This is a different representation of Irish Whiskey to me. I typically find Irish whiskey to be boring, not bad, just boring. This is not that.
Redbreast 12 Cask Strength is not only aged for 12 years, and is bottled at 58.2% abv (most Irish comes in at 40%) but it's also aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-oloroso sherry casks.
The sherry gives this whiskey a beautiful color. Even at the high proof, the sweetness and complexity is what really shines.
We reviewed it recently which you can watch in the video below:
These bottles are a must have for sharing whiskey with friends (Or your favorite whiskey blogger)
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
