Hand-selected by, Master Blender, Billy Leighton and laid down to mature in the Midleton Distillery, this cask represents a unique and singular nuanced expression of Redbreast with the Oloroso Sherry Single cask a joy to behold.

This is the second Redbreast release for Sonny Molloy’s. In 2018, the now sold out Redbreast 16 Year Old Single Cask whiskey marked the first ever partnership between Redbreast and a bar. So, it is very fitting that the first bar to receive a single cask, is also selected to receive one of the last.

Tasting Notes for Sonny Molloy’s Redbreast 19 Year Old Oloroso Sherry Single Cask

Nose: Begins with rich notes of walnut and hazelnut intertwined with dark berry fruits, black treacle and sultanas. The oloroso seasoning continues to impart additional dried fruits and balsamic sweetness while the toasted oak evolves with aromas of confectionary baked goods and sweet vanilla.

Taste: Soft tannic structure with dry notes of cocoa powder and ground almond at first, closely followed by waves of sweet, sugar glazed cherries and golden raisins. The delicate pot still spices work in harmony with the rich and flavoursome sherry seasoned oak.

Finish: Captivating finish where the dried fruits and soft spices gently fade allowing the oak to have the last word.
