Tasting Notes by Rantavahti
Green Spot is a Single Pot Still Irish whiskey matured in first fill and re-fill bourbon casks and sherry casks. Coming from New Midleton Distillery (which makes Redbreast), I had high hopes tasting this at Irish whiskey tasting in our local whisky community.
Somehow this dram didn’t rock my boat as much as I had thought. Probably too young for this kind of palate, a bit rough. Green Spot is like a TV movie, having few moments of glory, but at time to time, being a bit dull.
Full of green fruits, felt like I was tasting it on a House On Greenapple Road.
Nose: Hints of sherry and green apples. Apricot in a perfume kinda way, the aromas are delicate. Sugared barley notes.
Taste: Green fruits like apples and (raw) pears, and some rubber notes. Water brings out nice toffee.
Finish: Quick, with spices and bitter notes, hints of oak with small amounts of vanilla.
Balance: The nose makes a lot more promises, than the actual taste gives. Not a bad dram but too delicate for my taste and a bit one-sided. Have to keep in mind, that these tasting notes are based on only one sample, though. Probably a full, oxidated bottle of this might chance the score over time.
