Redbreast 12 year old Cask Strength (Batch B1/18), 56.2%

Price: $84 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This batch heightens the fruitiness of apple, orange peel, dried strawberry, and peach over potent spices on the nose. Strawberry and raspberry flavors revel in the oily richness, then crescendo to a pot still spice storm that rages in the mouth like a swarm of bees. Long, spicy finish with vestiges of fruit and toasted oak. Thrill-seekers' whiskey, if you dare.
