    Re: Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish - Today

    I fully agree (except I think the Jameson may have some older whiskey in there)! Those are my two favourite Irish whiskeys, period.

    Re: Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish - Today

    No doubt they did. Green Spot, Yellow Spot, Redbreast, Powers John's Lane and Legacy are all Middleton bottlings. I don't know if anyone else puts out a Single Pot Still Whiskey at the moment.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Re: Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish - Today

    I bought this last time it was available at the LCBO 3 years ago and I think I paid $100 for it.

    I didn't find it worth it at that time but I would probably try it again at this price point.

    Re: Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish - Today

    Gary, I couldn't agree more. Of the 15+ years I've been drinking Irish whiskey Green Spot is the most inconsisent I've had. The current interation is much improved over prior offerings but it still falls behind Redbreast for me and RB has been very consistent.

    Not yet but new Irish distilleries are cropping up (one being set up by the Teelings who previously owned Cooley) that plan on doing Single Pot Still Whiskey to challenge Midleton's dominance. Also Finger Lakes just released what is probably the first single pot still whiskey to be made in the United States.

    I look forward to the new distilleries but of course it will be a long time before any fully aged spirits will be available from distilleries opening now. Kilbeggan is probably closest to putting a full time spirit on the market with a reported timetable of 2014. Since they reopened in about 2007 it will be a fairly young whiskey still. West Cork is another that I am aware of that has opened recently. No doubt there are others as well.

    Teeling has talked of opening a new distillery in Dublin and is currently doing several interesting sounding sourced whiskeys. But nothing seems likely to cross the pond anytime soon and having it shipped seems to be going up in price faster than the whiskey itself!

    Re: Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish - Today

    Outside of the Spots, what other Irish Whiskey only available in and around Ireland could anyone recommend? My brother is there now and I have him out hunting for me. Thanks for any advice!

    Even simply difficult to find suggestions are welcome too. Our Irish selection in KY seems fairly limited.
