Distillery Notes:
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:
Mown hay & cracked black pepper. Red bell peppers, nutmeg, clove oil & green tea. Sweet honey & peaches from the Malaga casks.
Taste: Honey sweetness with pot still spices. Flavours of fresh coffee, creamy milk chocolate & Creme Brulee. Notes of red apples & toasted oak.
Finish: Sophisticated & complex. Sweetness throughout with a mix of red grape & dry barley upon exit.

"Toasted grain, clove, lanolin, apricot, and cashew butter aromas dominate the nose with undercurrents of oregano and white tea. Luxurious on the palate, with notes of peaches in cream, cocoa nibs, and red raspberries before warm cereal and apple blossom honey on the finish."

96 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2022
"An excellent and descriptive narrative, with beautifully integrated aromas of pineapple, marzipan, and vanilla on the nose, weaving into layers of succulent dried sultanas, golden syrup and baking spices on the palate. Full bodied, balanced, with a long resounding finish."
