Description: Triple distilled and aged 14 years in a combination of used bourbon and sherry casks, the whiskeys that went into this special Redbreast blend are truly exceptional. Midleton put out four batches - A, B, C and D - of this limited edition series. Each batch was blended together from 20+ barrels, drawing on two different types of Midleton’s single pot still spirit. The whiskeys in Batch B began aging in bourbon barrels before being transferred into Oloroso sherry barrels. Bottle strength varies across the 11 bottles from 57.2% vol up to 59.1% vol. Each one of these bottles is from a small batch of only 252 bottles so they are each part of a very limited edition in their own right, to have them all together for sale as one set is extraordinary, To our knowledge this is the first time that a full set has been auctioned anywhere in the world, so interest in this outstanding lot is bound to be very high.
