  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 85 points Administrator

    Using a combination of malted and unmalted barley, Green Spot is a prime example of triple distilled, traditional Irish Pot Still whiskey. Sweet apple cake, freshly cut grass and cereals feature prominently on the nose, and there are hints of pineapple, avocado and burnt cookies. After a light and floral arrival, the taste develops more grainy and yeasty with peach juice, fine spices and a touch of lemongrass. It's a bit thin and watery at times. The finish is moderate but altogether pleasant with mild oak, vanilla and licorice. This stuff is dangerously drinkable!

    • Nose
      Fresh, crisp green apple. Very creamy on the nose, for the abv it is surprisingly deep and layered. Warm and rich, bread soaked in sherry/red fruits
    • Taste
      Creamy, even milky, measured sherry dryness. Coconut milk.

    Tasted at Tunsberg Whiskey Festival.
    As a light an clean refreshment I guess it's OK.
    My disappointment is most likely due to higher expectations from online reviews.
    • Nose
      78 78
      A very sweet and fruity fresh nose.
      Green apples, citrus, a bit of vanilla and very gentle spice.
      Inviting nose.
    • Taste
      74 74
      Some of the sweet fruit is carried over into the taste, very little of the freshness.
      I found it to be thin, watery and borderline dull.
    • Finish
      70 70
      Extremely short with just some sugary sweetness.

  4. ctu scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    The nose is very pleasant for an irish SPS, but I expected a little better for the sum.
    • Nose
      Floral. Green apple peel, virgin mojito, apricot jam, citruses, spices and varnished wood.
    • Taste
      Soft and slightly thin. Green apple, spicy oak, vanilla and grain.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, fruity.

  5. Defeatless scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Quite a good Irish potstill whiskey. Not top of the shelf, but rather good stuff and a recommended daily dram.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A lot of sweet notes, caramel, fudge and some vanilla ice-cream. It is a bit delicate, but that's normal. There is a hint of freshness in the background, but it's only little.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, creamy, caramel, vanilla, again the ice-cream. A biscuit. Touch of leather and wood.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium length. Very much caramel, hint of flowers, very friendly. Hint of chocolate, tiny bit of laurel. Fades away with some wood notes.

    • Taste
      spicy, fruity, sweet (honey), cereals, malt, vanilla;
    • Finish
      medium long spicy turn; slightly bitter in the aftermath;
