Looks like Red Spot is on it's way

Interesting. I've read about Red Spot but never seen a bottle. Still need to try Yellow. Going on the shopping list..

Will be curious to hear what the cost will be. With Yellow Spot running at about $100 and this one 3 years older it ain’t gonna be cheap!

Probably more in line with the Middleton releases pricewise I would imagine.

The “spots” seem to be a bit more for the same age statement around here than Redbreast or Powers which are two other similar Middleton brands.We shall see!

 

Of course who knows when or if it makes it to Atlanta.

We saw a bottle of Red Spot while in Belfast (the "original" Red Spot though, and not for sale).  Glad they're bringing it back!

Love that old label and it appears to be screw cap to boot! Did it say what year it was from?

Funny you should mention this (or, more precisely, I'm pleased you articulated what I sort of had in the back of my head).  For whatever reason, I like the "differences" between the Redbreast offerings more than I like the "differences" between the Spots.  In other words, the Spots are OK, but he Redbreasts offerings, to me, are a lot of fun to taste.

It didn't, although they guy in the shop probably knows (he was walking us through the "spot" history, and the different folks that his boss had worked with over the last 50 years or so).  I'd ask, but not sure I'll ever get to Belfast again!
