Tasting and Review by Daniel & Rex in the Whisk(e)y Vault
A new expression in the Redbreast range, introduced in the latter half of 2016. This single pot still Irish whiskey was initially matured in a combination of American and European oak casks for 9 to 12 years, before being transferred over to first fill Oloroso Sherry casks from Bodegas Lustau for a year.
Nose has dark fruits, prunes, dates figs, toasted oak and spice
On the palate it is well balanced with fresh sherry and redbreast spices
Creamy pot still with redbreast spices balanced
Finish is sweet and spicy with sherry notes and Spanish oak
Matured nine to twelve years in old bourbon and sherry oloroso casks
