Redbreast Pot Still Irish Whisky 21 Year Old
The Robin Redbreast is the only bird which sings continuously throughout the dark Irish winters and is one of the very few small birds that choose to winter in Ireland. It is this enduring spirits 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.
Redbreast is a single pot still Irish Whiskey which is regarded by many as the definitive expression of this quintessentially Irish style of whiskey. It is made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, triple distilled in copper pot stills, and, finally, matured in a combination of first fill American Bourbon barrels and first fill Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks. Redbreast Pot Still Irish Whisky 21 Year Old is the finest representation of the signature Redbreast sherry style - it is the oldest and richest expression of the Redbreast style they have ever produced; and the 21 year ageing process introduces new levels of depth, flavour and taste to create an inherently complex and ultimately, rewarding whiskey. Abundantly aromatic and fruitful, and produced in very limited quantities, this 21 year old Redbreast is a joy to behold in each and every bottle.
Nose - Remarkable aroma spanning fresh tropical fruits, nuts and rich dried fruit.
Taste- Soft vanilla, toasted oak, sherry nuttiness with a dusting of pot still spices. Luscious fleshy fruit notes complete the creamy mouthfeel.
Finish - Lingers, seemingly forever, to oak and pot still spices and then, the final bow from barley where it all began.
