Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Peter Mulryan

Nose: The breathtaking crackle of pot still whiskey, infused with gentle wintergreen.

Taste: Full bodied with no apologies. Oily linseed cooled by strains of gentle menthol, joined by some spiciness towards the end. 

Finish: Dry and sweet and long

Comments: For those who like a slighly lighter pot still than that found in the older, more sherry influenced Redbreast.

Tasting Notes by Jim Murray

Nose: The first thing to strike you is the density of the nose; nothing light and flowery here. The pot still appears older than its eight years thanks to a pleasant dustiness (something similar to old Redbreast), and the influence of the sherry. All this is mixed with a curious menthol sub-stratum. Some evidence of bourbon wood around too, but rather overshadowed by this highly unusual cough-sweet, malty effect.

Taste: Sweet, rich and full bodied from the very start. It quickly fills the mouth with a glorious spiciness. All the time it somehow remains soft, though the tastebuds are constantly tweaked by a harder pot still maltiness. Wonderfully complex and busy.

Finish: Very long, dry and malty to start then sweetens and some late spice adds to all the fun. The very last, dying rays are rather cool on the throat, as if the menthol on the nose has returned.

Comments: This is a tremendous whiskey, sometimes giving a sweet-honey feel more associated with Perthshire malts from Scotland. But the pot still is confident enough to confirm this as Irish with a maturity greater than the age of the whiskey used. If you see it, grab it. It’s too much of a high class one-off to ignore.

Just returned form Ireland last week. I was lucky to be in Cork during Cork Whiskey Way. Sampled 4 types of Whiskey including Green Spot, Red Breast, Powers and Jameson Black Barrel. Though all were good whiskey by their own right, I thoroughly enjoyed Green Spot (That's why I'm searching here). Drink long, live often

I am not an avid whiskey drinker, but after a young Irish bartender in Galway turned us on to Greenspot I fell in love. Thank God for the Whisky Exchange so I can still get it!

The unicorn of Irish whiskeys. If you're lucky enough to find it, have one or three. Simply the best!

It's the finest Irish I've ever tasted, and I wish it were available in Caifornia, although given the price, perhaps it's better that it's not available.

- Arthur Gibson, 22nd Mar '11
By far the best whiskey I have ever tasted. Pure and delicious. Worth a trip to Ireland to get a few bottles.
- noneenator california, 16th Feb '11
I love this whiskey. It is smooth and mellow, but distinctive. Warm honey notes, a waxy feel and quite complex.
- Danny Hughes, 21st Jan '11
If God drinks whiskey------then He drinks Greenspot. This whiskey validates my belief that God drinks.

At first I was very disappointed with this one. My first dram was almost tasteless and reminded me of a dull version of Jameson. But after the bottle had been opened and it was given time to settle and open up the "green" notes startet to appear. A fabulous Irish pot still whiskey with menthol, eucalyptus, spice and a touch of sherry. TRY IT!

Recommended to us by a shop owner in Galway during a recent visit. Fabulous stuff. VERY drinkable
- Tom G, Boston, Mass., 2nd Dec '10
A very good Irish whiskey. Quite unusual, those menthol notes blow my mind! Stands out a mile from the crowd.
- Nick L, 3rd Aug '10
Another legendary Irish whskey which is difficult to find and which is too wonderful for words to describe.
- Michael,Belfast, 10th Dec '09
The aroma is delicate yet deep and complex with the Malt and Barley perfectly balanced supported by grassy, citrus notes. The taste is smooth and mellow and is simply one of the best whiskies I have ever tasted. My cabinet is never without a bottle of this.
- Martin Shillitoe, 13th Oct '09
The best Irish Whiskey I have tasted so far! I highly recommend this one.
- Tom S., 2nd Sep '09
Superb and subtle whiskey. To be drunk neat. Ultra-smooth.
