The Irish Champ.
 
The Midleton distilleries situated in Midleton, Cork County, Ireland, produces pure pot still Whiskey or single pot still as it's now officially known. It is made in a different way than single malt because the mash is made from both malted and un-malted green barley. The enzymes in the malted barley stimulate the production of malt in the un-malted barley. Also, single malt Whiskeys are generally distilled twice, whereas single pot still Whiskeys more often than not distilled three times.
 
Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey 12 Year Old is one of two Whiskeys on the market that are 100% single pot still Irish Whiskeys. It’s this—the process of making Whiskey in a copper pot still—from both malted and unmalted barley, that makes this Redbreast unique. Moreover, no grain Whiskey is added to the 12 Year old. It’s highly regarded as one of the best (if not the best) Irish Whiskeys, by notable critics and laymen alike.

A bit of ice to open it up perfect.

Delicate malt flavor with subtle spices that round out the flavor. I wish it might linger in the mouth a bit more however.

The best of Ireland!
Josh
Josh,
Nose is deceptively subtle. Unbelievably complex blend of citrus, bitter honey and green fruits. Smoother finish than most scotches I've had.
Eddie
Eddie,
Great Irish Whiskey to add to your bar. One to serve to those who haven't tried it before.

I'm typically a scotch drinker but this stuff is amazing. The finish is ridiculously smooth and full of flavor. I recommend chilling it with whisky stones or a tiny bit of ice (takes the alcohol taste severity down a few notches so you can enjoy the other favors). If you can take the heat, this is great neat (did not mean to rhyme). I will be keeping this in stock in my bar from this day forward.

Oily, vanilla with smoky touches. Great in a legitimate Irish Coffee if you dare.
