Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2017 winners

18th October, 2016 by Nicola Carruthers

Irish Whiskey of the Year – Redbreast Aged 21 Years

Redbreast-21-Year-Old

Another regional winner in the annual book is Redbreast Aged 21 Years – made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, tripled distilled in copper pot stills and aged in a combination of first-fill oloroso Sherry casks and first-fill Bourbon casks. The whisky is described by Irish Distillers as full-bodied with notes of rich dried fruit on the nose with soft vanilla, Sherry nuttiness and fresh fruit nots in a creamy mouthfeel on the palate.

    This should have been Yamazaki sherry oak 2016 not the 2013.
