Yellow Spot Irish Whiskey Pot Still 12 Year 750ml
A second entry into the 'Spot' range, aged for 12 years and made up in part from spirit matured in Malaga casks for a sweet and moreish dram.
Nose: Lemon cheesecake, (yellow) Jelly Babies, butterscotch, barley, butter and cinnamon.
Palate: Lots of grain, starting sweet and slowly turning spicy and gently sour. With that comes buttered toast, layered with grape jam, nutmeg, clove, lemon zest and fruit gums, with spicy liquorice root sat at the back.
Finish: Apple skin turning sweeter, through fresh apple to stewed and spicy compote. It ends at Jolly Ranchers, with a touch of spicy rye bread.
Comment: Classically fruity pot-still whiskey, with some grape-sweetness behind the more tropical and orchard fruits. Well-balanced spice and citrus notes.
