Redbreast Sherry Finish Lustau Edition was born of a unique collaboration between the Bodegas Lustau and the Midleton Distillery thanks to an old friendship. Redbreast Lustau Edition is initially matured in traditional bourbon and sherry casks for a period of 9-12 years. It is then finished for 1 additional year in first fill hand selected sherry butts that have been seasoned with the finest Oloroso sherry from the prestigious Bodegas Lustau in Jerez, Spain.
Nose: Rich infusion of dark fruits, prunes, dates & figs with liquorice, marzipan, toasted oak and Redbreast spices.
Taste: Creamy Pot Still with Redbreast spices balanced with richness of sherry finish and contribution of fresh Spanish oak.
A unique collaboration between the Bodegas Lustau and the Midleton Distillery, Redbreast Lustau Edition is made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and then triple distilled in copper pot stills. Having spent its final maturation journey in casks seasoned with the finest Oloroso Sherry in the Bodegas Lustau, the result is the ultimate sherried style of Redbreast.
The nose has a rich infusion of dark fruits, prunes, dates and figs with liquorice, marzipan, toasted oak and aromatic spices. The taste is silky smooth Pot Still; assertive spices balanced with richness of the sherry finish and contribution of fresh Spanish Oak. The finish is full of sweetness and assorted spices endure while Oloroso Sherry and Spanish Oak have the last word.
