Produced in The Midleton distilleries situated in Midleton, Cork County, this is a ‘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 are generally distilled three times.
 
Redbreast is one of the few single pot still Whiskeys produced today and is the only one with an age statement. 15 Year Old is matured in a combination of American Bourbon Whiskey barrels and Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks.

Comment: 
Jim Murray: ‘…one of the finest expressions of Whiskey making in Ireland - a true collector's item.’

Irish Whiskey became the most prominent Whiskey and most popular spirit in the 19th century because of the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.

Ken
Ken,
its a little harsh, compared to the 12 year. For the price I would just stick with the 12 year which I find smoother with better flavor.

Absolutely the best Irish I've tasted. Very full and complex on the nose and taste.
 
Tyler
Tyler,
Not as sweet as you would expect, get the Carmel Apple on the nose with a little cereal, then sip into a lightly sugared shortbread cookie that finishes with spice and green apple.
 
Matt
Matt,
A great all round whiskey. I am a big fan of RB12, so this is similar but is 46% as apposed to 40%. And obviously another 3 years in the wood. Easy to drink neat. Add some water to unlock some more flavor. Every collection needs a bottle of redbreast.
 
Creston
Creston,
Incredible nutty flavor and very smooth. Worth the price for sure.

Irish whiskeys always seem approachable, friendly, nice. I appreciate the oily mouth feel. Noticeable bourbon barrel influence. Nice dram.

Darin,
An absolute delight and so smooth. At first trying Redbreast 12 I thought that was the best Irish Whiskey ever. Then I had the 15. Not only was I amazed at what 3 years could do...but I swore I would never waste my time on that 12 year trash again. Wow. I simply love this as my favorite overall whiskey.
 
Paige
Paige,
What a fairly complex yet simple Whisky this is! You can literally taste each ingredient every step of the way. I could post my full tasting notes but would nearly mimic what’s already been stated. I will say, I got chocolate on the nose and on the finish which I though was intriguing... Well done with the 15 Year Redbreast!

Lane,
Very nice to sit at a slow fire and enjoy neat, one of the few whiskies I have tried that didn't improve with a few drops of water, nice bite with a malty finish!

Definitely more refined than the 12 year but not so much to make the premium price worth it. If you insist on paying a premium try the cask strength 12 year or 21 yr at a super premium. Readbreast is my go to whiskey and I always have each of their offerings on hand.
