Just In Time For St. Paddy's Day

This will sell fast.  We have a big email going out in about an hour, so this gives all you blog readers the headstart.

Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength Pure Pot Still Irish Whiskey $59.99 - Voted best Irish whiskey of the year by Whiskey Advocate Magazine with a 96 point review, this new and improved version of our most popular Irish malt is here just in time for St. Patty's day!  Gushing in their review, the Advocate writes: "A rich, bittersweet plummy, red berry, oaky-spiced delight, the increased strength gives an already great whiskey a richer, fuller, fruitier dimension, and makes an already complex whiskey even more complex. For me that makes it not just the best Irish whiskey of this year, but of any. An utter joy."  We couldn't agree more.  Redbreast has already become the go-to choice for serious Irish whiskey fans, but the new cask strength version only improves upon a malt that was already considered perfect.  The extra proof also allows rocks drinkers to cool down the malt without completely watering down the flavor.  Supply will be limited and demand has been through the roof so far.  We've had folks asking about this for months, so don't hesitate.  The price is fantastic and the quality is superb. Is it the best Irish whiskey ever?

Personally, I'm not really looking for cask strength with my Irish.  However, if you like the Redbreast as a highball, the cask strength really helps retain the flavor through any dillution via the ice.  Grab it while you can!
