Redbreast 15 year old....$64.99

Hot tip: Redbreast 15 yr. old
John Hansell, Whisky Experter

I feel that it’s my obligation to let you know when I find out about a great whiskey that’s not in the mainstream and will become increasingly more difficult to find. Redbreast 15 year old is one of those whiskeys.
Most Irish whiskey drinkers probably already know about Redbreast 12 year old pure pot still whiskey. It’s the only pure pot still whiskey (whiskey made from both malted and unmalted barley in pot stills) brand that is still on the market as a regular stock item throughout the world. (Sure there’s Green Spot, but it’s available in extremely limited quantities and not sold in the U.S.) Redbreast 12 year old is, in its own right, is a fantastic whiskey and not always easy to find.

So, if you love Irish whiskey, do your best to get a bottle. Even if you usually drink single malt scotch you should find a way to get a bottle, because I think you will enjoy it very much.
What we really should do is start a worldwide petition to get Irish Distillers to make Redbreast 15 year old a regular stock item, along with Redbreast 12 year old.

Runners-Up: Bushmills 21 yr. old and Jameson 18 yr. old
Comment: If Redbreast 15 yr. old was available in the U.S., it would have trumped the 12 yr. old
