We don’t want to gush, but this one just may be perfect.
Irish Distillers stubbornly adhere to their time-tested methods and practices for making the world’s most popular Irish Whiskeys, including Jameson, Powers, Paddy, Redbreast, Green Spot, and Midleton. The Good men at Redbreast set themselves apart by being one of the very few remaining single pot still Whiskeys and provide four variants of it — all of them top-notch.
Redbreast is known for three things: quality, quality, and quality. Their Whiskeys have even been called “masterpieces.” Redbreast 12 YO Cask Strength is a proud member of this product range winning a slew of awards itself, including the coveted “Irish Whiskey of the Year.” With a resurgence in popularity, we seem to be entering a new golden age of Irish Whiskey, so there are a lot of really good ones out there right now, but Redbreast 12 YO Cask Strength just may be a 58.6% ABV single pot still dram of perfection.
Only a handful of Irish Whiskeys still use the single pot still process. Oddly, it's not about a specific type of still. Rather, it means using a combination of both malted and un-malted barley in the mash. And where a single malt Whisky is usually distilled twice, single pot still Whiskey is usually distilled three times.
