Redbreast Tawny Port

Mellow, Sweet Fruity
We've had Irish whiskeys with the iconic robin logo in our glasses time and time again in the past. And the Redbreast releases from the Middleton distillery have consistently won us over. As part of the Iberian Series, we now have the Redbreast Tawny Port, following a well-established recipe. This Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey aged in Bourbon and Oloroso casks, followed by a final 14-25 month finishing period in Tawny Port Hogsheads. The end product, however, is bottled without specifying its age.

On smelling the Redbreast Tawny Port, a mild symphony of cereal aromas unfolds, accompanied by a hint of plastic cherry lollipops that evoke sweet memories. A harmonious mix of caramel, vanilla and oak adds a complex depth. The freshness and softness add a gentle, refreshing dimension to the bouquet. A balanced whiskey that appeals to the senses with its mildness and multi-layered sweetness.


When tasting the whiskey, one first experiences a tingling caramel, followed by a subtle fruitiness that refreshes the palate. The malt gives it a pleasant depth, while the honey adds a sweet, enticing note. The texture is creamy and adds a velvety smoothness to the enjoyment. Overall, this Redbreast presents itself light yet full of flavour nuances.


The finish of the Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is medium long and leaves a subtle but bitter-rich finish on the palate.


This Redbreast shines with the classic profile we've come to know from other releases. The Port finish adds a new, fruity dimension. However, it's worth noting that the overall picture is not as finely tuned and refined as we've come to expect from the 12 or 15-year-old cousins. Whether this justifies the high price, especially on the secondary market, is something that each individual will have to decide for themselves.

Rating: 82/100 - Excellent (Marcel: 81 | Sascha: 83)
