For the first time ever, Green Spot Irish whiskey is now available in the U.S.! And this sought-after Irish whiskey has not only made it to the United States, but it has also made its way to your nearest Payless Liquor Store location here in Indianapolis.
Green Spot is one of the rarest and finest whiskies in the world today. In fact, it’s so rare that the Midleton distillery in Dublin only produces 500 cases each year. Its rarity is contributed to by the fact that it’s one of the few single pot still whiskey brands to be produced today.
Single pot still whiskey is a term that refers to the style of whiskey. It is comprised of a mixture of malted and unmalted barley, which is triple distilled in traditional Irish copper pot stills. As one of Ireland’s oldest spirits, Green Spot can trace its roots back nearly 12 decades, to the 20th century. Back then, it was even harder to come by, because only 12,000 bottles were produced each year.
As a single pot still, this Irish whiskey is very complex in its main characteristics. A honey flavor offsets its innate spiciness. Green Spot is a light amber color, which comes from it being aged in sherry and ex-bourbon barrels.
The nose has hints of peppermint, malt and sweet barley. Flavors of sugary porridge, creamy vanilla and citrus are also present. Some tasters even recall a dusty aroma in Green Spot, which is attributed to the sherry cask aging.
The Body and Palate
On the palate, one can taste a combination of gentle bourbon oak, green wood, menthol and potpourri. Green Spot has a balanced spicy, yet soft, flavor. It has a very pleasant and light body.
Finally, Green Spot finishes long and creamy. Punches of vanilla, warm fruit and hazelnut are also present in the finish. It is known to leave one craving more.
Since Green Spot is so hard to come by, especially here in the U.S., it’s perfect for the whiskey collector, or really just anyone who enjoys an authentic Irish whiskey. This whiskey has received several acclamations and some even say it’s the best Irish whiskey they’ve ever had!
