Green Spot Irish Whiskey 700ml, 40%
Mitchell & Sons' Green Spot. One of the rarer Irish whiskies, described by whisky writer Jim Murray as 'Unquestionably one of the world's great whiskeys.' From Midleton, this is a pure pot still whiskey, a style every spirit fan should experience.
Sweet, rich and full bodied from the very start. It quickly fills the mouth with a glorious spiciness. All the time it somehow remains soft, though the tastebuds are constantly tweaked by a harder pot still maltiness. Wonderfully complex and busy.
This is a tremendous whiskey, sometimes giving a sweet-honey feel more associated with Perthshire malts from Scotland. But the pot still is confident enough to confirm this as Irish with a maturity greater than the age of the whiskey used. If you see it, grab it. It’s too much of a high class one-off to ignore.
