Characterized for their complex flavors and full, creamy mouthfeel, Pot Still Irish Whiskey is created from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, which is then triple distilled in traditional copper pot stills. The inclusion of unmalted barley into the mashbill, along with the tradition of triple distillation, is a uniquely Irish approach to whiskey production. Single Pot Still Whiskey, originating from a single distillery, was once the most sought after whiskey style in the world, but its popularity decreased during the hard economic times of the early 20th century. However, in recent years this style of whiskey has been revived, due to renewed interest from whiskey writers and enthusiasts alike, giving rise to demand for new expressions.
Redbreast Cask Strength is created to the same specifications as the standard Redbreast 12 Year Old, but is bottled straight from the cask, without the addition of water and without the use of chill filtering. The sherry cask aging is more apparent on the nose, with delicate aromas of fig, banana, red apple and lime, accented by notes of vanilla and pine. The palate offers more depth than the nose suggests, with rich, weighty notes of dried fruit, honey, ginger, toffee and baking spice carrying through to the exceedingly long finish.
