Redbreast Dream Cask 2019

Redbreast’s Dream Cask Pedro Ximénez Edition, a limited edition Irish whiskey, sold out in under 15 minutes.

But we got to review it!

The whiskey went on sale at 3pm on 27 May priced at €380, exclusively available to members of Redbreast’s online Birdhouse club. By 3:14pm all 924 bottles had been sold, averaging at a rate of 65 bottles per minute.

Billy Leighton, master blender at Redbreast owner Irish Distillers, said: ’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.

The expression is a vatting of two single pot still whiskeys fully matured in second-fill ex-Bourbon barrels, and two that were finished in ex-Sherry butts – one oloroso cask and one Pedro Ximénez cask. The four casks were then married together in a ‘specially selected’ Pedro Ximénez butt. The whiskeys, aged between 20 and 33 years old, are said to represent ‘a cross-section of single pot still distillate styles and maturation techniques’.

Bottled at 52.2% abv, only 924 bottles of the whiskey was available for €380 each.
