Whisky Reviews for Green Spot Château Montelena

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.50 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I usually can not win wine finishes that much. After the Green Spot Chateau Leoville Barton, there was great hope that the subsequent bottling might be the re-launch of a Blue Spot or Red Spot. But no, still n wine finish.

    But uh, luck, the finish here has not messed up, but the nice flavors of the standard Green Spot "a little underfed".

    Nice addition to the Green Spot range. Unfortunately not yet available in Germany.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sweet-spicy with a (in a positive sense) interesting combination of ginger cookies, milk chocolate, vanilla and ripe red grapes. Oak wants to get involved, but ultimately does not prevail. On the other hand, after some time even more fruits come to the fore: blackberries, raspberries and cherries.

      The spice remains discreetly in the background or is put there by the fruit flavors and superimposed. Cinnamon is to be guessed, perhaps also still grated cloves.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Dry already in the start with grape juice, oak chips, freshly ground coffee beans and bitter honey. Slightly cooling / mentholig.

      This grape juice note is not known from the standard Green Spot, so it could come from the wine barrel. Again, the berry mix from the nose. On the tongue, however, spicy with a nice interplay of fruit and spice. Nougat chocolate and ice coffee.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long, stays cool, but it is always spicy and gets a pleasant impact of fine herbs. Nougat chocolate en masse. Also has a bit of Tiramisu in liquid.

  2. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    One of those whiskers that, once opened, is gaining in quality.

  3. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    By default, Green Spot consists of 7 - 10 year old single pot still whiskeys made from sherry and bourbon barrels. Here is a 12-month ripening in French Oak Zinfandel Wine Casks.
