Green Spot 1991 26 Year Old Marsala Cask TWE Exclusive 40ml

95.00

Description

  • A very special bottling, selected by and exclusive to The Whisky Exchange: a single cask of 26-year-old Green Spot pot still whiskey, distilled at Midleton and filled into cask on 18 October 1991. It was initially matured in bourbon and sherry casks before the spirit was reracked into a single Marsala butt for further maturation. The result brings together the fresh fruit flavors of bourbon-cask maturation with the richer dried fruit notes you get from sherry casks and stirs them both together with fragrant Marsala and classic Irish pot-still fruit and spice.

    • NOSE

      Brown sugar, papaya, barley sugar and cigar boxes – a wide ranging hint of things to come. Fragrant oak and fruit are wrapped around a core of mixed peel. More fruit sits underneath: sultanas, raisins, apricots, peaches and crunchy pears. Butter, vanilla toffee, anise and baking spices float around above.

    • PALATE

      Spiced fruit cake gallops across the palate pulling a wagon of fruit: gummi chews and wine gums, stewed apples and pears, and a touch of apricot. Darker notes of spiced shortbread and cocoa powder develop, with hints of black liquorice. The fruity core remains, with candied fruit notes building.

    • FINISH

      Sharp fruit and spice fade to leave chocolate brownies and wine-gum fruitiness.

    • COMMENT

      Fragrant, elegant and complex. The three types of cask have done their bit and layered fruit and spice on top of the rich pot-still spirit. One to contemplate.
