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.
ABV: 58.6% ABV
Age: 12 Years
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.
