So what’s the Lustau edition all about and why should you be excited? Redbreast Lustau is a Non – Age Statement single pot still initially aged in bourbon and sherry casks for a period between 9 and 12 years after which it spends a further year maturing in specially selected sherry butts at the bodegas Lustau.
‘That tastes like they made it from an ashtray’. A good friend passed the glass back towards me and shook his head, disgusted. A ten year old glass of Ardbeg, costs roughly €70 a bottle and he almost spat it back at me. I could only laugh because as much as I liked it, I could totally see his point of view.
