  2. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    It’s a sweet, light with apples notes and big part of grain whiskey. But Green spot is an easy to drink and tasty. Yes, its has some sharpness in the palate, which is typical for Irish whiskey, but this isn’t spoil it.

    The nose is much better than the mouth.
    • Nose
      Sweet&sour, perfume. Develops into cherry pits/stones. Nuts.
    • Taste
      Feels flat on the palate. Some vanilla, caramel and some nuttiness.
    • Finish
      very short

  5. LordBellamy scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nose: crisp barley, sugar sweetness / light honey, vanilla, subtle light fruit, quite strong oak with a lot of spice Taste: light fruit, caramel, oak is more restrained, later barley with some marzipan Finish: rather short, barley with oak and some sweetness Conclusion: easy all-rounder, finally nothing exciting - 80 points

  7. AlecM scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Nose: menthol hit first off then get honey

    Taste: honey, touch of menthol and spices coming through.

    Finish: spices and honey and pot still really kicks in.

    Quite light in body, and an absolute corker.

  8. Willie JJ scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A great dram
    • Nose
      Oily and weighty. There's cereal on the nose with cooked mash and a little grist. Oranges too.
    • Taste
      There is a little fruit here but its more nutty and malty.
    • Finish
      Wonderful finish. Not the longest but really mouthwatering and delicious. 

  9. alectron scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      fresh wet oak planks, cereal/grist, some vanilla, green pear, mineral/pebbles, (77)
      A bit later: more diverse wood & spices, distant yellow fruit (apricots, mirabelles, not quite ripe), (79)
      Later: opens up nicely, turns sweeter, now with some white chocolate, the fruits have ripened and there's some pineapple as well. (83)
    • Taste
      cool feel to it, grainy, (78)
      Later: more sweetness, more vanilla (syrup even, taste, not consistency), white chocolate, (84)
    • Finish
      bright wood, mellowing out, showing a few fruits - peach & oranges, (81)
      Later: increased sweetness on the palate seems to shorten it a bit, but mellows out nicely & there's some dried pineapple notes at the end as well. (82)

  10. Medea scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    There is now a successor with a completely different design, which differs quite a bit from the old pictured here and get a little bit more from me.
    The current one is incredibly soft and fruity.
    Both not very complex, but wonderfully tasty.
    Entry drug ;-)
