Yellow Spot 13 Year Old Single Cask
Mitchell & Son are delighted to exclusively present the very first Yellow Spot Single Cask expression. A Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey aged for a minimum of 13 years, initially matured in bourbon barrels and re-casked into a Malaga cask. It is a rare taste of a true whiskey bonder’s style of whiskey – a single cask that pays tribute to a bygone age of whiskey bonding.
Nose: A wonderful medley of fruits ranging from orange zest to ripe blackcurrants, sun-dried grapes and sweet cherries. Rich notes of cinnamon spice and freshly sawn cedarwood continue to build over time along with layers of vanilla and honeycomb. The pot still spices add a light dusting of black pepper that gently lingers in the background.
Taste: Silk-like, mouthcoating texture, rich with dried fruits and treacle toffee followed by notes of floral honey with barley sugar and vanilla undertones. Nutmeg spice, ginger and cinnamon intertwine with the oak’s soft tannins, while sweet orchard fruits emerge with subtle hints of white chocolate.
Finish: Lingering and sweet - the pot still spices slowly fade, allowing the waves of dried fruits and oak to ebb and flow until the very end.
