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 12YO 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.

There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first spirits ever made.

One of my all time favorites! It is hard to beat Redbreast 12!
 
William
William,
The smoothest Irish whiskey I’ve ever tasted. It will be the top shelf Irish whiskey in my bar.
 
Michael
Michael,
Enjoyable smooth. While picking up on the vanilla & spice, I noticed no apple. I'm hoping if I purchase the cash strength there'll be a stronger apple presence.

Exceptional. Very enjoyable.
 
Victor
Victor,
One of the most amazing Irish Whiskys I have ever tried. Incredibly smooth with heavy notes of Vanilla, apple, and Caramel. A finish with spicy notes with slight hints of sherry. Incredible.

Started to like this more as my taste buds matured past Greenspot
 
Jason
Jason,
Most reliably delicious Irish I've ever had. Notes of vanilla, sherry, cherries, sweet finish. Best lightly diluted with distilled or filtered water.
 
Jason
Jason,
One of the best Irish whiskies in the world. I prefer the 12 to the older versions. My only issue is the price. There are several bourbons I enjoy just as much for far less money.

This has become my go to favorite. The aroma alone just makes me all warm and fuzzy. Great mouth feel and almost no burn. Makes everything else seem like rotgut.

Completely delicious
 
Scott
Scott,
I'm just a neophyte in the drinking of Whisky, but Redbreast 12 is by far one of the best Irish Whiskeys I've tasted, very smooth, and not too overwhelming on the palate. A comfortable whiskey to be sure, not too fierce, and (in my opinion) a clean finish.

Chris,
This is my desert island whiskey. So smooth, and complex. Wonderful spices, caramel and honey, but none over power the other. I could drink this any day, any time. Probably my favorite all-around whiskey.

Chuck
Chuck,
An absolute delight, from the rich,sweet, honeyed creaminess in the nose, to the smooth sherried fruity mouthfeel, to the warm finish. There'll always be a bottle of this on my shelf.
 
Laura
Laura,
It’s very good, but not for the faint of heart.
 
Russ
Russ,
A very nice example of Irish Whisky. Smooth. Maybe too smooth? Could use a little further aging. I have had the 15 year and the Lustau and both of them are more enjoyable.

I liked it. Lives up to its reputation of smootheness and an easy inexpensive daily
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Smooth, warm, a whiskey I’d drink neat when I prefer to mix. Definitely not an every day whiskey and only in the right company. This is top shelf hide from your friends (unless they’re discerning whisky drinkers). Sip and enjoy!

Surprisingly smooth with a strong fruit taste with a pleasant finish. Great!
 
David

The smoothness of Redbreast is unparalleled! Neat or on the rocks is spectacular! This is single malt scotch to be enjoyed around friends in the kitchen or around a fire-pit! I have introduced several friends to Redbreast and they continually thank me for introducing them to this great scotch! This will always be my go to!

Wonderfully smooth to drink with a creamy feel. Subtle flavors of sherry with a bit of nuttiness and malt - as relaxing as whiskey gets.

Solid Irish Whiskey. Didn’t get much complexity from it but that’s expected from an Irish Whiskey.

Strong smell of cherry. Initial fruity taste followed by an oaky finish which pleasently lingers for a while. Very smooth and enjoyable whiskey.

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.
 
guest
guest,
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.
