Redbreast Kentucky Oak Edition is a single pot still Irish whiskey produced by the Midleton Distillery in County Cork, Ireland. It is part of the Redbreast range of whiskeys, which are known for their full, rich flavors and distinctive pot still character. The Kentucky Oak Edition is made from a blend of malted and unmalted barley, which is triple distilled in copper pot stills. It is then aged in a combination of first-fill bourbon barrels and first-fill Oloroso sherry casks, which gives it its complex flavor profile.
The Redbreast Kentucky Oak Edition has a deep golden color and a nose that is rich and spicy, with notes of oak, vanilla, and toffee. The palate is full and rounded, with flavors of sweet caramel, toasted oak, and dried fruit, balanced by a gentle warmth and a hint of spice. The finish is long and smooth, with a lingering sweetness and a hint of oak.
The Redbreast Kentucky Oak Edition is a limited edition release, and is only available in selected markets. It is bottled at 46% ABV, and is non-chill filtered to preserve its natural flavor and character. It is a highly regarded whiskey, and has won several awards, including a gold medal at the World Whiskies Awards.
