Tasting Notes

The whiskey greets the eye with a deep, amber hue—a visual testament to its well-aged character and Sherry cask influence.

The olfactory experience is nothing short of opulent. It starts with a rich, aromatic tapestry of dark fruits like figs and raisins, complemented by waves of creamy vanilla. A backdrop of toasted oak and mild spices adds a layer of complexity, rounding off the nose.

Taking a sip is akin to opening Pandora's box of flavors. Immediate notes of dried fruit and nuts manifest, a Sherry cask legacy, interspersed with subtler notes of caramel, honey, and butterscotch. The higher ABV lends a powerful mouthfeel, delivering a burst of peppery spice and clove that invigorates the senses. Despite its intensity, the texture remains remarkably smooth, attesting to its superior quality.

The finish is enduring and nuanced. As the palate flavors recede, they leave behind a warm, oaky resonance accented by a touch of lingering fruitiness. A soft whisper of spice remains, tantalizingly encouraging another sip.

Pairing Suggestions

Redbreast 12 Year Cask Strength Edition is a whiskey best experienced with due reverence. It pairs eloquently with rich, creamy cheeses, or dark chocolates that can stand up to its bold, robust flavor profile.

This is a keeper

I bought this for my husband on his birthday and it was an absolute hit. He loves this whiskey and intends to make it a staple in his liquor cabinet. He doesn't care about the cost. He cares about the taste, the nose, the finish, the overall quality. And this whiskey checks all his boxes. Five brilliant stars. \o/

Certainly sweet but loaded with complexity and power

Easily worth a one-time bottle purchase, probably worth repeats as well, even at the price. Big fruity caramel nose, not sharp or cloying but far enough to the sweet side that it won't suit every mood. Starts fruity, caramelly sweet, and stays that way, though with growing dessert spices and alcohol warmth. Continually interesting. Long warm sweet finish.
