“The Dream Cask was selected because, for me, it has something close to the perfect infusion of pot still, Spanish oak and sherry flavours. With Redbreast, balance is normally achieved by mixing a batch of casks – but this extra special cask struck that balance on its own.” – Billy Leighton, Master Blender
Spawning from the “dream cask” Leighton was asked to choose for World Whiskey Day 2017, the annual release is now one of the most sought after in Irish whiskey. The original date of bonding goes back to October 31st, 1985, with the waxy Single Pot Still originally making it’s home in American Oak ex-Bourbon barrels. Some 26 years later, on March 8th 2011, the whiskey was re-racked into a 1st fill Oloroso Sherry-seasoned butt for a further 7 years.
Bottled at cask strength, non-chill filtered. As of 2021 this is the oldest statement ever released under the Redbreast Range. Complete with original box and accompanying branded tumblers.
Nose: Combination of fruit, herbs and spices. Notes of orange peel and blackcurrant that move to deeper richer notes including dark chocolate and bitter almond with a heavy oak influence in the background
Taste: Mixed fruit tones within the typical style of Irish single pot still whiskey. Light touch of menthol to liquorice. Exotic fruits alongside spices, herbs and Spanish toasted oak
Finish: The balance of fruit, oak and barley is slow to fade
