Description

This is the second addition to the ‘Spot’ range of Irish whiskies, which contains the famous Green Spot Pot Still Whiskey. The Yellow Spot is a single pot still Irish whiskey which has been matured in three types of cask: American Bourbon cask, Spanish Sherry butts and Spanish Malaga casks for a sweeter flavour.

Tasting notes:

Nose: There are masses of fleshy stone fruit on the nose, especially peach and apricot with hints of sherried dried fruit and Bourbon cask vanilla.

Palate: The palate is equally fruity with a substantial body and a velvety texture.

Finish: The finish is long and sweet with notes of marzipan and dried apricots.

Overall: This is very different to the Green Spot we all know and love with a delicious sweetness to it and a firmer body.

Having tried Redbreast 12, 15 and 21 year offerings I decided to give Yellow Spot a try. In my opinion it gives the Redbreast a run for their money. Very complex taste that does have a sweeter lingering after with notes of chocolate, vanilla and apricots. It’s so good I’ll try to always have some in stock.
