Redbreast 12 Years Old

Redbreast 12 Years Old

Gold Medal 2016

Toasted grains, under-ripe orchard fruits, light muscavado sugar and fresh nutmeg on the nose. Cooking apple, apricot kernals and marzipan take pride of place on the palate, with vanilla pods sweetness vying with nut skin bitterness to finish.

Best Irish Pot Still 12 Years and Under 2014

Aromatic and warm with roasted almonds and ginger, nutmeg and honey. Cinnamon spice, lemon zest and more honey on the palate. Mark Gillespie

Sweet and lusciously creamy with glowing hot white pepper. Lovely light fruitness and perhaps an afterglow of liquorice. Davin de Kergommeaux

Classic pot still, initial honeysuckle sweetness followed by a light, dry palate with honeydew melon. Jim Anderson
