Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength

Product description
Redbreast 12-Year Old Cask Strength Irish Whiskey is one of only a few cask strength Irish Whiskeys out there today, a far cry from the Scotch world. It may have something to do with the fact that Redbreast is owned by Irish Distillers, the company that also owns Jameson, Midleton, and Powers, making it by far the largest and most influential Irish whiskey producer. Redbreast 12-Year-Old Cask Strength Edition isn't simply the excellent Redbreast 12-Year-Old bottled at a higher ABV, the whiskeys used for each batch are specially selected for these superb natural cask strength releases. A must-try.

Redbreast 12 takes off with a medium to dark orange, apple, date, and prune fruitiness rounded out by honey, vanilla, toasted oak, fresh grassiness, cinnamon, and licorice. Because of the fairly prominent caramel, toasted oak, and cinnamon notes, this smells more like a fruitier bourbon than a single malt whiskey. There is some alcohol kick, but it’s not noteworthy. Swirling wafts more caramel and citrus first, followed by vanilla, apple, date, and berry then fragrant toasted oak, cinnamon, and hay. It’s an interesting dance of bright and dark sweetness between apple, date, and berry. The scents generally have a nice roundness, richness, and definition between fruit, oak, and spice that are wonderful to smell.
