Redbreast 12 Year Cask Strength
Redbreast 12 Year Cask Strength Details
Distillery: Redbreast / Midleton
Type & Region: Irish Whiskey, Republic of Ireland
Composition: 100% barley, malted and unmalted
Aged: 12 years in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry barrels

From the Redbreast website:“Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and then triple distilled in copper pot stills, Redbreast 12 boasts the flavour complexity and distinctive qualities of Pot Still whiskey. Matured in a combination of Bourbon seasoned American Oak barrels and Oloroso Sherry seasoned Spanish oak butts, the distinctive Redbreast sherry style is a joy to behold in each and every bottle. The Cask Strength expression gives a glimpse of Redbreast 12 in its natural, full flavoured taste.”

Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
