Irish: Green Spot Leoville Barton

Introduced in the 1920s, Green Spot is part of the Pernod Ricard brand. 

The Leoville Barton is a blend of 7-10 year old malt but is not a traditional Irish whiskey as there is no added grain in the blend. Produced in a pot still, the whiskeys that make up the blend are comprised of 75% bourbon and 25% sherry. The Leoville Barton spends 18 months finishing in Bordeaux barrels prior to bottling and produces a run limited to 12,000 bottles world-wide.

  • Age: NAS
  • ABV: 46 %
  • Cask(s): 75% bourbon, 25% sherry. Finished 18 months in Bordeaux cask.
  • Nose: While delicate, there’s definitely a hint of alcohol burn on the nose. Push past that and you’ll encounter grass and honey.
  • Palate: There’s a light sherry flavouring dominated by spice, molasses and apples.
  • Finish: I found the finish to be strong, quick, and immature (alcohol burn at the back of the tongue). Noel begs to disagree as he described the finish as long and fruity.
  • Price: $89
