Redbreast Dream Cask Zenith Edition

The Last Chapter

A Fitting Tribute To Conclude The Collection

We introduce to you, this years most unique and rare expression, Redbreast Dream Cask Zenith Edition.

This 38-year old single pot still is the seventh, and final, edition in the Dream Cask series. The blenders sought out an extraordinary cask as a fitting tribute to the collection. First laid down in 1985 in second fill bourbon barrels, this exceptional whiskey was then re-casked in 2013 into oloroso sherry butts. The result is a truly satisfying finale to the remarkable story of our signature style with 45.3% ABV.

Aged to perfection by Master Blender Dave McCabe and Master Blender Emeritus Billy Leighton, Redbreast Dream Cask Zenith Edition embraces the art of finely tuning the flavour of whiskey during maturation through the skill of re-casking, a method that honours both Redbreast’s heritage and future.

Redbreast Dream Cask Zenith Edition Tasting Notes

A wonderful and rich combination of herbs and spices with notes of menthol, liquorice, rosemary, and allspice. Fruit elements offer aromas of black cherry and blackcurrants with hints of mango and orange peel. Many years of ageing in a combination of seasoned oak casks give an impression of antique furniture, delicate wood resin and linseed.

Tropical and fleshy fruits intermingle with luscious, smooth waves of vanilla and chocolate. Soft oak tannins eventually shine through, enhancing the pot still spices and showcasing notes of black peppercorns, freshly picked garden mint and a mild ginger spice. The fruits continue to build, working in harmony with the nutty undertones. The influences of Oloroso sherry add further intricacy to this complex whiskey.

A lingering finish in which decades of ageing has developed intense and rich flavours, leaving the pot still spices and fruits to have the final say as the oak slowly fades.
