Green Spot, 40%
Price: $50 ● Issue: Summer 2014 ● Reviewer: Jonny McCormick
Roll out the red carpet, because Green Spot is coming to town. Baked apple, spiced sultanas, lush green lawns, and ripe green fruits greet the nose. It's oily, smothering, and luxuriantly juicy, with a depth of character that tips over the back of the tongue like nectar. That mélange of light vanilla, butterscotch, and creamy rice pudding sprinkled with nutmeg is heavenly. If this doesn't persuade you to fall in love with Irish pot still whiskey, then nothing will.
