The Cult One.
 
The Mitchell & Son wine merchants started their business in 1805. At first, they set up a bakery and confectionery on Dublin’s Grafton street. But with the rise of demand for Irish Whiskey in the Victorian Whiskey boom era, they soon entered the Whiskey bonding business. What they did is purchase newly made Whiskey under bond to mature and bottle it themselves, before selling it under their brand. By doing so, they evaded paying the excise tax. 
 
It’s unknown when exactly Green Spot was first produced, but by the 1920’s Mitchell & Son had bottled over 100 Sherry casks of Whiskey per year. Usually the Whiskey was matured for five years in casks by the distiller and later blended, then matured by the merchant for at least five more years, depending on the "Spot" brand name. The name comes from the practice of marking the different ages of casks with a different color. 
 
Green Spot Single Pot Still bears no age statement and is composed of Pot still Whiskeys aged from 7 to 10 years. The Whiskey has been matured in new casks and ex-Bourbon barrels, as well as the ones that contained Sherry. This much appraised drop of Irish Whiskey has become a cult favorite.

Joseph
Joseph,
This is the whiskey that turned me on to whiskey. The notes of Apple and hint of sherry play well together, making for a refreshing and balanced flavor that is easy to sip. My bar doesn’t feel complete without a bottle on hand!
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Has a lovely balance of unmalted musty notes, green apple, toasted coconut, and overall sweetness. The most interesting flavor of any Irish whiskey I've tasted while retaining the smooth, approachable character distinctive of the region.
 
Mr
Mr,

Tracy
Tracy,
Found a cross-over with a younger afficianado, not peaty/smoky for him, not to tinny for me

Donald
Donald,
A perfect Irish whisky. Smooth as the day is long
 
Andrew
Andrew,
An exceptional Irish whisky. Strong green apple on the nose. More complexity on the palette. Sweet and fruity with some coconut in there. Easy drinker at 40% but the flavors are not boring at all.
 
Holly
Holly,
One of my all time fave Irish whiskeys. Smooth with a complex but inviting flavor.
 
Ivan
Ivan,
It's very good and easy to drink. The nose is pure green apples and amazing, the palate is sweet and fruity though a bit too tannic. I would rank yellow >red> green
 
John
John,
Easy drinking. Really nice on ice.
 
Michael
Michael,
Very refreshing Irish whiskey. You wouldn’t say it aged around 7 to 10 years. The nose is maybe a bit too much of a punch though. Knowing that this was one of the favourite whiskies of Joyce, Yeats and Beckett adds to the good score. It comes with a good story!
 
Scott
Scott,
Pear and Apple on the nose. Very pleasant Irish whiskey. It is like Jameson but with all the flavors turned up to 11.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
My favorite.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Appearance: Color is amber. Decent legs... Nose: Bright with fresh apple, subtle malt, and a little of the classic pot still oiliness. Very faint oak. Minimal to no ethanol burn. Mouthwatering and inviting... Palate: First sip starts with a malty backbone, a little spice, and a subtle apple (not nearly as fresh and intense as the nose). Later in the palate the oak starts to show. Definite drop off from nose... Mouthfeel: Viscous and coating... Finish: Subtle linger of baking spice and malt... Overall: Solid, but a little disappointing that the palate and finish don’t live up to the incredible nose. Still great though!
 
Michael
Michael,
Very smooth. Not heavy on peat. Good sipping whiskey.

Lot of apple and tropical fruit on the nose. Initial taste on the palate is sweet with notes of apricot/peach with a hint of coconut which gives way to slightly spicy finish. After sipping some water, more oak came out on the finish. Very unique and easy drinker.

Josh
Josh,
One of my tops. Good flavor profile, smooth, easy. Similar to yellow. Hints of green apple.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Smooth but boring. After a few drams this bottle is consigned to mixed drinks and sharing with my wife. If you are looking to spend a similar amount of money on an Irish Whiskey, consider Redbreast.
 
Dan
Dan,
The wife's favorite. Smooth, light refreshing. Good over ice or neat.
 
Ivan
Ivan,
After a second tasting, this is very fruity on the nose and quite light.
 
Jyrki
Jyrki,
One of my favourite Irish whiskeys. You can smell and taste the apple. If you are not a whiskey drinker, this is the one to start with.
 
Juan
Juan,
I used to really love Irish whisky until I got Green Spot. Now almost every Irish Whisky has this negative tasting not to it thanks to Green Spot : -( ... This whisky has an overwhelming artificial sweetener taste. It overpowers all other flavors in my opinion. The only good thing I can say about this whisky is that I was able to taste the tropical fruits.
 
Harry
Harry,
This Irish is completely different than yellow spot. Both are great whiskeys. This was smooth and a bit spicy, and the Sherry cask comes across subtly.
 
Gary
Gary,
Great entry level Irish whiskey!
 
Darren
Darren,
It’s ok
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
a bit too harsh to my liking, go for the yellow spot. green apples, cloves, spices
 
John
John,
Pretty smooth throughout, you can taste the sherry cask not so much the bourbon barrel, hint of plums I think. Nice drawn out finish with mild heat.
 
Andrew

Eilis
Eilis,
Fine, but not stellar. Very golden and grassy and sweet, but not a lot of complexity. If given the choice, always take the Red Breast 10 yr.
 
AJ
AJ,
Nice balance of flavor, great nose, smooth to the last drop.
 
Charles
Charles,
I usually go for bourbon and American whiskeys and a few ryes. I found this to be a very light, enjoyable drink, either neat or with a cube. I highly recommend it.

This is my second bottle of Green Spot. It is always in my bar at home. It is an excellent single pot still Irish Whiskey. I like it better than Red Breast 12 yr. It is easy to drink neat. The finish is smooth and creamy with hints of vanilla.

Kyle
Kyle,
Sometimes when you can't get the thing you are really looking for, something else shows its pretty litte face, for me that was this whiskey.
 
Ron
Ron,
Outstanding whiskey, just enough of a Smokey feel to make it very interesting and set it apart from other Irish whiskeys in the market
 
Robert
Robert,
I usually enjoy Jack Daniels. I thought I would try something in the Irish Whiskey area. Once I got past the first bite, it was a sipper and relaxing for the rest of the evening. I noticed my local Liquor Store sells it now. Now I can save the shipping charges.

Lizz
Lizz,
Absolutely love the buttery-ness of this Irish whiskey. My go to when I’m feeling ‘neat’.
 
Bryan
Bryan,
This might be my favorite Irish Whisky. Apple, vanilla frosting on the nose. Pound cake, vanilla, buttery short bread cookies (biscuits) on the palate. Very smooth.
 
Matt

The best.

Mellow at first sip. Easy to drink and just what I like...but so is Bushmills for 1/3 the cost.

Complex and delicious
 
Zac
Zac,
One of my favorites. This truly turned my eyes to Irish whiskies for the first time away from most of the swill that is passed around, you know, the stuff that starts with a J.
 
guest
guest,
I first was steered toward this gem when working in Galway. I instantly loved it but until recently it was unobtainable in the U.S. so when a friend revealed a bottle I flipped. It is a spectacular and fine whiskey irrespective of origins, age, cost, blended or single malt. I strongly urge you to try it. It fascinates the nose and palate of the inexperienced as well as the informed.
 
Josh
Josh,
There is a musty, old wood note that gives me a sense of history. Young but old soul'd.
