MITCHELL & SON GREEN SPOT QUAILS' GATE PINOT NOIR CASK FINISHED
LIMITED EDITION. Having made their long journey across the Atlantic Ocean to Ireland, the ex-Pinot Noir casks from Quails’ Gate were filled with Green Spot. These were left to mature further for approximately 16 months in Midleton Distillery’s famous warehouses. The whiskey was tasted monthly to ensure that the perfect marriage of Pot Still whiskey, wine notes and wood was achieved. Celebrating an Irish heritage, the collaboration between Green Spot and Quails’ Gate is not just the coming together of two unique stories, it is the fusion of two fascinating histories that as one deliver an exceptional whiskey.
Vibrant oak fused with notes of ripe cherry and fresh, juicy raspberry, elevated by the wine seasoning, while balanced with the Green Spot’s signature aromas of apple and sweet pear. Earthy, woodland spices lend themselves to the deep and complex characteristics found interwoven amongst the sweet vanilla and red wine bouquet.
Silky and sweet mouthcoating texture at first, while the wine’s soft tannins gradually begin to show their presence. Notes of dried cranberries and red apple add to the expanding array of fruits in this wonderfully complex whiskey with clove spice and grated nutmeg balanced by the seasoned oak and crisp barley.
The toasted wood and pot still spices slowly fade, with the fruits and red wine seasoning taking the final bow.
