History and Tasting Notes
On World Whisky Day this year Redbreast 32-Year-Old Dream Cask Single Pot Cask Still Irish Whiskey was launched at the Irish Whisky Academy in Middleton. This Dream Cask was selected by Redbreast's very own Bill Leighton. The selection process for this dram was made and the cask number chosen was 41207 as it stood out from the other cask as it had everything required for this special edition of Redbreast. Last Year on World Whisky Day it was the first launched as a 31-Year-Old Dream Cask, so Redbreast decided to use the same source again, but with another year in the sherry casks.
As it was World Whisky Day on the 19th May 2018 Redbreast decided to launch this lovely whiskey with an ageing process going back to 31st October 1985. Firstly, the whiskey was held in refill ex-Bourbon barrels for 25 years and then the past seven years in the Oloroso sherry butt.
