This is the classic Redbreast 12 with the volume cranked up to 11. The nose is warm and inviting with no burn, mild spices, apricot, plum, and nuts, and a hint of oakiness. Taste: Thick and intensely spicy with a wave of cinnamon and hint of peatiness underneath. Lemon peel, honey, and oak notes add balance. Finish: Long and smooth with a consistent and well-balanced fading of the notes from the taste. Outstanding.
