Første Single Cask fra Redbreast

Midleton frigiver nu den første single cask aftapning af Redbreast nogensinde.

Redbreast Single CaskAftapningen er blevet til i samarbejde med The Whisky Exchange og er lavet af sherry butt #30087. Denne sherry butt er fremstillet i 1996 hos Antonio Paez Lobato Cooperage i det sydlige Spanien og efter at have ligget med Oloroso sherry i to år er den sendt til Midleton, hvor den er blevet fyldt med new make den 2. april 1999. Derefter har den slumret i warehouse M15A i lidt over 16 år inden den blev tappet i august 2015.

Redbreast Single Cask #30087 er tappet ved en fadstyrke på 59,9% og den er naturligvis hverken koldfiltreret eller farvet. Den er destilleret tre gange af en blanding af maltet og umaltet byg. Der er i alt produceret 576 flasker.

Officielle smagsnoter fra destilleriet:

Nose: Classic single pot still spices in harmony with oloroso seasoned Spanish oak. Deep dried-fruit richness with a little mandarin orange zest blends with bitter almond, leather and toasted oak. Some nutmeg and sweet vanilla bring some balance to the exceptional complexity.

Palate: Full, round and velvety smooth. The rich single pot still spices mingle effortlessly with the abundance of succulent fruit. Soft vanilla complements the robust note of ground coffee on a firm background of Spanish oak.

Finish: Complex and sophisticated, remaining in balance as it fades.

Billy Leighton, Head Blender hos Midleton Distillery udtaler:

Redbreast Irish Whiskey holds a special place in the hearts of Irish whiskey fans, due to its full-flavoured taste profile and its iconic history as the definitive Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey. Being able to introduce the world to Redbreast Single Cask is very exciting, as it celebrates the heart of what connoisseurs love about the brand; its exceptional ex-Sherry cask contribution, our relationship with the Spanish bodegas and respect for the craftsmanship throughout the production process. Cask #30087 offers a unique tasting experience, with rich notes of dried fruit, a velvety smooth coffee and vanilla taste with a balanced finish that can never be reproduced, so I hope Irish Whiskey fans will enjoy savouring each sip of this newest addition to the Redbreast family.

De 576 flasker kan kun købes hos The Whisky Exchange og prisen er £180 per flaske.
