Green Spot, Middleton distillery's expression of Nas (without year indication) aged in first-fill and second-fill Bourbon and Sherry barrels by distilling from Pot Still malted and unmalted barley.

Green Spot, sold under the Mitchell & Son company name, Yellow Spot and, together with the recently released Red Pot, form the “Spot” series.

It is said that the Dublin-based Mitchell & Son company, which is actually in the wine business, got into the whiskey business in the 1920s. The name “Spot” comes from the paint applied to the aging barrels for coding purposes.

For detailed information about the Irish Single Pot Still genre. you may take a look at my article. .

Green Spot (Single Pot Still, %40 abv)

Nose: Malt, vanilla, mint and old wood scents are followed by fruity notes such as orange, apple and lime. The intense spice character also makes itself felt at the back in a balanced way. Warm and elegant.

Palate: The spice character is more prominent on the palate. Plenty of spice, oak and slightly burnt flavors are accompanied by caramel, apple, citrus, lime and light menthol. I can say that it left a bitter-sweet trace behind. Warm, dry and plump.

Finish: Medium length and warm. Oak, black pepper and citrus.

My Comments: Green Spot is a full and warm whiskey dominated by aromas of malt, fruit, oak and, as one would expect from a Single Pot Still, spice.
