It grabs your taste buds and just doesn't let go.
 
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.

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.
