Redbreast 20 year old Dream Cask Pedro Ximénez Edition, 52.5%

Price: $415 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Following one of 2018's most collectible releases, this vatting of four mature pot still whiskeys finished in a PX butt is quite a departure for Redbreast. The nose has incredible depth, with dark, sticky, concentrated black cherry, candied peel, coriander leaf, vanilla, allspice, clove, and whole almond. This heavy, unctuous, mouth-coating whiskey resonates with rich fruits, clove, licorice, and juicy blackberry, ending with pot still spice and bitter notes. (924 bottles) €380
