In 1805, the Mitchell merchant family commenced trading at 10 Grafton Street in the heart of Dublin city as purveyors of confectionery, wines and fortified wines. In time, the family entered the whiskey bonding business and sold a range of whiskeys under their "Spot" brand name. This rather peculiar name originated from their practice of marking casks of different ages with a daub or spot of coloured paint with each colour representing a particular age.
Inspired by the original Yellow Spot, this Single Pot Still Whiskey has been matured for not less than 12 years in a combination of American bourbon, Spanish sherry and Spanish Malaga casks. Drawing from the Mitchell family tradition of importing fortified wines, full term maturation in ex Malaga casks contributes exotic sweet characteristics to the whiskey.
NOSE- Mown hay and cracked black pepper. Red Bell peppers, nutmeg, clove oil and green tea. Sweet honey and peaches from the Malaga casks.
TASTE- Honey sweetness with Pot Still spices. Flavours of fresh coffee, creamy milk chocolate and creme brulee. Notes of red apples and toasted oak.
FINISH- Sophisticated and complex. Sweetness throughout, with a mix of red grape and dry barley upon exit.
Single Pot Still whiskey is unique to Ireland in general and to the Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork, in particular, and is regarded as the quintessential style of Irish whiskey. Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and then triple distilled in traditional copper pot stills, Pot Still whiskeys are characterised by full, complex flavours and a wonderful, creamy mouthfeel.
