Redbreast Lustau Edition
New Bottling! A unique collaboration between the prestigious Bodegas Lustau in Jerez, Spain and the Midleton Distillery in County Cork. Initially matured in traditional bourbon & sherry casks for a period of 9-12 years. It is then finished for one extra year in first fill sherry butts which have been seasoned with oloroso sherry from the prestigious Bodegas Lustau in Jerez, Spain.
Tasting Notes: Nose: A welcoming mix of spiced apple juice, dried fruits, dusty oak, orange peel, pear drops, crystalised ginger and creme caramel.
Palate: Sweet, fruity and creamy. Some classic pot still prickliness at the start and some touches of sappy oak, tart citrus, dried fruits and chocolate toffees.
Finish: Nice development in the mouth with a smooth transition from tart, bittersweet fruit to headier, chocolate, spice and sappy oak flavours.
