Green Spot Single Pot Still Whiskey
Green Spot Single Pot Still Whiskey, 7 YO, 40 %
The dram in focus on this fine day is the Green Spot Single Pot Still Whiskey, produced at the Midleton Distillery in Ireland.
Here is the official information about this whiskey:
"A non age statement Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey comprising of pot still whiskeys aged between 7 & 10 years. The whiskey has matured in a combination of new bourbon and refill bourbon casks as well as sherry casks."
Nose: Fresh, green apples at first - then gradually a symphony of orchard fruits. Vanilla cream, milk chocolate and malt. Hints of strawberries and citrus. Light and delightful sweetness. Always fruity. Almost sensual with time. It just keeps developing and improving.
Taste: Full bodied and rich - a typical single pot still whiskey mouthfeel. Fruity and mildly sweet on the palate. Creamy. Softly oaky with hints of menthol and mint.
Finish: Medium to long finish. Does not develop much further, but that is hardly necessary as this is great from start to finish.
Comment: Green, fresh and delightful!
