Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey 750ml
Green Spot is now a Non-age Statement Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, matured in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, it has distinctive apple and orchard fruits elements which make it stand out. The easiest description for this whiskey would be 'Sweet and fresh'. A must have for all SPS whiskey enthusiasts and anyone who enjoys smooth flavourful sweet drams. Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is produced by the Midleton Distillery, Co Cork. The brand itself was created by Mitchell & Son Wine Merchants. The Mitchell's originally bought full casks of mature whiskey from the Jameson Bow street distillery and had these cask transported to their bonded warehouse in Fitzwilliam lane. When these cask reached certain ages they would paint a coloured spot on the cask to mark these milestones. A Green Spot was marked on the casks to mark 10 years old. These were such sought after whiskeys and such an iconic brand that they have now been recreated by Irish Distillers.

About the brand
In 1805, William Mitchell established a bakery and confectionery business on Dublin's Grafton Street. In 1887, the business expanded into the wine and spirit trade at a location on nearby Kildare Street. At the time, it was common practice in Ireland for merchants to purchase distillate in bulk from whiskey distilleries and then mature it themselves in their own casks in bonded warehouses. The merchants had ample supplies of casks due to the importation of wine and fortified wines such as port and sherry. Therefore, it was a natural progression for Mitchell & Son to enter the bonded whiskey trade. Using distillate obtained from Jameson's nearby Bow Street Distillery, Mitchell & Son matured whiskey in a mix of casks that had been used to hold both dark and light sherries in their cellars under Fitzwilliam Lane in Dublin. For the first five years of maturation, half of the whiskey was aged in casks that had previously held Oloroso and other darker sherries, with the other half aged in casks that had held lighter finos. This combination prevented the darker wines from overpowering the whiskey. After five years, whiskeys from the respective light and dark sherry casks were then vatted together and allowed to mature for an additional five years in neutral oak. Mitchell & Son's whiskey was originally marketed as "Pat Whisky", with the labels featuring the logo of a man on a green background. However, in 1933, it was rebranded as "John Jameson & Son 10 Year Old Green Seal" and later became known simply as Green Spot. Mitchell & Son sold a range of whiskeys under the "Spot" brand. The name itself originated from Mitchell's practice of marking casks of different ages with a spot of colored paint. There was a 7-year-old Blue Spot, a 12-year-old Yellow Spot, and a 15-year-old Red Spot. However, it was the 10-year-old Green Spot that emerged as the company's most popular whiskey, and it was the only Spot whiskey to remain in continuous production until the present. Although it relaunched in 2012, Yellow Spot ceased bottling for decades in the late 1950s. According to posts on the Irish Whiskey Club's Facebook page in August 2018, Red Spot is set to be relaunched, possibly in October 2018. In 1971, Irish Distillers closed its Dublin distilleries (including Bow Street) and consolidated production in Midleton. As a result, the makeup of the whiskey was altered for the first time in known history. This change, coupled with low stocks of maturing whiskey, led Mitchell & Son to make an agreement with Irish Distillers to mature the whiskey onsite in Irish Distillers' own casks, with Mitchell & Son having sole rights to market, sell, and develop the whiskey.

Decent soul. Not excessively sweet without an excessive amount of sherry.

An extremely pleasant taste to begin with as you anticipate from Irish whisky however found the end had an odd... ocean growth finish? No thought..

A nose solid on plantation organic products. Opens with comparable sweet profile of pears or apples commanding with some moderate to gentle flavor. Oak and sweet grains close waiting for a short to direct length. Smooth and light on the bed.
