Toffee – Hazelnut – Quince
Redbreast 12 yo is one of very few aged pure pot still whiskies. It was first launched in 1939 as a pot still whiskey supplied by Jameson to whiskey bonders before bottling at the distillery became the norm in 1968. Thus Redbreast all but disappeared until its re-launch by the distillery in the 1990s as a single pot still whiskey. Matured for a minimum of 12 years in a combination of Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks and American oak ex-Bourbon barrels. Like all good pot still whiskeys, it is complex and assertive, making it a rare treat for the connoisseur of fine old whiskey and very different to the rest of the Midleton distillery portfolio. Bottled at 40% ABV.
