Redbreast 12 Year Cask Strength Irish Whiskey is one of only a few cask strength Irish Whiskeys out there today, a far cry from the Scotch world. I wouldn’t be surprised if it has a little something to do with the fact that Redbreast is owned by Irish Distillers, the company that also owns Jameson, Midleton, and Powers, making it by far the largest and most influential Irish whiskey producer. Doing a little digging, turns this company also produces Green/Yellow/Red/Blue Spot for another company. But I digress.
In this review, I’m exploring Redbreast 12 Cask Strength Batch B2/19, probably the second batch from 2019. Like prior releases, this is a blend of ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry-aged whiskeys. Let’s dip our senses into this Irish Whiskey in this Redbreast 12 Cask Strength review.
