Comparisons with the brothers Green Spot and Yellow Spot are prohibited. The Green Spot Château Léoville Barton stands independently alongside the other bottlings for Mitchell & Son and can hold its own.
The spicy and leathery notes typical of Irish Pot Still are available, but they only want to be found behind the curtain of Bordeaux wine.
Once you have captured the Pot Still character with your nose, the aromas combine with the most magnificent and discernible notes of green apple alongside milk chocolate and toffee.
Strong in the beginning with strong influence from the sherry and Bordeauxfass.
The ripening takes away a little the spiciness and oiliness, makes it more gentle and fruity, but not milder. The proportion of unmalted barley still shows on the tongue - simply unmistakable.
Oak comes over time and the chocolate from the nose shows up again.
For a long time, this Green Spot sounds like it caresses the tongue with spices and red grapes.
