Green Spot is a pure 'pot still' Irish whiskey made by Jameson (Midleton) distillery for the Dublin whisky merchants Mitchell & Son. Pot Still whiskies use an unusual mixture of both malted and unmalted barley within their mash bill. The Green Spot Château Léoville Barton is a Green Spot variation aged initially in a combination of bourbon- and oloroso-sherry casks before being finished for up to two years in barriques from famed Bordeaux winery Château Léoville Barton. The result is a sweet blend of orchard fruit and spicy flavours with obvious wine notes.
It's an unusual whisky with an unusual history but it's an incredibly flavourful look at a completely different approach to whisky production. Incredibly easy going, very drinkable and one of my "you say you don't like whisky" whiskies.
Green Spot Leoville Barton Bordeaux Finish is a single pot still whisky. Rated an average of 4.2 out of 5 by 19 reviewers and available from Amazon for only £51.78, falling slightly short of liquid gold but this in a solid everyday single pot still whisky.
