    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.

    You could always order it from TPS.

    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?

    Re: Cask-Strength 12yr Redbreast Coming!

    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%.
