Yellow Spot 12 Year Old Single Pot Still

70 cl

Yellow Spot was perhaps one of the most eagerly awaited new releases from Irish Distillers in recent years. This is the recreation of an old brand that once was partnered by Green Spot and Blue Spot whiskeys. The pot still content in Yellow Spot is medium weight, similar to Green Spot but aged for at least 12 years. Interestingly it is drawn from three types of casks. Ex-bourbon and sherry casks are supplemented by some Malaga casks that previously held Pedro Ximenez wine. These PX casks add a good bit of weight, body and flavour, giving an extra dimension to the whiskey. Yellow Spot still retains some of the signature freshness that Green Spot has but offers a definite step up in quality and complexity. It's part of Midleton Distillery's commitment to single pot still whiskey, which is garnering more and more fans around the world as they cotton on to unique qualities of the most traditional of Irish whiskey styles.
