  • Excerpt: It didn’t quite live up to the previous releases, but I still think it is good, cask strength Irish whiskey which isn’t easy to come by. The biggest problem though is Redbreast 12 Year CS which is more available, cheaper, and I think a better experience.

  • Excerpt: At least as good as the 12yr Cask Strength, Redbreast’s new Small Batch Cask Strength definitely delivers a slightly different profile with much more dessert and cream and I’m into it.

  • Intro:

    Distilled and produced by Redbreast as an exclusive US market release exclusive, Redbreast’s Small Batch Cask Strength rivals their 12yr Cask Strength expression - both in ABV and price.

  • Nose:

    Rich on the nose, lovely combination of stewed fruits, figs, bright caramel and cream, and some tobacco. Plenty of nice oak here to keep things balanced.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate, moderate to rich mouthfeel. Plenty of peach, honey, currant, tobacco and cream - definitely a complex sip to work through. Honey, praline, rich caramel. Creme brûlée. Lovely.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. A pinprick of heat, but well within what I’d expect for the ABV. Honey, toffee, cream and praline are most noticeable here with some faint stewed fruits and a taste of peach cobbler.

  • Overall:

    At least as good as the 12yr Cask Strength, Redbreast’s new Small Batch Cask Strength definitely delivers a slightly different profile with much more dessert and cream and I’m into it.
