A limited-edition single pot still Irish whiskey hand-selected by Master Blender, Billy Leighton, as his favourite 'Dream Cask' Redbreast whiskey. Originally unveiled as part of a Facebook Live whiskey tasting event in 2017, its popularity led to it being released for purchase a year later. Distilled 31 October 1985, matured for 26 years in refill American oak ex-bourbon barrels and then on 8 March 2011 the whiskey was re-casked into a first-fill Oloroso sherry butt for an extended finishing period. Encased in a deluxe gift box set with two branded tumblers and a badge. Only 816 bottles were produced. Non-chillfiltered and bottled at 46.5%. (Bottle size 500ml)
Nose: Combination of fruit, herbs and spices. Notes of orange peel and blackcurrant that move to deeper richer notes including dark chocolate and bitter almond with a heavy oak influence in the background.
Palate: Mixed fruit tones within the typical style of Irish single pot still whiskey. Light touch of menthol to liquorice. Exotic fruits alongside spices, herbs and Spanish toasted oak.
Finish: An extremely balanced finish that slowly fades.
