The 27 Year Old Premium Irish Whiskey
The Redbreast 27 Year Old Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey 54.6% ABV 700ml, looking resplendent in a beautiful wooden gift box.
A Redbreast family member that is now the oldest permanent part of the range. This is a complex whiskey, loaded with flavours of exotic rich fruits, sweet treacle, pantry spices and mature oak influence. We love the 21 Year Old here at DC, but this is next level. A "Bucket List" Irish Whiskey.
This expression has been matured in both bourbon and sherry casks as well as including ruby port casks for the first time to bring even more complexity and depth.
A succulent medley of exotic fruits, mango, pineapple, blood orange and ripe red berries are complemented by fresh herbs, aromatic oils and wood spices. Vanilla sweetness and treacle toffee add to the richness, while walnuts and toasted oak acknowledge the contribution from a supreme cask selection.
Incredibly rich in texture with a luxuriously fruity introduction. Ripe red fleshed plums, black cherries and summer berries are balanced by the prickle of a hint of chili oil. The taste evolves as cherry menthol introduces vanilla and cinnamon sweet spices combined with red pepper, nutmeg and toasted oak for an intriguing complexity.
A satisfyingly long balance of ripe fruit and wood spices, worthy of a journey of nearly three decades.
