Redbreast 27 Year Old Cask Strength Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey (700ml)
The oldest core release in the Redbreast family is composed of Pot Still whiskeys which have been triple distilled, matured in the finest bourbon, sherry and ruby port casks for no less than 27 years. Bottled at cask strength 54.6% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... This new permanent addition to the Redbreast range is partially matured in ruby port casks, which have helped the vitality and the complexity of the finished whiskey while still delivering a remarkable intensity of red berry fruit. Orange peel, pine cone, vanilla, and walnut on the nose. Raspberry, cherry, plums, and active spices like a wildfire across the tongue, with pepper and chile heightened by the strength and menthol late on the finish.
