Tasting Notes

"This is an incredible single pot still whiskey from Redbreast. It opens with chestnut, vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon; it feels deceptively light at first, but then the port finish comes through with an unmistakably fruity, jammy note reminiscent of red currants. This is a spicy, high-proof expression, and a few drops of water can help open it up. However one drinks it, it's a superb whiskey."
