my favorite, every day drinker. I might be partial since this is the one that really got me into whiskey in general but its always my solid go-to
 
Samuel
Samuel,
Rich flavor for a relative low-proof, the oil content is just right, long sweet finish.
 
Joe
Joe,
Hearty nose. Full flavor. Body still light. Warking finish.
 
PATRICK
PATRICK,
This is not a bottle I will buy again. I found it to be inferior in every way to all of the other redbreast iterations. Not bad by any means, but just do yourself a favor and get the 12.
 
Carroll
Carroll,
A great go to Whiskey...the 12 is fine but the 15 much smoother!

Not much flavor, but not bad tasting Lots of fire Price point is a bit high for what it is Not too sweet, good malt Will warm you up
 
Carmund
Carmund,
Don’t even know where to start: extremely smooth. I totally get the maple and wood. It goes down so easily that it is hard to keep it in my mouth long enough to get all of the flavors
 
Linda
Linda,
Nice on the nose, and smooth. Maple with a bit of bite. Definitely worth the price.
 
Chuck
Chuck,
Berry toffee aroma with tangy notes and spicy & pepper undertones. Crisp followed with mild sweet finish. Beautiful experience.

Jani,
Whenever ordering a dram of any Redbreast, you know you're bound to get a quality whisky.
 
Candice
Candice,
One of my favorites. Caramel and red fruit

Like this one very much, best redbreast I’ve had
 
Collin
Collin,
A solid whiskey. Lots of maple syrup on the nose with a some vanilla notes as well. Oak and spice on the palate. Oily finish.

Truly a great whiskey!

Right on the border of pricey and great

Smooth but a little lacking in flavor, liked Yellow Spot a lot more
 
Todd
Todd,
Aroma is very nice on this one, citrus, fruit, some honey as well. Taste has some pepper and other spices coming in, along with some fruit and wood. I could drink this one all night - really enjoyable, and it's quite a bit different than the Redbreast 12 Year Cask Strength. I wouldn't say the 15 Year is better than the 12 Year Cask - but it's really close.
 
Scott
Scott,
Even more smooth than the 12 year old

Oberpriced!

Fairly smooth, not as complex as some

Live this.!

Very very smooth
 
David
David,
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.
 
Robert
Robert,
Didn’t like as much as expected.
 
Jyrki
Jyrki,
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.
 
Burton
Burton,
Irish whiskeys always seem approachable, friendly, nice. I appreciate the oily mouth feel. Noticeable bourbon barrel influence. Nice dram.
 
Paul
Paul,
Exceptionally smooth
 
Darin
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
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.

Gregory,
The best Irish Whiskey!!
