Yellow Spot 12 Year Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
Rather than being simply a ‘finished’ whiskey, Yellow Spot is special in that it contains whiskey that has been matured for a full 12 year period in three oak cask types: American bourbon barrels, Spanish sherry butts, and uniquely, Spanish Malaga casks.
The nose opens with mown hay & cracked black pepper. Red bell peppers, nutmeg, clove oil & green tea follow behind, with sweet honey & peaches from the Malaga casks. The palate shows honey sweetness with pot still spices. Flavours of fresh coffee, creamy milk chocolate & Crème Brûlée develop in the midpalate, along with notes of red apples & toasted oak. Its finish is sophisticated & complex with a sweetness throughout, followed by a mix of red grape & dry barley upon exit. Bottled at 46% abv.
