Red Spot 15 Year Old Irish Whiskey Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
Nose: Spiced butter, ginger bread, butter icing, hints of mint and underlying rich fruitiness – sultanas and raisin jam. Spiced cake batter and mixed peel follow, with candied lemon notes developing.
Palate: Rich and thick on the palate, with spiced caramel and hints of barrel char bitterness. Toffee and sultanas build, with more gingerbread, stewed orchard fruit and soft spice.
Finish: Butterscotch and spiced fruitcake fade to leave sweet muscat grape skins and rich baked apple.
Comment: The top of the Spots, with more weight, more age and more complexity than its younger siblings. It still has the Spot-y elegance, but also extra oomph from the age and casks.
