Distillery Notes:

Green Spot Quails' Gate is the third edition in the Wine Geese series. Matured in American oak and ex-sherry casks, the liquid was then finished for 16 months in Pinot Noir casks to impart a delicate red wine bouquet to the nose, with notes of ripe cherry and juicy raspberries.

Having made their long journey across the Atlantic ocean to Ireland, the ex-Pinot Noir casks from Canada's Quails’ Gate were filled with Green Spot. These were left to mature further for approximately 16 months in Midleton Distillery’s famous warehouses. The whiskey was tasted monthly to ensure that the perfect marriage of Still Pot whiskey, wine notes and wood was achieved.

Celebrating Irish heritage, the collaboration between Green Spot and Quails’ Gate is not just the coming together of two unique stories, it is the fusion of two fascinating histories that as one deliver an exceptional whiskey.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Vibrant oak fused with notes of ripe cherry and fresh, juicy raspberry, elevated by the wine seasoning. These aromas are in balance with Green Spot’s signature orchard fruits of apple and sweet pear. The earthy, woodland spices lend themselves to the deep and complex characteristics found interwoven amongst the sweet vanilla and red wine bouquet.

Taste: It begins with a silky and sweet mouthcoating texture, with the wine`s soft tannins gradually showing their presence. Notes of dried cranberries and red apple follow, adding to the ever expanding array of fruits in this wonderfully complex whiskey. Clove spice and grated nutmeg work in balance with the succulent fruits, seasoned oak and crisp barley.

Finish: The toasted wood and pot still spices gently fade, with the fruits and red wine seasoning taking the final bow.

"This Green Spot expression is the third bottling in its Wine Geese Series, a tribute to the Irish diaspora. It’s finished for 16 months in pinot noir casks from British Columbia winemaker Quails’ Gate, owned by the Stewart family, whose ancestors emigrated from Ireland to Canada over a century ago. There’s nice spiciness on the nose, followed by a palate of abundant spice flavors along with red apple, cherry, berries, candied orange, lemon, and vanilla. The spice isn’t quite done yet, as it punctuates a pleasantly balanced finish."
