Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength – Batch B2/19
The second batch of Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength released in 2019, this single pot still whiskey has been matured in a combination of ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks. The nose holds aromas of marzipan, freshly-baked bread, vanilla, apricot and citrus, alongside hints of soft dried fruits. The palate offers notes of tropical fruit, exotic spices, vanilla, sea salt, raisins and sultanas.
Nose: Sherried peels, candied ginger, a slice of fruitcake and a rum toddy.
Palate: Oily malt with layers of chocolate, sherry and strawberry jam. Punchy cinnamon and more ginger.
Finish: Tangy pineapple and mango, paired with stewed plums.
