Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength Irish Whiskey
Most whiskey is at a strength of around 60% when it is taken from the barrel to be bottled.
The majority of whiskeys are then diluted with pure water down to around 40% before they are bottled. Cask strength whiskeys are normally well aged whiskeys which will be around 55% when taken straight from the barrel. The plus point of cask strength whiskey is that the flavour is much more intense. The minus is that there can be a great degree of alcohol mouth burn for the novice whiskey drinker.
Cask strength whiskey therefore is really only recommended for purchase and consumption by the experienced whiskey aficionado.

Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength is one for the Irish whiskey aficionado who wants their whiskey from a place one step closer to the distillery. Beginners, beware of alcohol burn which can over power an inexperienced palate. Although a two Pooka whiskey, I’d wait until you have appreciated a few Three Pooka whiskeys before returning to sample a cask strength. Redbreast is casked in small quantities of maybe no more than 75 casks at a time allowing each run to have a unique cask influence.
