Redbreast Lustau Edition Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey 700mL
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.
Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and triple distilled in copper pot stills, Redbreast Lustau Edition displays the characteristic full and complex flavour of pot still whiskey. Having spent its final period of maturation in casks seasoned with the finest Oloroso Sherry in the Bodegas Lustau, the result is a distinctive twist on the signature sherry character.
This whisky has a rich infusion of dark fruits, prunes, dates and figs with liquorice, marzipan, toasted oak and Redbreast spices across the nose. The palate is a creamy pot still with Redbreast spices balanced with richness of sherry finish and contribution of fresh Spanish oak. The finish is endless. Sweetness and pot still spices endure while Oloroso Sherry and Spanish oak have the last word.
