Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Lemon cheesecake, (yellow) Jelly Babies, butterscotch, barley, butter and cinnamon.

    Palate: Lots of grain, starting sweet and slowly turning spicy and gently sour. With that comes buttered toast, layered with grape jam, nutmeg, clove, lemon zest and fruit gums, with spicy liquorice root sat at the back.

    Finish: Apple skin turning sweeter, through fresh apple to stewed and spicy compote. It ends at Jolly Ranchers, with a touch of spicy rye bread.

    Comment: Classically fruity pot-still whiskey, with some grape-sweetness behind the more tropical and orchard fruits. Well-balanced spice and citrus notes.

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Pronounced aromas of fruit, barley and toffee – this isn’t shy.

    Palate: Well-balanced notes of juicy, appley fruit and sweet grains and barley, seasoned with toast and spice. Very appealing and very easy to drink.

    Finish: The sweet spice persists after the soft fruit disappears.

    First experience with this at McDermotts pub in Doolin as recommended by Colin. Vanilla caramel with hint of lemon first impression. Mid palate spice came through with incredibly smooth unctuous finish similar to Apple taffy candy. Very enjoyable.

    Way out of my league, but it was a treat and oh so worthwhile. Ripe black cherry, lingering butterscotch candy, fresh vanilla, and oil smoke.

    Beautiful whiskey. I couldn''t recommend it enough. Complexity of flavour and quality of Pot Still. A great ambassador for the Irish whisky industry.

    Very smooth. Needs no spoiling with water. Now I have to hide this bottle and offer my visitors Jameson 12 year old. Yellow Spot hits the spot!

    Fruity and spicy with a that nice creamy texture you get from pot still whiskey, I do have a complaint though, the complaint being that it seemed quite spirity at first but once I got half way through the bottle this whiskey really came to life,and really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it, glad to see Ireland embracing their heritage and producing some high quality whiskey again.

    If you want good whiskey, you drink Irish whiskey, if you want great whiskey you drink Yellow Spot - It does get a bit dangerous as it's so smooth you don't think it packs the punch - Craic

    Compared last night against The Glenlivet 18yr and The Glenrothes Select Reserve all bought for my birthday ---streets ahead straight -- even better with a thimble of water !!

    This is a fantastic Irish whiskey; I don't anticipate it will be on the shelves here for very long.
