Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey bottles its 14 year old small batch exclusively for Oak + Violet

Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey bottles its 14 year old small batch exclusively for Oak + Violet at the Park James Hotel, a nod to the boutique hotel’s Menlo Park, CA Irish roots.

Redbreast — the largest selling Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey in the world, considered the definitive expression of the traditional Irish spirit produced since 1903, has bottled its 14 year small batch exclusively for Oak + Violet at the Park James Hotel,
(broughtonHotels). The luxury boutique hotel is located in Menlo Park, CA — a beautiful Silicon Valley town steeped in Irish history. The restaurant has 250 numbered bottles of the Oak + Violet Redbreast branded whiskey, available for purchase only at the hotel priced at $350 + tax.

This Redbreast Small Batch is a release of four small batches of Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, aged for a minimum of 14 years and bottled at Cask Strength. The four batches consist of 4 components of varying amounts of each component for a similar yet distinct flavor profile across the four batches, all within the award-winning Redbreast family profile

Notes on the 14 year:
* Nose: Initial sweet notes of raisins and figs, typical of the Oloroso sherry casks with additional herbal notes of thyme and rosemary. The years spent in oak is quite evident, with rich toasted wood notes and vanilla, while remaining in balance with the Pot Still spices.
* Taste: Mouth coating with a rich texture, mild nuttiness and dried fruit character. The tannins evolve adding a slightly dry note along with berry fruits and dark chocolate.
* Finish: Long and lingering with the oak contribution continuing to evolve, while the Pot Still spices subside allowing the fried fruit notes to remain until the very end.
* 58.9% ABV

The Park James is a Broughton Hotel.
