irish Whiskey compared to the original one, with a new addition of coconut, iris and cocoa beans.
With the creation of an appellation dediée Redbreast became a Single Pot Still (all actual pure pot comes from one distillery only: therefore it was decided to emphasize this matter, as much as Scottish distilleries emphasize their Single Malt and Single Grain).
• Fragrance: a purebred, intoxicating. Cereals, lime, chamomile and curry are the first perfumes that we encounter. A thin layer of tar at first, but immediately after arrives the famous red berries (currant and blackberry) which built the fame of this Irish Whiskey. Then it turns to vanilla, spices (cloves and cinnamon) and candied fruits (apricot).
• Taste: crispy and cheerful. You immediately nibble the cassis and fruit de la passion pulp and berries. The second sip reveals the taste of plants from the green woods and of yangl-yangl.
• Aftertaste: long and slightly tannic, shows a considerable variety of fruits. For some, the soft sensation on the skin is a pure pleasure, for others is the delight of their sweet juices, and for others again are the irresistible exotic perfumes.
