Redbreast Small Batch Cask Strength (Batch B), 57.2%

Price: $100 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A bold and expressive single pot still with a nose of fudge, vanilla, plummy sherry notes, bramble, aromatic spices, and dried orange peel. Sweet sherry, nutty, with a slow build-up of spice to a concentrated peak of clove and peppercorns; then there's red apple, caramel, and vanilla as the spices keep going into the dry finish. This one has a lot to say. (252 bottles)
