Yellow Spot 12 Year Old Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
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.
Nose: Mown hay and cracked black pepper. Red bell peppers, nutmeg, clove oil and green tea. Sweet honey and peaches from the Malaga casks.
Taste: Honey sweetness with pot still spices. Flavors of fresh coffee, creamy milk chocolate and Creme Brulee. Notes of red apples and toasted oak.
Finish: Sophisticated and complex. Sweetness throughout, with a mix of red grape and dry barley upon exit.
