— Just like Redbreast 12 but smoother and more vanilla, if you like the OG you won’t be disappointed. At $292 it’s also the lowest price I’ve ever found it for right here in Flaviar! Stock up while it’s under 3 stacks.

Smooth, creamy finish
This is a very difficult review. My rating factors in the $300 price tag because while I would love to just judge each whiskey independently regardless of price, it is too hard for me to rate a bottle the same when I just plopped down $300 versus $50. On the one hand, the whiskey has some unique and extremely enjoyable qualities. In particular, the gold appearance and nuanced nose that you can get lost in for great lengths of time. The initial palate is great with apple and mint showing up strongest for me. On the other hand, to me the finish ended with an industrial "heat" quality that I would not expect from a 21 year old at such a high price and the flavor complexities that were apparent in the beginning quickly vanish.
Superb, perhaps the worlds finest beverage.
Lovely caramel, just a hint of leather then spice. Beautiful finish. Worth every penny.
All time favorite, so far.
This is the bottle Odin would pick
Near the top of all the whiskies I have ever tried. I would simply describe it as decadent. If you like the Redbreast 12 and can afford the bottle, I would recommend buying it immediately.
Dessert in a glass. Enjoyed a few glasses tonight fireside with friends and family. An absolute classic.
Simply put.... This is amazing and worth every penny. Picked mine up in Ireland on our honeymoon. Glad I did.
I love all things Redbreast (12 through 27) but I am slightly disappointed in the finish of the 21. The nose and the taste are amazing but the nutty/earthy finish lingers in a way that seems a little off from the start of the experience. No other Redbreast exhibited this when tasted side by side.
Nose: bread & cherries
Palate: sharp at first. Butter and caramel.
Finish: smooths out. Buttery and shortbread. Long and enjoyable aftertaste.
I've had the entire Redbreast line, the 15 and 12 CS being my favorites. This one, however, is so complex that I almost have no words to describe how amazing it is. Is it pricey...yes! Is it worth the splurge if you have the cash...yes! The time spent in ex-bourbon and sherry casks come through with the vanilla, oak spice, nuttiness and tons of fruit character. Dark, tropical, fleshy...it's all there. Word to the wise, let it sit for at least 15 to 20 minutes before enjoying a dram.
10/10! In all honesty, I haven’t tasted anything better. This is my gold standard that I will use to rate and judge everything else. Unbelievably smooth. Notes of sweet and fruity throughout the front, a touch of woody/earthiness to the finish, just perfect.
This is the absolute best whisky I have ever tasted!! The only reason I didn’t give it 10 stars is because it has a slight kinda bitter/spicy hit for just a brief moment when you swallow it. But the nosing, initial drink and aftertaste are amazing!! Nice vanilla and caramel. Outstanding bottle!
I have not tasted a better whiskey. If you are looking for my lane...this is it!
Don't get me wrong...if there is a better whiskey...please let me know!
My favourite whiskey, hands down. Fragrant, spicy, thick, syrupy, caramely and tropical. It coats your mouth and you'll still taste it minutes later.
Smooth.... great with one ice cube
Absolutely one of my top two of all time
Absolutely my favorite, hands down. I picked it up blindly in Ireland because a women told that if I picked this bottle up I’d make my wife a whisky drinker without fail. It worked and she now drinks it Neat with me on occasions. Thank you Redbrest!
Very smooth with nice finish. My top of the list whiskey.
I get notes of caramel and hickory with a very smooth smokey mouthfeel.
Tastes like cherry and caramel.
Fantastic whiskey. So smooth.
Great Irish whiskey. Like Jameson but fruitier and smoother.
Perfect whiskey, nothing I would add or take away.
Outstanding whiskey my farovite by far, great buttery finish can’t say enough
It’s extremely smooth tasting, with a buttery finish I would highly recommend for everyone’s Home Bar
The gold standard. I pull this bottle out when a snobby friend tries to discuss the inferiority of Whiskey to Whisky. No superlative is too big, too extreme, or inappropriate. Not often you would call an Irish whiskey over $250 a bargain, but this is. That said, the 12 and 15 yr old are all of a similar (though clearly not as high) quality and may be good stepping stones before reaching this, the pinnacle of Irish mass production whiskey.
Mellow. Deep flavor. My favorite right now.
Wow! Just wow! Worth ever cent
I received a sample of this through an Easter Egg order and it is fantastic. My wife does not like Whiskey of any kind. Period. She likes this. It is such a smooth drink. I have not tried the 15 year, so I may do that first before I plunk down the money for a bottle of this.
I expected more. Don’t get me wrong it’s a delicious whiskey but I’m not sure it’s worth the price.
Elegant is the word that comes to mind. A smooth, flavorful Irish whiskey. I first tasted this at WhiskeyFest in Chicago and my drinking buddy and I both agreed it was among the to three we sampled that night. If you can’t afford the 21 year old, the 15 year old is a real value.
I love the Irish Whiskeys because they distill the peat out of them. This one is smoooooooth and tasty. No brainer to have this one as a part of your bar!
Amazingly smooth. I experienced this phenomenal whiskey while attending The Whiskey Extravaganza in Boston. I am greatful that friends pointed out this expression.
An absolutely amazing whisky. Definitely worth the price once you have a taste. I treated myself to this after having the 12 and 15 year old versions and it is worth the extra cost.
Incredibly smooth with no bite. Almost "too" drinkable!
Smooth fruity and sweet
Outstanding! Tropical, smooth and addictive. A must have for any collection.
My absolute favorite.
Redbreast is singlehandedly the best whiskey around.
I want to order it, but do not see it on the site anywhere
