The Redbreast range has increased from just one 12 years old to comprise of four whiskeys including the 12, 15, 21-year-olds plus this Cask Strength edition. All of this in the space of about 6 years. The Cask Strength has perhaps been one of the most favorably 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 a careful selection so that the sherry character does not overpower the whiskey.
Nose: Big spicy fruit and oak notes, vanilla, sultanas, pear, Sherried notes and some tropical cake.
Palate: Mouthfilling, oily, satisfying. Huge. Sweet stewed fruits, lively spice and a biscuity core.
Finish: More spice, creamy caramel, malt and fruit.
