Redbreast 15, 46% ABV
Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
Gingerbread, toffee and cocoa. Cereal, cinnamon and pepper. Glace cherries, honey roasted nuts and oak spice. A bit grassy and minty. Faint metallic notes. Leather, vanilla and musk.
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.
