Redbreast Dream Cask Oloroso Sherry Edition is a 29-year-old single pot still Irish whiskey that celebrates the signature Redbreast style and represents the fulfilment of a dream held by Master Blender Billy Leighton to share an annual release like no other.
When selecting their whiskey of choice for this fourth release, Leighton and Blender Dave McCabe combined innovation, tradition and time-honoured craftsmanship by vatting together four special whiskeys, aged for a minimum of 29 years in ex-bourbon, sherry and ruby port seasoned casks. The whiskeys were married in a single outstanding Oloroso sherry butt from Jerez de la Frontera in Spain’s Andalusia region, and left to mature for a further 15 months to bring an evolution of its characteristic flavours to the Redbreast experience.
The extended finishing time of this magnificent Dream Cask enables the individual wood contributions to come together and take on a wide spectrum of mellow fruit flavours and pot still spices. The result is a luxuriously rich Irish whiskey with notes of dried fruits, herbs and toasted oak and a complex aroma of liquorice, leather and nutmeg reminiscent of Andalusian bodegas.
This year's packaging takes on a new sustainable lens in a unique story book, this is a move that sees us turn the page to a more sustainable future and showcase the Dream Cask story and production process behind this year's Dream Cask release.
Redbreast Dream Cask Oloroso Sherry Edition is limited to 924 bottles at a RRP of €520 and ABV 51.2%.
A rich and complex array of aromas with liquorice, dried fruits and a freshly crushed garden mint character to the fore while dark berries and delicate touches of orange marmalade build over time, working in tandem with the pronounced aromas of worn leather, tobacco leaf and nutmeg. Cinnamon spice and sweet vanilla highlight the intricate nature of the oak, complimenting and enhancing the pot still spices.
Luscious and full, with succulent berry fruits, soft anise spice and mild tannins. The taste evolves effortlessly with notes of dark brown sugar, vanilla, and raisins adding a sweet element, creating balance with the pot still spices while hints of cinnamon and nutmeg remain constant in the background.
Lingering finish with the spices slowly fading allowing the oak and fruit to have the final say.

Where to begin? 1912, probably. The year the chairman of W&A Gilbey spotted the Robin Redbreast through the trees and decided on the name, there and then.
The name stuck, the reputation grew, and the bird made his way onto the label and now onto your screens.
Our rich and complex taste used to speak for itself, now we’ve got a little help from the bird that started it all.
