Sharing a shared Irish History, this Green Spot is finished in Bordeaux Red Wine casks from the Chateau Leoville Barton.
Set in the heart of the Saint Julien appellation in Bordeaux, one of the most revered winemaking regions in the world, Léoville Barton is a grand cru Château renowned for producing world class wine. Léoville Barton is overseen today by Anthony and Lilian Barton, direct descendants of Thomas Barton, a ‘Wine Geese’ winemaker who founded a wine merchant company in 1725, after migrating from his native Ireland.
Initially matured in a traditional mix of ex-Oloroso sherry, new Bourbon and ex-Bourbon barrels the whiskeys were then transferred into the ex-Bordeaux wine casks for between 12 and 24 months. This imparted distinctive, floral flavours of varying intensity, resulting in a perfectly balanced whiskey.
"This twist on the original, finished in Bordeaux casks, shows slightly more brooding notes of plum on the nose. There’s plenty of spice on the palate, the characteristic oily texture, and ginger snap on the finish." 96 Points 2017 ultimate Spirits Challenge
