Blue Spot 7 year old, 58.7%

Price: $85 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




Spot whiskeys inhabit a flavor profile between Redbreast's fruitiness and Powers' muscularity, and this feisty newcomer completes the family with its nose of baked apple, spiced nuts, toffee, very crisp spices, and cool mint. The creamy palate of melted toffee and condensed milk layers on tangy citrus, bitter peels, baked lemon, apple, dried cherry, and walnut, with peppery pot still spices running amok at full strength.
