The first in Green Spot’s Wine Geese series and the first single pot still Irish whiskey to be finished in Bordeaux wine casks. Matured initially in a combination of ex-Oloroso sherry, fresh American oak and ex-bourbon barrels, then finished for 12 to 24 months in French oak wine casks from the renowned Château Léoville Barton, Bordeaux. Bottled at 46%.
Nose: The French oak drives the initial aroma with crisp woodland notes added to the spicy pot still character. The wine seasoning brings a floral perfume and ripe berries to the archetypal orchard fruits.
Palate: The familiar mouth coating is a very satisfying balance of oak and spices. Some vanilla sweetness works in harmony with the dry orchard fruits and French oak, combining effortlessly with barley grains to complete the complexity.
Finish: The rich French oak slowly fades leaving the wine and the spices of France and Ireland with the last word.
