Review #59. Redbreast Cask Strength

Review #59 | /r/WorldWhisky Review #6 – Redbreast Cask Strength

The Schtick: This is a cask strength release of Redbreast distillate, which is a pot still Irish single malt product.


Distiller: Redbreast

Bottler: Redbreast

ABV: 58.6% ABV

Age: 12 Years

Source: Sample


Nose: This might sound weird but bread. Sweet, yeasty, caramel-y bread notes. There’s some vanilla as well but not nearly as prominent as the bread notes. Pretty inviting.

Taste: Malty sweetness, some light floral fruit, some more caramel and vanilla but all subdued. For the proof it’s very welcoming and there isn’t much ethanol bite.

Finish: Long, mildly hot but gentle overall. More honey and yeasty malt with some more light floral fruit on the way out. Kind of like spiced pears.

Overall: For a subset whisky I really haven’t tried a while lot of, this was a great re-introduction. Delicious, high proof and really just solid all around.

Thanks for reading!
