Nose: Pot Still spices with rich cooked fruit, baked apple, mango and black cherry. Hazelnut and a touch of new leather fuse with toasted American oak.
Taste: A mix of ripe fruit sweetness from the Marsala seasoned wine casks. While the fruit remains, sweet red pepper and cracked black pepper and some spiciness, finished by notes of American oak and barley.
Finish: An extra long infusion of fruit and spices.
This Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey has matured for over 15 years in a combination of American Bourbon casks, Spanish sherry butts and Sicilian Marsala wine casks, all contributing rich and complex flavors, making it the top spot in the range. Importer Notes
Originally produced in the early 20th century, Red Spot formed part of Dublin wine merchant Mitchell & Son’s Spot Whiskeys range, which also included Green, Yellow and Blue variants. However it was discontinued in the mid-1960s.
Based on an ‘old recipe’ handed down by Mitchell & Son, the new Red Spot is a triple distilled single pot still Irish whiskey from Midleton distillery, matured for at least 15 years in a combination of ex-Bourbon, oloroso Sherry and marsala casks.
Red Spot has been bottled at 46% abv without chill filtration, and is now available for around €115 in Ireland ahead of its release in the US, UK, France and global travel retail in January 2019.
The expression joins Green Spot, which was discontinued in the 1960s and reintroduced in the early 2000s, and Yellow Spot, which was reintroduced in 2012.
