When the Mitchell household in Eire started bonding whiskey 135 years in the past, they introduced their very own vibrant legacy to the Dublin whiskey scene. After generations of a household enterprise protecting all the pieces from confectionery to cafes to imported wines, when the Mitchells introduced their power to whiskey bonding, the Spot household was born. To have fun this enduring relationship, a newcomer – Gold Spot.

Gold Spot is matured for no less than 9 years in bourbon barrels, sherry butts, bordeaux wine casks and port pipes, is {that a} file variety of casks? Gold spot is non chill filtered and bottled at 51.4% ABV for a whiskey that’s advanced and full flavoured.  It has a light-weight mixture of pineapple, kiwi, inexperienced banana and lime zest adopted by pot nonetheless spices, baked apple, hazelnut and toasted wooden. There’s a easy mouthfeel with a refined mixture of fruit, a touch of clove and cracked black pepper corns. Then there’s candy spices, vanilla and cinnamon add to the wooden’s nutty contribution for an enduring and distinctly palatable steadiness of unique fruits and spices.

Gold Spot is the primary member of the Spot household to include a port matured ingredient. Nonetheless it’s not Mitchell & Son’s first foray into this well-known fortified wine from the Douro Valley, up till the 1960’s the household bottled their very own Classic Port. Now then, why Gold? It isn’t a giant age, when will we see the Black Spot? Are there too many Spots? Do you assume there are too many, spoiling your selection?

For instance; Blue Spot was derived from the Mitchell’s apply of marking their maturing casks of whiskey with a daub of colored paint to find out the age potential of the whiskey. Blue Spot was a  7 yr previous whiskey, Inexperienced Spot (10 yr previous), Yellow Spot (12 Yr Previous) and Purple Spot (15 yr previous).    So would you not assume, like I did, {that a} Gold Spot was the highest creation, older than the remainder? Confused? So am I .
