Redbreast Irish Whiskey 12 Year

Redbreast Irish Whiskey 12 Year

750ML      
Sku: 310086

Redbreast is a very special whiskey within the Irish Distillers fortified as itís the only 12 year old Pure Pot Still available. It was first launched in 1939 as the brand name given to the pot still whiskey supplied by Jameson to whiskey bonders before bottling at the distillery became the norm in 1968. Stocks of whiskey in bondersí stores petered out, and thus Redbreast all but disappeared until its re-launch by the distillery in the 1990s as a single pot still whiskey. This pure pot still whiskey is matured for a minimum of 12 years in sherry casks and Bourbon barrels. Like all good pot still whiskeys, it is strongly flavoured and assertive, making it a rare treat for the connoisseur of fine old whiskey.

Deep, biscuity aromas accompanied by notes of citrus fill the nose. Toasted oak, light brown sugar and cedar join them and lead into a creamy, yet wonderfully briny mouth-feel with candied orange peel and vanilla making an appearance. An enduring, deep finish ensues.
