Redbreast Dream Cask Pedro Ximénez Edition tasting notes, by Head Blender Billy Leighton
- Aroma: full rich aroma of licorice and treacle toffee, giving cover to vanilla sweetness and a concentrate of caramelized 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
- Taste: A rich viscose mouthful of satisfyingly assertive spices combined with sweet ripe fruit. The licorice notes slowly evolve to reveal those typical exotic fruits and berries which define the Redbreast style
- Finish: Rich and long with those familiar Redbreast berries, slow to fade
Billy Leighton, Master Blender at Irish Distillers, commented: “In addition to selling out in record time, Redbreast Dream Cask Pedro Ximénez Edition has been bought by people from many parts of the globe. From Ireland to Taiwan and many places in between, we’re delighted that so many Birdhouse members will soon be able to share and enjoy this exceptional creation.”
