Lustau Edition, Single-Pot Still Irish Whiskey
As we’ve noted before, the phrase “single pot still” in Irish Whisky is akin to the respect warranted by single malt in scotch. Redbreast’s latest, the Lustau Edition, sees this well-crafted spirit aged in Bodegas Lustau ex-Sherry barrels. The traditional Irish whisky creaminess meets with spice that lingers well after each sip. At 92 proof, this spirit is rather potent but without any loss of nuance.
