In a word, elegant. In two words... darn delicious. The winner of the Flaviar Community Awards 2019 in its respective category!

Irish Distillers is a subsidiary of liquor-giant Pernod-Ricard that stubbornly adhere to their time-tested methods and practices for making the world’s most popular Irish Whiskies and they don’t give a fig-leaf what those crazy Frenchmen think about the matter. Irish Distillers makes the famous Jameson, Powers, Paddy, Redbreast, Green Spot, and Midleton Very Rare Whiskies along with Huzzar Vodka and Cork Dry Gin. The Good men at Redbreast set themselves apart by being one of the very few remaining Single Pot Still Whiskies and provide four variants ranging from 12 to 21 years old — all of them are top-notch.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again — Redbreast is known for quality. In fact, their Whiskeys have even been called “masterpieces.” Redbreast Lustau Edition gets it name from a special partnership with the famous Lustau Bodgea in Cádiz, Spain. This elegant Irish Whiskey starts like all core Redbreast Whiskies with a blend of spirits aged from none to twelve years in both ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks. The married spirits are then aged an additional full year in first-fill Bodegas Lustau casks. This exceptional combination yields a Whiskey flavor explosion you will not soon forget.

Smartass Corner:
Only a handful of Irish Whiskeys still use the Single Pot Still process. Oddly, the term has nothing to do with the still itself. Rather, it means using a combination of both malted and un-malted barley in the mash. And where a Single Malt Whisky is usually distilled twice, Single Pot Still Whiskey is usually distilled three times.

Craig
Craig,
As part of our latest tasting box, smoother than the Locke's and without the smokiness (which my wife liked better, but I prefer the smokey aspect). Still has the bite of an irish whiskey but not such a bad thing. Great flavor and complexity.
 
Darin
Darin,
Amazing flavor and complexity.
 
Jason
Jason,
Smooth and caramel.

The best.

Great Irish whiskey
 
John
John,
Has a bit of a bite in the finish... personally I prefer the 12 year old bottle of Redbreast, but this is a fine addition to my home bar.
 
Matt
Matt,
Possibly my favorite whiskey at the moment, both smooth and delectable.

Hit the spot for me
 
Harrison
Harrison,
Pretty underwhelmed by this one. It definitely has a sherry flavor followed by cinnamon. I think I would just forget what I’m drinking if someone asked.

Smooth simple. Oily. Easy going. Rich in flavours
 
David
David,
This was a lovely surprise. Easy drinking at 80 proof.
 
Jason
Jason,
Without water this is one dimensional smelling and tasting like a multi grain wood fired bread, add water and the caramel apple pastry comes out. Not really complex and for the price this is average. Will add there is an initial spicy note and it does have a decent finish.
 
Vincent
Vincent,
Fairly simple, but very smooth. has a good frutiness and maltiness to it. the maltiness really shines through after you open it up a bit
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Tasty and creamy. Lots of flavor for an Irish whiskey.

Very good, smooth... great representation of the upper end Irish Whisky
 
Stefanie
Stefanie,
Just sweet enough. Definitely good for savoring due to its richer finish.
 
Lee

It’s an Irish whiskey...
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
My favorite flavor from the Irish sampler. A smooth start with a lot of sherry in the middle and a nice fruity finish. Would recommend, but for the price I would shop more.
 
Angela
Angela,
Standard whiskey. Nothing special at all to justify the price
 
Bradley
Bradley,
Easily tied for the best Irish Whiskey I’ve had. Rich dark fruit and a touch of spice with the buttery shortbread cookie that redbreast is known for. Amazing!
 
Thomas
Thomas,
My favorite so far
 
Seth
Seth,
The flavor spiral is right on. Smooth, not much peat, very buttery. Goes down easy, and a bit too quickly. Definitely worth having a bottle on hand. One of the best whiskeys I’ve tried.

