Made from a mash of malted and un-malted barley and then triple distilled in copper pot stills, Redbreast 12 boasts the flavor complexity and distinctive qualities of Pot Still whiskey. Matured in a combination of Bourbon seasoned American Oak barrels and Oloroso Sherry seasoned Spanish oak butts, the distinctive Redbreast sherry style is a joy to behold in each and every bottle. The Cask Strength expression gives a glimpse of Redbreast 12 in its natural, full flavored taste.

Nose :
Succulent exotic fruit with a little citrus, complementing deeper notes of dried apricot and sultana. Infusion of assorted spices and toasted wood. 

Taste :
Rich, fully rounded and mellow with luscious fruit and spices. Sweetness of vanilla and a touch of oak. 

Finish :
Satisfyingly long with the sophisticated combination of fruit and spices slowly giving way to toasted oak, then barley.

Straight up, this cask-strength whiskey is crazy hot, almost too hot to drink. But it shines as a base for mixed drinks, as its honeyed Sherry scent and mix of malty apple and faintly smoky flavors stand up to significant dilution. For straight-up sipping, seek out the excellent-and 80 proof-Redbreast 12 year old.
