General description

Another good one from Green spot family. Similar to regular /classic/ Green spot, but with several differences. Surely more spicy and more robust. Fruitiness is more like pears and red apple, caramel, baking spices, tannins, touch of medium-sweet red wine, orange, mint, marzipan, vanilla, white pepper, oak. In my opinion, higher ABV /46%/ and another wine cask makes this whiskey better than classic Green spot. Both are typical Irish single pot still whiskeys that I love.

General description

Another great whiskey in the Green spot range.

Nose

Light summer fruit and apple, but to much alcohol

Palate

Fruit, plenty of single pot still spice and oil. The red wine / barrell are to the fore

Finish

Medium length with more spice than the other green spots

General description

Interesting take on whisky. A few layers of complexity make it a great sipper. The Zinfandel finish adds some additional sweetness to the finish.
