Billy Leighton har fundet frem til nogle fade produceret i 1989 hos Redbreast. Disse er blevet viet til i port casks og bliver nu aftappet som en 28 års ruby port cask edition.
Billy udtaler: "In our quest to find interesting new expressions to add to the Redbreast family, we do various trials and create prototypes along the way. We thought we should share this Dream Cask offering which is the product of one of these great adventures. When we first considered the use of Ruby Port seasoned casks, we vatted a small batch of carefully selected mix of Bourbon, Sherry and Port casks, then re-casked a portion into this Port cask to marry for a finishing period."
Noter (Billy Leighton):
Initially abundant with Herbs and Spices, some lighter notes of Rosemary and Garden Mint combining with Cedar and Red Peppers. Some zesty citrus notes develop in to a rich compote of ripe fleshy fruit, Melon, Kiwi and Black Cherry on top of Dried Apricot and Banana Chips. The spicy sweetness of Vanilla, Cinnamon and Nutmeg acknowledge the contribution of the Oak cask.
A very rich silky mouthful of assertive spices combined with sweet ripe fruit. Liquorice and Cinnamon notes slowly reveal a luxurious layer of ripe dark fruits which combine with those Raisins, Sultanas and exotic fruits and berries which are typical of the Redbreast style.
The signature Redbreast mix of fruit and spice, is slow to fade.
