All about making whisky
“La Robustesse” Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength is the cask strength version of the famous Irish Single Pot Still Redbreast 12 Year Old. Matured in oloroso sherry casks and bottled without chill filtration, its full power is unleashed with bold aromas of red fruit, malted barley and spices.
Style: Rich and fruity. Nose: Rich. Numerous fruits (banana, fig, grape, apple) and spices. Palate: Expressive. Dried fruit, citrus fruits and vanilla sweetness. Finish: Long and rich (spices, fruit, barley).
Redbreast is one of the top Single Pot Still Irish Whiskeys. Each of its bottles is the expression of a perfect mastery of a centuries-old procedure. Produced exclusively at the Midleton distillery, this Irish whiskey respects the three fundamental principles of production: a must created from malted and unmalted barley; triple distillation in copper pot stills; and maturation in first-fill ex-sherry casks and ex-bourbon casks. In 2013, its newest whisky was released, the Redbreast 21 Year Old, embodying the Redbreast style more than ever before and adding the finishing touches to a range that already includes a 12 year old, a cask strength 12 year old and a 15 year old.
The single pot still range was created by Irish Distillers to highlight a style of whiskey that is characteristic of Ireland. The pure pot still recalls the ancestral traditions that are the foundation of Irish whiskey’s reputation: it is made from malted and non-malted barley and is always distilled three times. Since Irish Distillers’ pot still whiskies – Redbreast, Green Spot, Yellow Spot and some releases of Midleton and Powers – are all produced in the same distillery, they could be called ‘single malts’ like the whiskies that come from a single distillery in Scotland.
