St. Patrick's Day, time to review some classic Single Pot Still Irish whiskey! Like a whisper of spring, the nose of Redbreast 12 features fresh vegetation, clover and heather honey. Pears, apricots and melon intermingle with cereals, green malt and hints of sherry. On the palate, there is an interesting potpourri of floral vanilla, unripe banana and lemongrass, interrupted by peppery kicks of wood spices from the casks. Lingering freshness, nuts and mildly dry citrus zest remain in the subtle finish. It's a unique style of whiskey, and you can't go wrong with it.

Nosing: Spicy, potstill nose. Very pleasant.

Taste: Oily, peppery, fruity, typical Irish but amplified due to being single pot still.

Finish: Plenty of that Irish pepper in the finish though in a good way.

Comment:
Consumed neat from a rocks glass at a restaurant.
