Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Review

As a reward to myself for being an awesome husband, I decided to try some Irish Whisky at our favourite Irish pub near the convention center, the Overdraught. And since it’s so hard to get, I ordered the Green Spot single pot still Irish whiskey. Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

Well, that’s not true. In fact I wanted to order the Connemara Peated Single Malt Irish Whiskey, though they were out, so I went for a normally very pricey Irish (in Ontario).

Green Spot is a blend of 8 and 9 year old single pot still Irish whiskey, 25% of which are matured in sherry casks. It’s somewhat rare, as only 500 cases are made a year, so keep an eye out for it.


Bushmills 16 Single Malt – The Whiskey that Thinks it’s a Whisky

Bushmills Single Malt Irish Whiskey 16 Year Old

40%ABV – $66.00USD

Background – This is an Irish single malt offering from Bushmills that is aged in 3 steps. For 16 years their spirit is matured in bourbon and oloroso sherry casks and then transfered to port wine barrels for an undisclosed period of time. While the 10 year is just awful in comparison, the 16 is a real standout in Bushmill’s lineup.


Not My Favorite Irishman – Bushmills 10 Single Malt

ABV: 40%

  • Colour: Golden Amber
  • Nose: Light. First impressions are Grains (Malt, Toast with Margarine), Straw/Hay and Dried Fruits (Raisins and Sultanas) followed by Nuts, Oak, light Fruity tones (Apple, Banana with light Honey, White Grapes and Coconuts), Milk Chocolate, Lemon Peel and the faintest hint of Sherry. Grains are rather dominating the Nose. The other flavours, while not unpleasant, are rather understated for a 10 Year old Single Malt.
