Given that my current bottle of Redbreast is down to two or three pours, the timing couldn't be better for replacing it (as I always do) with the cask strength version. Anyone have any idea what the price range might be?

According to Just Drinks (http://www.just-drinks.com/news/pernod-ricards-redbreast-aged-12-years-cask-strength_id105063.aspx):

"Price - Between EUR65 (US$87.50) and EUR69 (dependent on country
and local excise) per 70cl bottle"

This will be awesome except for the fact that it won't arrive in the US until February!

This is great news the RB12 is a very unique whiskey and always has a spot on my shelf.

Any word as to what proof this will be bottled at?

Well I hope at what ever strength proof comes out from each cask dumped together hence the tag "cask strength"... but I get your question if your thinking of something like Rare Breed which says it is barrel proof but how do they get all the dumps to come out to 108.2 proof (at least for the 03RB version). I don't know what proof Redbreast or other Irish goes into the barrel which may give a clue as to what proof it will come out but maybe some of the Irish whiskey experts here know more about that and what expected proof range it should be.

Saw this mentioned on Hansell's FB post. I'm mighty stoked about this myself, as the kids say.

Thanks for the heads up John. Can't wait.

Now everybody go get yourself a bottle. It is worthy of the hype. I get more citrus and grapefruit than plum and red berry that Dominic Roskrow found but but maybe that will change upon second tasting tonight :grin: .

Yes it is here in Chicago. Of course Jameson radio ads have already been running non stop here in anticipation of St. Patricks day so first distribution here may be on purpose.

I'm fairly new to Irish whiskey, and wasn't a real big fan (when compared to my bourbon) until I recently tried the RB12. It was really wonderful stuff. Very different and exceptionally smooth and flavorful.

I have not seen the cask strength on the shelf in KY yet, but may do a serious search this weekend.

Very nice pour that really takes Irish whiskey to the next level...IMO

Agreed. For Irish, it's top shelf.

My friend jusy brought a bottle back from Ireland and we are tasting it now. Fantastic whiskey, can't wait to get my own!

Had the Redbreast 12 CS earlier in week and was blown away by how good it is. I've always been a huge fan of the regular R12 but this stuff is truly sublime and should be sought out by those who love their Irish whiskey.

Could you point me in the direction of a bottle? Binny's (out by me at least) doesn't appear to have it. The regular 12 year is phenomenal so I can only imagine what the CS is like.

Can't help you now as that was 9 months ago. You'll probably have to wait till early next year, pre St. Paddy's day, and hope more is coming across the big pond. You might be able to find a straggler at one of the many Binny's. Their web site doesn't list it but is not always 100% accurate on what may be on a shelf in one of their 29 locations. I just saw a rum in River Grove that's not on the site.

The next (second?) batch seems to be in the States, now. I picked up a bottle that was 58.6% ABV just last week. The first batch was 57.7% ABV. I tried both batches side by side. More fruit on the 58.6%. The 57.7% is smoother and more buttery in flavor.

Darn. That first batch sounds more to my liking, but I'm sure the second won't disappoint. Do you know when it started popping up on shelves?

I noticed it for the first time around Thanksgiving. There was about a month of time where I couldn't find the cask strength version at all, so an annual release might be just right. I checked my bottles the other day and they are labeled with batch numbers: B1/11 and B1/12. I guess those can be interpreted as batch 1 for 2011, and batch 1 for 2012.

Happy Birthday to me! I mentioned to Dawn a year or more ago that I'd like a bottle of this. Our local liquor store operator called Dawn with a bottle on the day before my birthday so Dawn scurried over and picked up a bottle. A very happy birthday. Will crack it open and give it a try soon. B1/12 58.6%.

I have a bottle of the batch B1/12 at 58.6%, and it's my first foray into Redbreast so I can't compare to other batches. It's also only the second Irish whisky I've had (the standard Jameson's being the other). Personally I think this stuff is fantastic with a nice amount of fruit and bit of what I have heard termed the "penny" flavor (i.e. some copper-ish overtones). It was a Christmas present to myself, but didn't get opened till recently due to my palette being all screwed up back then (sinuses or something), and then it getting pushed back into the cabinet and forgotten about for a couple of months.
