Yellow Spot whiskey was last seen in Ireland in the mid to late 1960s. Created and sold by Mitchell & Son Wine and Spirit Merchants, Yellow Spot was always a 12 year old whiskey which was slightly sweet due to the inclusion of some single pot still spirit which was matured in Spanish Malaga wine casks. Inspired by the original, Yellow Spot is the rare taste of a bonder’s style Pot Still Irish whiskey. Maturation in Bourbon barrels, Sherry butts and Malaga casks creates a superbly complex whiskey with fresh and sweet top notes.

Tasting Notes

Nose- Floral at first with some straw, grassy like feel. With time comes the sweetness: toffee, honey and even a nice cinnamon roll note. Sweet, big cereal notes. All around lovely presentation with some peach/apricot touches.

Taste- Straight honey shot. Nice sweetness with flavors of fresh coffee, creamy milk chocolate and Creme Brulee.

Finish- Great display. Honey again but with milk chocolate, dry barley and dried fruits. Medium length.

Comments – A very complete whiskey, Balance in all categories. Not robust, but flavor wise very elegant for the higher end. More Irish whiskey should be like this.
