Green Spot Chateau Montelena Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey
Today, Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey continues to be crafted in the heart of Ireland. The whiskey is made from malted and unmalted barley, which are milled and mashed before being distilled through a traditional pot still. Following distillation, the whiskey is matured in a combination of American oak casks that were previously used to mature bourbon (75%) and European oak casks that were previously used to mature sherry (25%). Once the whiskey has matured for eight to nine years, the casks are blended together and brought to proof.
"Pot Still Whiskeys define the traditional flavor character of Irish whiskey and we have seen a renewed interest and growth in the category over the last few years," says Brian Nation, the master distiller at Midleton Distillery, which makes Green Spot Whiskey. Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey has an aroma of butterscotch, caramel, honeyed oak, pine and orange that gives way to notes of citrus, tart apples, plums and apricots on the palate. The finish is smooth yet slightly spicy, with a touch of cinnamon and ginger.
This Green Spot edition comes from an inspired series that uses Montelena Zinfandel barrels to finish the Green Spot whiskey. These barrels impart a unique spicy berry notes to the already fruit-heavy whiskey. Green Spot Chateau Montelena is the 2nd release of the Wine Geese series, which was released in 2015 when Green Spot Chateau Léoville Barton was launched. Chateau Montelena is crafted from a blend of 7 to 10 year old whiskeys. Before being finished for one year in French oak Zinfandel casks sourced from Chateau Montelena.
