REDBREAST 21 ans 2000 First Fill Sherry Butt Antipodes


For its return to the creation catalogue after a year of absence, this Irish distillery Midleton brings us a truly remarkable bottling that echoes the exceptional Redbreast 25 year old distilled in 1991 and also matured in sherry casks, bottled in 2016 to mark the 60th anniversary of La Maison du Whisky. With a natural feel and simplicity typical of many great whiskeys, this expression offers us alternating floral, fruity, spicy and tertiary sequences that are each more stunning than the next. The palette of flavours and aromas is astoundingly mature, pure and noble.

Tasting Notes

: Orangey copper with glints of mahogany.

Nose : Full-bodied, deep. With rare concentration, the first nose wavers elegantly between aromas of mushroom (truffle, porcini), noble spices (cardamom), apricot coulis, roasted mango, grilled walnut, cocoa powder, dark chocolate and spice bread. The complexity is incredible! Allowed to breathe, the aroma palette reveals a remarkably pure expression of leather, incense, quince jelly and wild strawberry.

Palate : Exhilarating. The divinely rancio attack (brandied cherries, very ripe mango) is also particularly fleshy and dense. The extremely well-balanced mid-palate reveals particularly moving notes of vanilla pod, toffee, pomegranate and lime blossom honey. The end of the palate takes us into very subtle floral registers (geranium, dahlia, carnation, peony).

Finish : Long, full. With its taffeta or white peach texture, the start of the finish invites us to take bite straight in. At the end of the finish, strawberry and raspberry add to the already well-assorted fruity register. On the retro-nasal olfaction, notes of toffee, forest floor and tobacco emphasize the flavour palette’s mature and tertiary character. Acting as the signature at the end of the tasting, the empty glass is intensely malty and refreshingly herbaceous.
