In 1805, the Mitchell Merchant family commenced trading at 10 Grafton St. in the heart of Dublin city as purveyors of wines and fortified wines. Eventually, they entered the whiskey bonding business and sold a range of whiskeys under their “spot” brand name. This odd way of naming whisky originated from their practice of marking casks of different ages with a spot of colored paint, with each color representing a particular age. These whiskeys are now produced at Midleton Distillery and are all pot still style whiskeys with a mixture of malted and unmalted barley, triple distilled.
This single-pot still whiskey has been matured for 12 years in a combination of American Bourbon, Spanish Sherry, and Spanish Malaga Casks.
Brand Tasting Notes:
Nose: Mown hay, cracked black pepper. Red bell peppers, nutmeg, clove oil, and green tea. Sweet honey & peaches from the Malaga casks.
Palate: Honey sweetness with pot still spices. Flavors of fresh coffee, creamy milk chocolate, and creme brulee.
Finish: Sophisticated and complex, sweetness throughout with a mix of red grape and dry barley.
