Redbreast was a brand name for Jameson's pure Irish pot still, bottled in bond by Gilbeys. First made in 1939 with Jameson filling Gilbey's own casks. Two sherry casks were used for each bourbon cask. The brand died off with the closure of Jamesons distillery but was recently relaunched and is a huge favourite with both whiskey drinkers and connoisseurs. Really deserves to be marketed worldwide! A 100% heavy pot still whiskey with a high sherry ageing percentage.
Nose: A Complex Spicy and Fruity Aroma with Toasted Wood Notes.
Palate: Harmonious Balance of Spicy, Fruity, Sherry and Toasted Notes.
