The Lustau edition from Redbreast highlights the use of sherry casks on the Irish spirit. This was finished in first-fill oloroso-sherry butts for a year, resulting in a creamy whisky with notes of liquorice, marzipan and dark fruits.Tasting Notes (1)
- Liquorice root
First-fill Sherry Finish
Producer's Tasting Notes
Rich infusion of dark fruits, prunes, dates and figs with liquorice, marzipan, toasted oak and Redbreast spices.
Creamy pot still with Redbreast spices balanced with richness of sherry finish and contribution of fresh Spanish oak.
Endless. Sweetness and pot-still spices endure while oloroso sherry and Spanish oak have the last word.
More from Redbreast
Remember the first time you sampled Redbreast (neat - obviously)? That first encounter with one of the finest expressions of the Irish pot still whiskey tradition lives long in the memory. There's the loving, silken mouthfeel as you roll it around as if your tongue, teeth and gums have encountered the rays of the evening sun somehow miraculously transmuted into a warming, golden liquid. Then comes the flavour which starts at the front of the mouth with hints of cinder toffee, candied peel and parma violets which segues as that first mouthful is slowly swallowed into walnuts and Dutch tobacco. Then the aftermath which is redolent of a walk through an orange grove just as the fruits are landing in the basket. And the sheer lusciousness of the experience as the sunshine slides into the soul and spreads out again, bringing joy and radiance to you and your companions. Remember what drinking Redbreast is like? Well, Redbreast Lustau edition is exactly like that. Only better.
Splendid flavours and beautifully balanced at a price that's hard to beat ....my go too "Tipple" after a hard days work!
Perfectly balance of wine and the best of Irish Pot Still. Great on the nose and the long finish. If you do not like the shyour sherry, not your spot of bother. Otherwise, one of the best irish whiskeys for the price.
Great whiskey. At first, I tasted it by adding a little water. Tasted good but nothing special. Then the second time I enjoyed it neat. What a difference. 46% ABV and it's smooth, sweet and full of wonderful flavors. This robin really goes high on my list.
I am a fan of the Redbreast 12 year old, and was intrigued by this. It is not quite as smooth, but has a more complex character, and is just as easy to drink. I would buy again.
