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.

There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first spirits ever made.

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.

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.

I'll add a glowing review to this list. Just as smooth as it gets and a wonderful finish. I liken it to Jameson Gold. Definitely pick up a bottle of this and give it a try!

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

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.

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.
