From the company website:135 years later the Mitchell family colours shine brighter than ever. When the Mitchell family began bonding whiskey 135 years ago, they brought their own colourful legacy to the Dublin whiskey scene. After generations of a family business covering everything from confectionery to cafes to imported wines, when the Mitchells brought their eclectic energy to whiskey bonding, the Spot family was born. To celebrate this enduring relationship, we created our most vibrant Spot release to date – Gold Spot. Gold Spot is matured for at least nine years in Bourbon Barrels, Sherry Butts, Bordeaux Wine Casks and Port Pipes. Non chill filtered and bottled at 51.4% ABV for a whiskey that is complex and full flavoured.
Gold Spot Irish Whiskey overview
Gold Spot Irish Whiskey smell
Gold Spot Irish Whiskey is fruit-forward with the mix of bourbon and wine cask influence, but also has the extra oakiness and spice from the red wines that generally provides nice density. It’s somewhat held back by the stronger heat, but all in all it’s still fragrant and great.
