Green Spot Irish Whiskey is a timeless expression of Irish craftsmanship, tracing its lineage back to Dublin's historic Mitchell & Son merchant house. Produced in Cork, the epicenter of Irish whiskey production, this venerable spirit adheres to the Single Pot Still method, a distinctive Irish process that employs both malted and unmalted barley. The whiskey is typically aged between 7 and 10 years, with a maturation process that includes a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. It proudly carries an ABV of 40%, perfectly poised to deliver a lush, full-bodied experience without overwhelming the palate. Third Base Market & Spirits is delighted to present this classic Irish whiskey, a symbol of heritage, quality, and unabashed authenticity.
A bright gold in the glass, Green Spot's visual aspect alone signals a promising voyage through traditional Irish whiskey craftsmanship.
On the nose, this whiskey reveals a layered tapestry of aromas. Orchard fruits like green apple and pear mingle effortlessly with a dash of freshly cut hay and a subtle touch of clove.
The initial taste offers a mouth-coating creaminess, lending a soft backdrop to flavors of zesty citrus, ripe melon, and nuances of ginger and oak. As befitting a Single Pot Still expression, the texture is notably oily and full, yet marvellously balanced.
The finish endears itself with moderate longevity, closing on notes of almonds and the faintest echo of spiced honey, ensuring a pleasing, well-rounded closure to each sip.
Green Spot's multifaceted palate makes it an ideal companion to a broad range of foods. Pair it with a hearty beef stew to accentuate its robustness or with a soft Irish cheese to bring forth its subtler fruit notes.
Green Spot Irish Whiskey is a heartfelt tribute to the Single Pot Still tradition, capturing the essence of Ireland in every drop. Its harmonious balance between fruit, spice, and creaminess ensures an eminently enjoyable sipping experience. To indulge in this Irish classic, make your way to Third Base Market & Spirits.
This isn't the most powerful whiskey in the bar; it's nowhere near being over the top. It shows a mild sweet nose with light to medium grain character and clear vanilla and caramel from the oak. Faint savory and dessert-y spices knock around the mid palate, with just the slightest sting of warmth on the finish. Never stops being interesting, and very easy to drink. This feels like it might be too subdued to pair with a cigar but I am certainly willing to do more research to confirm or disprove that notion.
It’s a great single spot still whiskey at a great price. Spice and oak on the nose, sweet honey and faint barley on the taste and lingering honey spice on the palate. At 40% it’s an easy drinker and a great entry point for those who haven’t tried single pot still Irish whiskey.
This is a lovely Irish pot still. Noses of honey, vanilla, fruit, toasted cereal, almond. It is cream in the mouth and the nosed flavors ring true. My first sip was so lovely I didn't even notice the alcohol's slight heat. I became more aware on the second sip--not because it is "hot," but I was able to get my mind past the initial glory of the dram's balanced flavor.
This is the best Irish whiskey on the market, extremely smooth with a hint of spice. Serve it over a few ice cubes.
Green Spot is a delicious smooth Irish Whiskey. For those you haven't tasted it yet, give it a try. You will not be disappointed!
