Green Spot Irish Whiskey Quails’ Gate Edition
Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Quail’s Gate is matured in American bourbon and sherry casks and then finished in casks previously filled with wine from the renowned Quails’ Gate Winery.
Nose: Vibrant oak fused with notes of ripe cherry and fresh, juicy raspberry, elevated by the wine seasoning. These aromas are in balance with Green Spot’s signature orchard fruits of apple and sweet pear. The earthy, woodland spices lend themselves to the deep and complex characteristics found interwoven amongst the sweet vanilla and red wine bouquet.
Taste: it begins with a silky and sweet mouth-coating texture, with the wine’s soft tannins gradually showing their presence. Notes of dried cranberries and red apple follow, adding to the ever-expanding array of fruits in this wonderfully complex whiskey. Clove spice and grated nutmeg work in balance with succulent fruits, seasoned oak, and crisp barley.
Finish: The toasted wood and pot still spices gently fade, with the fruits and red wine seasoning taking the final bow.
