96 points Whisky Advocate: "Best Irish Whiskey of the Year! Irish Distillers has already released two 90+ pot still whiskeys this year, but this is the knockout blow, an immense take on the wonderful Redbreast. The nose gives little away, all damp autumn leaves and fermenting forest fruit, but on the palate it's a fireworks display, a colorful mix of apple and pear, berries, vine fruits, chocolate liqueur, and oily pureed fruit. It's coming to the States soon, and rumor has it there's more to follow. But this will do. I can't think if I've ever tasted a better Irish whiskey. (Vol. 20, #4)"
95 points Wine Spectator: "This is an immersive experiential plunge into the pleasures of cask-strength single pot still whiskey. Damson plum, vanilla pod, fruitcake and rose hip collide with wild, untamed pot still spices. (10/31/19)"
