This historic single pot still Irish whiskey used only to be available in Dublin grocer Mitchell's, but now has spread across the world to huge acclaim. A delightful combination of fruit, toffee and malt.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Toffee and malt dominate, but still rather lean and clean, with a smattering of apple and pear.

    Palate: Soft on the palate, with chewy maltiness, and gentle fruit.

    Finish: Quite short, but lovely balance between the fruit and malt.

    "Nose" (undiluted) Oranges, slices of green apple, ginger. "Palate" (undiluted) Spiced apple and pears, sesame brittle, sherry, melon and classic Irish whiskey oiliness with a nutty hint. Herbaceous and complex! "Finish" (undiluted) Clean lemons, honey and more orient spices.

    Just had a bottle of this for Father''s Day , my son knows that I prefer Irish whiskey and this was a great choice. From the Middleton distillery in Ireland, a fantastic drink with a great taste. If your fan of the Irish stuff give this one a try you won''t be disappointed.

    I like the Green Spot because it brings out the honeyed bitter sweet side of pot still whiskeys. Red Breasts are great, but sometimes the sherried sweetness in the late palate is too intense. I think Green Spot is matured mainly in bourbon casks and in this case it brings out more complexity.

    I didn''t even know whiskey could taste like this... Amazing pear and sweet green apple notes and a mouthfeel that can only be described as creamy custard.

    Good traditional Pot Still with plenty of heritage. I''m still trying to get used to the new version but glad it''s out there.

    My new favorite, I love Irish whiskey,Powers, Red Breast, Jameson Reserve Black Barrel,Middleton but this is by far the best I''ve had so far.

  • Glen Huff, Seattle WA 4 March 2013

    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

  • Anonymous 3 May 2012

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

  • Jim, 1st of May 2012 1 May 2012

    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.

  • M. Ozdamar 8 February 2012

    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.

  • C Millen, Co. Sligo 25 November 2011

    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.

  • bobby 9 November 2011

    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.

  • Martin Shillitoe 6 November 2011

    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

  • Anonymous 3 November 2011

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

  • i busch 2 November 2011
