  1. Official tasting note

    Green Spot Chateau Montelena is the 2nd edition of the Wine Geese series, following Green Spot Chateau Leoville Barton, released in 2015.

    Initially matured in traditional sherry and bourbon casks, Green Spot Chateau Montelena was then finished for 12 months in French oak Zinfandel wine casks, from the prestigious Chateau Montelena in Napa Valley.Celebrating an Irish heritage, the collaboration between Green Spot and Chateau Montelena is not just the coming together of two unique stories, it's also the fusion of two unique histories that as one deliver an exceptional whiskey - Green Spot Chateau Montelena Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey.
    • Nose
      Crisp oak combines with the soft sweetness of vanilla, white chocolate and marshmallow, balanced with signature Green Spot red apples and ripe pears, along with pomegranate, cranberries and maraschino cherries, the contribution of the wine cask.
    • Taste
      Sweet mouth coating takes on a dry note thanks to the effect of the wine cask. Pot still spices subside with zesty citrus leading to ripe orchard fruit and red berries. A touch of marzipan and toasted oak add to the complexity.
    • Finish
      Satisfyingly long with pot still spices in harmony with the delicate dry wine contribution.
