A Redbreast single pot still Irish whiskey finished in first-fill oloroso sherry casks for a year.
Irish pot still whiskies are a unique classification to the country whereby both malted and unmalted grains are added into the mash. The practise comes from the historical practise of avoiding high taxes placed on malted barley and results in rich, spicy, resinous whiskies.
The sherry casks serve to highlight the richness and depth of the pot still style, the deep fruits of raisins, prunes and dates building upon the inherent spiciness.
The palate is rich and spicy with the finish showcasing a sweetness and the influence of the Spanish sherry oak through nuttiness.
