Redbreast 21 Year Old is the oldest, and certainly finest, expression of the Redbreast line. It is considered by many to be the definitive single pot still whiskey. An attractive light golden colour. A superbly complex aroma, multitudes of fruity sweet notes; tropical mango and pineapple, some green orchard fruit and underlying dried fruit. A little honey, vanilla and wood spices, even a touch of fresh menthol. Rich and very full on the palate. Fruity notes persist to taste, but richer and darker, more plums and prunes. The influence of the wood makes itself known a little more here than in the nose, with some peppery oak spices. An outstandingly long finish, the sweet and spicy notes persisting long after the glass is finished. A whiskey to be enjoyed slowly, contemplating the deep and mesmerising complexities.
