Jameson's pot still Redbreast 12 will almost stop you from drinking Scotch whiskey. It is one of the 5 best whiskeys in the world. Dont expect peated scotch, but you wont have to worry about overly bourbon sweetness. Once you get used to this school of whiskey, it may not get better! Here in Texas where scotch is expensive and few bourbons are not represented, Redbreast is a welcome surprise. I have been drinking it since it arrived about 10 years ago. I knew its legacy and was excited when it hit the selves. You see in the earlier days in america Irish whiskey was the #1 import, scotch only surpassed it in the 1970's(or somewhere around there). The irish whiskey empire almost fell, but they still had the recipes. Today Ireland is reviving their whiskey trade though carefully and Redbreast 12 is a great example of what they can do. Irish Pot Still whiskey is unique, classic and very good. Who better than to market their pot still than Jameson(though the name is not on the bottle anywhere). Irelands Power's Gold Label was originally a pot still whiskey but is a blend now and the #1 selling whiskey in Ireland. If they bring back the original Power's pot still to the market scotch will become a lost art. Only Cardhu, Glenlivet, Balvenie, Cragganmore, Highland Park, Talisker, Ardbeg, Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Bowmore, Springbank and a few others would not have to close! The powers that be wont let that happen so you probably will never see Power's Pot Still 15 on the market! But while you can get it REDBREAST 12 IS AWESOME WHISKEY! Connemara 12 is also well worth seeking out, smokey and sweet, as long as it remains a cult favorite the world can still enjoy it!
Remember CARDHU 12 is a goner, this classic was the model for the development of pot still irish whiskey and we cant have it anymore!
