Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength Irish Whiskey
The Robin Redbreast is the only bird which sings continuously throughout the dark irish winners and is one of the very few small birds that choose to winter in Ireland. It is this enduring spirit which inspires its namesake, Redbreast Whiskey. When the world demanded lighter, more accessible whiskey styles, Redbreast stood steadfast in its belief of the tradition and significance of single pot still Irish whiskey. For the past century, Redbreast has been the standard bearer for this quintessentially Irish style of whiskey.
Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and then triple distilled in copper pot stills. Redbreast 12 displays the characteristic full and complex flavour of pot still whiskey, with the distinctive influence of pot still whiskey, which has been matured in sherry casks. The legendary sherried Redbreast style is a joy to behold in each and every bottle. This very special cask strength expression gives a rare glimpse of Redbreast 12 in its natural, full flavoured state.
Aroma - Succulent exotic fruit with a little citrus, complementing deeper notes of dried apricot and sultana. Infusion of pot still spices and toasted wood.
Taste - Rich, fully rounded and mellow with luscious fruit and typical pot still oils 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 barely.
