Mitchell & Son’s Spot Whiskey range dates back many moons, but over time a few expressions have disappeared from shelves, including Red Spot - but those days are over. The relaunched Red Spot is a 15 year old single pot still Irish whiskey, comprised of three different whiskeys aged separately then blended. One is matured in Oloroso sherry casks, one is aged in bourbon casks, and the final one is initially aged in bourbon casks before being finished in Marsala wine casks.
Stewed berries and booze red wine, with a touch of new leather giving it a savoury edge.
Apple turnover, black pepper spiciness, caraway, blackcurrant jam, soft vanilla.
Lasting oaky warmth and a final hint of damson.
