First released in 2011, Redbreast Cask Strength is produced in small batches, and although it is an ongoing expression, its limited nature means it can be very hard to find. This particular expression is batch B1/20. Matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and first fill Oloroso sherry casks. Bottled at a cask strength of 56.3%.
Nose: Succulent exotic fruit with a little citrus, complementing deeper notes of dried apricot and sultana. Infusion of assorted spices and toasted wood.
Palate: Rich, fully rounded and mellow with luscious fruit and spices. Sweetness of vanilla and a touch of oak.
Finish: Satisfyingly long with the sophisticated combination of fruit and spices slowly giving way to toasted oak, then barley.
