Redbreast 12 year old Cask Strength (Batch B1/21), 56.3%

Price: $84 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Golden sultana, fragrant spice, dried orange slices, star anise, baked apricot, and hints of flaked chocolate bar. Spices leap from a butterscotch and red berry base, vociferously showing clove, star anise, and ginger root, which part to welcome flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla pod, oak, and juicy nectarine. The cask strength is rarely less than spectacular, but this batch is singularly distinctive.
