Redbreast Dream Cask 20 Pedro Ximenez edition Whiskey
is created from a combination of hand selected Bourbon and Sherry casks ageing from 20 to 33 years, marrying the vatting in a Pedro Ximénez Sherry and Bourbon seasoned Butt. Guided by the vision of Billy Leighton, Redbreast Dream Cask Pedro Ximenez Edition is a story 33 years in the making and four casks in the shaping.
The nose is a full rich aroma of Liquorice and Treacle Toffee, giving cover to Vanilla sweetness and a concentrate of caramelised dried fruits. Cinnamon and Clove acknowledge the presence of the ex Bourbon influence whilst Hazelnut and Almond nuttiness adds to the complexity delivered by the fine old Pedro Ximénez Butt from Jerez.
The taste a rich viscose mouthful of satisfying assertive spices combined with sweet ripe fruit. The liquorice notes slowly evolve to reveal those typical exotic fruits and berries which define the Redbreast style and the finish, a rich and long with those familiar Redbreast berries, slow to fade.
