WINNER! World's Best Single Pot Still Whiskey!
-World Whiskies Awards
Their origins rooted in history, two stories of Irish endeavour and enterprise intertwine and together are the inspiration for this special edition whiskey - Green Spot Chateau Leoville Barton. Initially matured in traditional sherry and bourbon casks, Green Spot Chateau Leoville Barton was then finished in French oak wine casks, adding an exciting new dimension to this Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey already renowned for its excellent quality.
Celebrating an Irish heritage, the collaboration between Green Spot and Chateau Leoville Barton is not just the coming together of two unique stories, it is the fusion of two unique histories that as one deliver an exceptional whiskey.
Nose: It is the contribution of the French oak which drives the initial aroma adding some crisp woodland notes to the spicy Single Pot Still character. The wine seasoning brings a delicate touch of floral perfume and a hint of ripe berries such as raspberries and strawberries, these are in addition to the orchard fruits typical of Green Spot.
Taste: The familiar mouth coating effect is a very satisfying balance of oak and spices. Some vanilla sweetness works in harmony with the dry wine influence, while the fresh orchard fruits and French oak combine effortlessly with barley grains to complete the complexity.
Finish: The rich French oak character is slow to fade leaving the wine and spices of France and Ireland with the last word.
