An impressive revamp in the packaging for historic single pot still Irish whiskey Green Spot, which is no longer only available in Dublin grocer Mitchell's and will surely benefit from the increased marketing muscle lavished on it by owners Irish distillers. A cult whiskey. World Whiskies Awards 2012 - Best Irish No Age Statement Pot Still Whiskey
This is stupendous whiskey, absolutely brilliant whiskey. Worth every penny - truly a shame that it's not more readily available. If you like Redbreast or Powers John's Lane Pot Still whiskies, you'll love this one.

Mindblowing, green apple, fresh, unique, stunning whiskey

Found the first pour of a fresh bottle to be a tad harsh, hoping that mellows now that it's open.

My Brother suggested trying Green Spot on my recent trip to Ireland, oh my gosh is this stuff great, brought a bottle home! Smooth drinking.

This is a unique whiskey unlike anything that comes out of Scotland. It is a young whiskey (7-8 years old) the nose is fresh and the taste in full of fresh fruit and mint. The finish is short but very pleasant.I used to import this from Michell's in Ireland until recently. Thankfully I can now buy it from TWE. Hurrah!

After ignoring their last 2 pure pot stills for decades (having turned the pure pot still Powers, Jameson etc into cheaper blends in the 60's), even trying to kill them off very recently, Irish Distillers have suddenly gone all Irish whiskey heritage mad and have released 3 new ones. Is it because a new independant distillery is coming out with a pure pot still (yes they've renamed theirs single pot still), Cooley is comming out with a pure pot still and Writers tears was doing so well?

Love it, but may decant it into the old bottle, the new packaging makes it look like a bottle of wine.

The best Irish whiskey ever.....the only way it can be better is if you are sitting in the Horseshoe Bar at the Shelbourne on St Stephen's Green......brilliant.

shame this stuff has gotten so expensive, that being said it is a fantastic whiskey which can only be compared to redbreast at the price. anyone that wants to know potstill is made by distilling malted and unmalted grains togeather (not a blend) to create a new depth of flavour. more expensive to make then single malt but not always better.

A superb whiskey, soft and mellow but complex and flavoursome. Love the new packaging as it gives it the more premium look it deserves. The old packaging made it look like a cheap blend

A great whisky, and gets better if you open and then leave it for 6 months. I prefer the original bottling though ;)
