After fifty years, Red Spot Irish Whiskey returns to raves.
 
Mitchel & Sons started as a bakery and pastry shop in Dublin back in 1805. By 1887 they had expanded into Wine imports. And since they imported wine by the barrel, once they bottled the Wine, it was natural for them to get into the business of aging Whiskey. Now that’s all they do. It’s a complicated arrangement — Jameson’s does their distilling, but they do their everything else. This includes purchasing the finest casts, aging, vatting, and so on under the Irish Distillers nameplate — a division of industry giant Pernod Ricard
 
If you are a fan of Irish Whiskey, then this will be exciting news. Red Spot Irish Whiskey hasn’t been made in fifty years. But with the increasing demand for premium Irish Whiskies, Mitchel & Sons have brought back the twelve year old Yellow Spot in 2012. And since that relaunch was so successful, they immediately planned to bring back the king of the line — Red Spot — which came to fruition in November of 2018. True to the original formula, Red Spot is their signature Pot Still Irish Whiskey aged a full fifteen years in a combination of Bourbon, Oloroso Sherry, and Marsala Wine casks. And it is a delectable wonder to behold. 
 
Smartass corner:
Originally there was a range of “Spot” Whiskies — identified by a blob of colored paint on the barrel. There was 7-year old Blue Spot, 10 year old Green Spot, 12 year old Yellow Spot, and 15 year old Red Spot. But 10 year old Green Spot was the most popular and the only one to remain in continuous production.

Irish Whiskey became the most prominent Whiskey and most popular spirit in the 19th century because of the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.

Richard,
It's a little too one-note for my taste. You get the standard bread note Irish is famous for, but it doesn't offer much else. Personally, I prefer both the green and yellow spot to this, especially for the price.

Outstanding overall experience. Melt in your mouth goodness - fantastic representation of Irish pot still. The sherry notes are just right - a harmonious balance! I highly recommend this whiskey.
