REDBREAST 27 elevates the storied reputation of this iconic whiskey even further. Building on the celebrated foundation of BOURBON and SHERRY CASK INFLUENCE, the inclusion of RUBY PORT CASKS brings even more COMPLEXITY and DEPTH . Nearly THREE DECADES in the shaping, this cask strength Redbreast is a joy to behold in each and every bottle. 40% ABV
NOSE: A succulent medley of EXOTIC FRUITS, MANGO, PINEAPPLE, BLOOD ORANGE and ripe RED BERRIES and complemented by FRESH HERBS, AROMATIC OILS AND WOOD SPICES. VANILLA sweetness and TREACLE TOFFEE add to the richness, while WALNUTS and TOASTED OAK acknowledge the contribution from a supreme cask selection.
TASTE: Incredibly rich in texture with a luxuriously FRUITY introduction. Ripe red fleshed PLUMS, BLACK CHERRIES and SUMMER BERRIES are balanced by the prickle of a hint of CHILLI OIL. The taste evolves as CHERRY menthol, VANILLA and CINNAMON SWEET SPICES combine with RED PEPPER, NUTMEG and TOASTED OAK for an intriguing complexity.
FINISH: A satisfyingly long balance of RIPE FRUIT and WOOD SPICES, worthy of a journey of nearly three decades.
Best Irish Pot Still (21 Years & Older) - World Whiskies Awards 2023
"Wonderfully vibrant on the nose with peach melba, black tea, blackcurrant and a gentle wisp of smoke on the nose. The palate continues the fruit theme with papaya and baked pineapple, before a warming cinnamon finish rounds things off."
Best Of Class, Double Gold - SF World Spirits Competition 2023
Best Irish Whiskey, 99 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023
"Red and dark fruits interlace with tropical notes, enriched with an elegance of warming baking spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. The palate delivers a fabulous mouthfeel, rich with caramelised pineapple, apricot jam, milk and dark chocolate and gingerbread. Exquisite, multi layered and fantastically complex.
96 Points, Finalist, Top 100 - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2023
"Potent and velvety, this whisky has bold fruit flavors of roasted fig, macerated red plum, and toasted walnuts, with a bright and joyful finish that displays brighter red-cherry and watermelon candy interweaving among more serious notes of toasted vanilla and charred oak."

93 Points - Whisky Advocate
"This new permanent addition to the Redbreast range is partially matured in ruby port casks, which have helped the vitality and the complexity of the finished whiskey while still delivering a remarkable intensity of red berry fruit."
