Redbreast Cask Strength Edition Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey 12 year old
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.
Succulent exotic fruit with a little citrus, complementing deeper notes of dried apricot and sultana. Infusion of assorted spices and toasted wood.
Rich, fully rounded and mellow with luscious fruit and spices. Sweetness of vanilla and a touch of oak.
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.
