  • The Spot Names

    Red, Yellow, Blue & Green

    The Mitchells matured their whiskey in casks under the streets of Dublin in their network of underground cellars. When their fortified wine casks were filled exclusively with Jameson spirit from the old Bow St. Distillery, they were marked with a daub or ‘spot’ of paint which identified how long the barrels would be matured for. Blue for 7 years, Green for 10 years, Yellow for 12 years and Red for 15 years—hence the name Spot Whiskey. -

Tasting Notes

  • Color & Consistency: Golden Amber, medium and quickly developing legs
  • Nose: Orange, tangerine, wet dog & donuts. Light alcohol, cocoa
  • Taste: Smooth, very light spice and clove. Good mouth feel.
  • Finish: Medium finish of grain and spice. Buttery.
  • Conclusion: Its a pretty good Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey from Midleton but saying that it is fairly expensive for what you get is probably an understatement. It would be a great gift for that Irish lover in your life or someone that can appreciate the more nuanced of distillates. For the money we most likely won't buy it again just because its good but not that good and unfortunately we had to knock it back on the glass rating solely due to that fact.
