This historic single pot still Irish whiskey used only to be available in Dublin grocer Mitchell’s, but now has spread across the world to huge acclaim. A delightful combination of fruit, toffee and malt.
A 15 year old Irish single pot still whisky, comprised only of pot still whisky which has been triple distilled. Its taste and aroma is characterized by a mix of rich, succulent berries, juicy fruits, subtle spices and oak.
A simply fantastic single pot still Irish whiskey that has been incredibly well received since it’s release. This is drawn from similar casks types to the 12 and 15 year old bottlings but also from some refill casks. This 21 year old is one of our favourite Irish whiskeys of all time. It is packed with rich, spiced fruit flavours along with some surprisingly fresh barley and tropical fruit flavours.
The whiskey has been finished for a period in first fill Oloroso sherry butts for a year. The casks are sourced from the extremely prestigious Lustau bodega, who have been making high quality sherry since 1896. The result is a wonderfully flavoursome whiskey, with creamy nutty notes, some chocolate and slight liquorice flavours and some juicy fruity notes.
The period of 12 years may not be very long for a single malt whiskey, but the time for a pub whiskey is very long. In the old days it was common in Ireland that every bar had its own “house whiskey”. This tradition is now being revived by Tom Cleary. The owner of the famous Temple Bar in Dublin had the idea of bringing out a whiskey especially for his bar. Ireland fans around the world should be able to enjoy a piece of Dublin at home.

Yellow spot whiskey was last seen in Ireland in the mid to late 1960s. Created and sold by mitchell & son wine and spirit merchants yellow spot was always a 12-year-old whiskey which was slightly sweet due to the inclusion of some single pot still spirit which was matured in spanish malaga wine casks. Inspired by the original yellow spot is the rare taste of a bonder’s style pot still whiskey.
