Redbreast All Sherry Single Cask Review

Redbreast All Sherry Single Cask This recently released and exclusive to The Whisky Exchange single cask sherry cask Redbreast Irish Whiskey really is one I was interested in trying so really happy when this sample arrived.

This is a powerful fruity and tangy dram one that really does show how good Irish whiskey can be and at a higher strength it really shines with a thick oily and waxy mouthfeel.

The price is quite high for a but this 24/25 year old (laid down in 1991) is rare with only 186 bottles produced, and single cask Irish whiskey is difficult to get a hold of.

Only available from The Whisky Exchange

Thanks to Rebreast for the official sample.
