Green Spot is part of the great Irish tradition of Pot Still whiskies. Pot Given the long and illustrious history of Irish whiskey, it’s surprising that this is one of only a handful of Irish single malts on the market. Triple-distilled in the traditional Irish manner, this is matured in a combination of American oak and oloroso casks.
This 40% strength version (there is a more expensive cask strength version) is over ten years old and is released in “limited” batches of 6000. Irish whiskey, it has to be said is not the cheapest, but this retails for around £40, which makes it something of a bargain in our eyes, considering its quality.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Orange, lemon and lime. Fruit chews.
Palate: Nice balance of richness and citrusy fruits with a chewy and oaky finale. An absolute cracker!! Can’t wait to try the cask strength version.
Retails for around £40-45
