Redbreast 12-Year, Cask Strength, Irish Whiskey (Ireland) 750ML
Producer Notes: This cask strength expression gives a glimpse of Redbreast 12 in its natural, full flavoured taste.
Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and then triple distilled in copper pot stills, Redbreast 12 boasts the flavour 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 flavoured 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.
Whisky Advocate, 94 Points: Golden sultana, fragrant spice, dried orange slices, star anise, baked apricot, and hints of flaked chocolate bar. Spices leap from a butterscotch and red berry base, vociferously showing clove, star anise, and ginger root, which part to welcome flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla pod, oak, and juicy nectarine. The cask strength is rarely less than spectacular, but this batch is singularly distinctive. Editor's Choice
