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!

  • Anonymous 1 October 2013

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

  • Pat 2 October 2012

    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.

    Clearly Nick hasn't had red breast

  • mícheál ó c 5 June 2011

    This is how whiskey used to taste when I was a child...

  • Arthur Gibson 22 March 2011

    Quite simply the best whiskey I have ever tasted and that includes the Midleton

  • noneenator california 16 February 2011

    By far the best whiskey I have ever tasted. Pure and delicious. Worth a trip to Ireland to get a few bottles.

  • Danny Hughes 21 January 2011

    I love this whiskey. It is smooth and mellow, but distinctive. Warm honey notes, a waxy feel and quite complex.

  • John McCarthy 19 January 2011

    If God drinks whiskey------then He drinks Greenspot. This whiskey validates my belief that God drinks.

  • Anonymous 13 January 2011

    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!

  • Tom G, Boston, Mass. 2 December 2010

    Recommended to us by a shop owner in Galway during a recent visit. Fabulous stuff. VERY drinkable

  • Nick L 3 August 2010

    A very good Irish whiskey. Quite unusual, those menthol notes blow my mind! Stands out a mile from the crowd.

  • Michael,Belfast 10 December 2009

    Another legendary Irish whskey which is difficult to find and which is too wonderful for words to describe.

  • Martin Shillitoe 13 October 2009

    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.

  • Tom S. 2 September 2009

    The best Irish Whiskey I have tasted so far! I highly recommend this one.

  • Garry Lee 27 December 2008

    Superb and subtle whiskey. To be drunk neat. Ultra-smooth.
