Redbreast 21 Year Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
Today, Redbreast 21 Year Old Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey continues to pay homage to the legacy of Gilbey and its Irish origins. The whiskey is crafted from a marriage of malted and unmalted barley, which are milled and mashed before being triple-distilled through traditional copper-pot stills. The inclusions of unmalted barley in the whiskey's mashbill, along with the tradition of triple distillation, are uniquely Irish approaches to producing whiskey.
Following distillation, the whiskey is matured in a combination of American oak casks that were previously used to mature bourbon and European oak casks that were previously used to mature Spanish Oloroso sherry. After a 21-year slumber, the whiskey is bottled without the use of chill filtration.
Tasting NotesNose: Remarkable aroma spanning fresh tropical fruits, nuts and rich dried fruit.
Palate: Soft vanilla, toasted oak, sherry nuttiness with a dusting of Pot Still spices. Luscious fleshy fruit notes complete the creamy mouthfeel.
Finish: Lingers, seemingly forever, to oak and Pot Still spices and then, the final bow from barley - where it all began.
