The Spot whiskeys have long been pillars of the Irish whiskey scene – and the Red Spot is carries this tradition on. The naming convention originated from colours used to mark casks of different ages, where each one would get a spot of particular colour.
This Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey has matured for over 15 years in a combination of American Bourbon casks, Spanish sherry butts and Sicilian Marsala wine casks, all contributing rich and complex flavours, making it the top spot in the range.
Nose: Pot Still Spices with Rich Cooked Fruit, Baked Apple, Mango and Black Cherry. Hazelnut and a hint of new Leather with Toasted American Oak
Palate: Ripe Fruit Sweetness from the Marsala seasoned wine casks.
Finish: Sweet Red Pepper and Cracked Black Pepper, finished by notes of American Oak and Barley.