Leif-Johan,
I've always had a sweet spot for Irish Whiskey, and this just might get the podium for it's category in my home bar. Incredibly well balanced - there is enough of everything and not too much of anything. Very subtle taste, had a hard time pinpointing specific flavors except sweet caramel. Finish could be longer. Like driving a sports car at low speed - you know it could be a lot more flashy but then you wouldn't have time to enjoy the view
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Honestly, this is my new favorite whiskey. Sweet, spicy ,and mixed fruit that are not too strong It has a great mix of flavors and complexity, and a lasting sherry/fig note to savor to the end!
 
Michael
Michael,
Interesting. I don't know what it is. There's a little bit of sweetness, a little bit of spice and some flavors that I'm not familiar with. And lot's of them. Not my favorite Irish Whiskey... but it could be. I'll need more
 
James
James,
Much in the way of citrus, with a tad of sweetness and spice to finish it off. Nicely done.
 
Grant
Grant,
Very smooth.
 
Robert
Robert,
Wow. This was bland. Can’t believe how hyped it is for the flavor. Won’t be trying this one again....
 
Michael

Great whiskey just a bit more special
 
Brett
Brett,
Smooth and sweet. Wasn’t sure I’d like it but was impressed. Nice nose on it and a great finish
 
Israel
Israel,
I think I'm just not that well at appreciating Irish Whiskeys. The palate was very creamy and fruity. However, it didn't sit well on the tongue. I'm sure others would like it but this didn't work well for my taste.
 
Sabrina
Sabrina,
Elusive to describe for relative newbies but very good.
 
Mike
Mike,
Tasted side by side with Redbreast 12, which was not the best decision. Less aromatic and flavorful than the 12, although the heat of the ABV difference and a bit of pepper on the palate does redeem it some.
 
Jack
Jack,
Really good Irish whiskey
 
Craig
Craig,
Very smooth.
 
Wayne

Amazing
 
Travis
Travis,
Delicious from the start, I have tried redbreast 12 & 15 ( not the 21 because Flaviar shipping is shit) and I enjoyed it more then both of those , it is smooth and tasty
 
Brian
Brian,
Wow. Nuff sed.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, rich, Single Malt Irish Whiskey with a woody birth; while a creamy life; leads to a long death.

Micah,
Best thing that comes from Ireland! Hands Down! It’s amazing!

Ryan,
Great sherry pop and goes down smooth. Incredible value as well.

One of my favorites
 
Parviz
Parviz,
Nice smooth with a butterscotch finish. Told all my friends about this one
 
Richard
Richard,
A more savory Irish than usual. It may not seem to make sense, but the word that comes to mind is "creamy". The front is sweet, like your typical single pot still, but that gives way to this buttery smooth middle. There's a nice spice on the back.
 
Richard
Richard,
Starts off with the classic Irish nose: sweet and smooth. Taste is standard shortbread but with a rich undercurrent, almost buttery. The back end has a mild spice and heat, but not a ton of bite. This is very easy to drink neat, very enjoyable.
 
Rolf
Rolf,
My new favorite, works on every occasion and events, even sipping a tuesday evening! :-)
 
Perry
Perry,
a favorite in the Irish category. Lots of flavor and a bit spicy.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
One of, if not the best, irish whiskey I’ve ever had. I once got to try an old Midleton that came close to beating it but so far I think this is it. New fave will definitely buy again. I usually try to savor a good bottle and make it last but I couldn’t keep away from this one!
 
Jim
Jim,
Had a nice tasted that lingered. Nice sipping good for Irish coffee
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Egg! Learned a lot about these beverages while looking. Thanks for that.
 
Andreas
Andreas,
simply a fantastic whiskey!
 
guest
guest,
Massive mouthful, big flavour and oily with a long finish. The additional sherry finish can definitely be nosed and tasted
 
Brian
Brian,
This is a great bottle! Love the finish.
 
Jimi
Jimi,
The sherry finish is a nice touch. Take your time with this one. Gets better with each sip.
 
Lorenzo
Lorenzo,
Semi-sweet, with a spicy lasting finish. This dram has a powerful kick, which could stem from the Spanish oak it's finished in. I enjoyed this will a little water to open it up. Nice, but Redbreast 21 still my overall fav from this distiller.
