Just returned home from the whiskey monger with a bottle of Green Spot. My first pour and I am stunned by the similarities between this and Woodford Reserve, particularly on the nose. If I had nosed this in a blind tasting, I would have called it a WR of some sort. Unfortunately, I know that this observation kills the chance that some of you will ever try Green Spot, now... Must be the pot still influence, but even that can't fully explain it, as there are other Irish that are pot still, that don't have what I'm picking up in this. Really wonderful, as I enjoy regular WR, and this is better. Maybe, WR should attempt an Irish style for their next Master's Collection...

After putting away a pretty amazing roast beef poboy, I felt something equally meaty was in order. (Waits for the dick jokes to subside). Let's go with a big pour of Ardbeg Oooooogie. This one's an L11.
For what Woodford charges they could just buy Green Spot off the shelf and rebottle it for profit. Skip the whole R&D phase.
