7 Feb 13 – Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey

‘Redbreast’ is a single pot still Irish whiskey – a style of whiskey which is unique to Ireland in general and to the Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork, in particular. Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, which is then triple distilled in traditional copper pot stills, Pot Still Irish Whiskeys are characterised by full, complex flavours and a wonderful, creamy mouthfeel. It has a spicey nose with some pepper and additional notes of fruit were mentioned by members. Tasters mentioned a palate of vanilla, fruit, and some toffee and all enjoyed the long, spicy, oily finish.
