Description

The Redbreast American Oak Series Kentucky Edition is a limited-edition twist on the classic Redbreast Irish whiskey. This innovative expression takes the signature triple-distilled, pot still Irish whiskey and elevates it with a unique maturation process.

Here’s a deeper dive into what makes this Redbreast special:

  • Tasting Profile: On the nose, expect a delightful interplay of aromas. Freshly cut cedarwood mingles with sweet almond and vanilla, while hints of dark berries peek through. The influence of the new American oak is evident in subtle char notes. The taste takes a spicier turn with cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove dancing on the palate. Rich tannins from the oak are balanced by lingering fruit, brown sugar toffee, and a touch of vanilla. The finish is long and satisfying, with the fruits fading first to leave the pot still spices and the sweet, toasty character of the American oak lingering on the tongue.
  • Higher Proof: This Kentucky Edition bottling is bottled at a higher ABV (50.5% or 101 proof) compared to standard Redbreast expressions. This extra kick delivers a more intense and flavorful experience, showcasing the full potential of the whiskey.
  • Collectable & Non-Chill Filtered:  As a limited edition, the Redbreast American Oak Series Kentucky Edition is a great choice for collectors and those who appreciate unique flavor profiles. Additionally, the whiskey is non-chill filtered, ensuring all the natural flavors and textures remain intact for a richer drinking experience.
