Redbreast 12 Yo Cask Strength Single Pot Still

Redbreast 12 Yo Cask Strength Single Pot Still

€115.95
 
The award winning Redbreast Cask Strength 12 Year Old. The Cask Strength has perhaps been one of the most favourably received and won 'Irish Whiskey of the Year' in the 2013 Irish Whiskey Awards. Most of the maturation is done in sherry casks but with careful selection so that the sherry character does not overpower the whiskey. The pot still content really shines through which explains why it has been winning so many awards.

Description

The award winning Redbreast Cask Strength 12 Year Old. The Cask Strength has perhaps been one of the most favourably received and won 'Irish Whiskey of the Year' in the 2013 Irish Whiskey Awards. Most of the maturation is done in sherry casks but with careful selection so that the sherry character does not overpower the whiskey. The pot still content really shines through which explains why it has been winning so many awards. On the nose; Pronounced aromas of bread, marzipan, vanilla, apricot and citrus with less obvious Sherry cask influence than the standard 12 Year Old. The palate is Forceful, fresh and crisp but with a rich mouthfeel. Almost like an unpeated Scottish coastal malt in character. Tropical fruits, exotic spice and vanilla flavours. Very complex. Becomes spicier with time. Great length, less sherry influence than the standard bottling and a little rougher round the edges, but this is made up by the gloriously complex character.

Daniel's Recommendation

It may pack a punch at 55% abv but it's worth it for the texture and flavour that you get from this tremendous Irish Pot Still. I was blown away.
