Redbreast Single Pot Still Lustau Finish Review

Containing a blend of malted and unmalted barley in the mash bill, this pot still whiskey is triple distilled before it embarks on a long aging journey. That journey begins with a period of nine to 12 years resting in bourbon and sherry casks. A further, final resting period adds a special touch: One year in Oloroso sherry butts sourced from Bodegas Lustau. The double sherry influence doesn’t overwhelm the nose, though, with dried apricots, almonds, and a hint of vanilla instead driving the aromas. The palate is equally balanced, showing a lively mix of ripe stone fruit and nuts. The sherry cask influence fully presents itself on the finish, in the form of persisting sweet and savory flavors. This is wonderful.
