Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Deep, biscuity aromas accompanied by notes of citrus fill the nose. Toasted oak, light brown sugar and cedar join them and lead into a creamy, yet wonderfully briny mouth-feel with candied orange peel and vanilla making an appearance. An enduring, deep finish ensues.

A delightful Pure Pot Still Irish whiskey, Redbreast 12 is highly praised by Jim Murray and a host of other notable whisky critics.
The nose is nutty and rich. There are notes of dried peels and spice, an oily note and cut fruits.
The palate is spice and of good body. There are notes of nuts and citrus and the peel and juice thereof. There are hints of marzipan and dried peels and a hint of sherry.
The finish is long and creamy with custard and spice.
