Redbreast, 15-year-old, Irish Whiskey (46%)

Description

The 15 year old is the latest addition in the acclaimed Redbreast range. This is a single pot still Irish Whiskey bottled at 46% ABV and non-chill filtered.

Nose: With Green Spot, the most impressive of Irish noses. There's a fruity, almost rye-like quality, and deft, honeyed sweetness, a touch of sherry, cream soda vanilla and some peppery notes. Breathtaking.
Palate: The flavours take off in all directions. Spiciness and a pot still backbone softened by sherry. Very firm with some toffee.
Finish: Oily, some liquorice and enormous sweet-sour complexity. Spicy and long.
Comment: Not quite perfect, but still an astonishing experience.
Jim Murray -Whisky Magazine



Nose: Intense and full blooded. Pot still richness: citrus oils, hot sealing wax, leather, tobacco, tea, maraschino, overripe fruits, marzipan. Exemplary. Palate: Ridiculously big. Oozes into the mouth and erupts. Spices galore to the finish. Oily and unctuous. Finish: Long, rich, oily. Comment: Whiskey covering the entire spectrum of aroma, taste, feel, flavour. World class.

About this SPIRIT

Jameson

Jameson

John Jameson's Dublin Distillery was founded in 1780. His family motto and guiding philosophy was Sine Metu, meaning Without Fear, which appears today on every bottle of Jameson Irish Whiskey. He set new standards in whiskey distilling by investing in the latest manufacturing processes. When he discovered that certain strains of barley made a superior whiskey, he persuaded local farmers to grow them by providing seed grain every spring.

In 1858, a blight destroyed France's vineyards and consequently supplies of brandy dried up. Traditional brandy drinkers switched to Irish whiskey and Jameson sales soared. Before Prohibition in 1919, Jameson was one of the best selling whiskeys in America. But after Prohibition, exports of Jameson to the USA ground to a halt. Up until 1922, Jameson was the most popular whiskey in the British Empire. But after Irish Independence, English tariff barriers priced it out of the market. Without overseas demand, all 400 Irish whiskey brands fell into decline.

By 1966, only four whiskey distilling companies were left in the Republic of Ireland. John Jameson & Sons was one of them. Eventually the four joined forces and formed Irish Distillers. In 1975, Irish Distillers opened a new state of the art whiskey distillery in Midleton Co. Cork. Jameson Whiskey was then distilled outside of Dublin for the first time in 200 years.
