Now a permanent expression in the family having originally launched as a limited edition, Redbreast 15 Year Old is matured in a combination of Spanish Oloroso sherry casks and American Bourbon whisky barrels. Bottled at the higher ABV strength of 46%, Redbreast 15 Year Old is non chill filtered.

Review
Redbreast 15yr Irish Whiskey is a triple-distilled pot still whiskey and a celebration of Irish whiskey heritage. Its origins were in 1939 as a Jameson product issued to whiskey bonders. The 15yr is a higher-proof and non-chill filtered cousin of the 12yr version.

Rating
92 points from John Hansell at the Malt Advocate, who wrote:
Redbreast 12 year old is a classic pure pot still Irish whiskey, so where can one go from here? This new 15 year old expression is more muscular (bottling at 46% and not chill-filtered certainly helps.), but there are trade-offs. Itís a bit closed on the nose (like a great Bordeaux wine thatís too young). I do enjoy the silky/oily texture, the bold resinous oak spice grip on the finish, and the rich nutty toffee, fig, black raspberry, chocolaty, chewy nougat throughout the palate. (Imagine the 12 year old on steroids.)
