This outstanding single pot still Irish whiskey has been released to celebrate the 135th anniversary of the Mitchell family's entry to the whiskey industry. Mitchell & Son are responsible for producing some of the best pot still Irish whiskey for over a century. The family business started out as a highly successful confectionary store in the 1800s - so successful, in fact, that they were given royal warrants and named "Confectioner to Her Majesty." However, in 1887, the family made the venture into whiskey bonding. Their expressions were matured in fortified wine casks in underground cellars in Dublin.  Today, the family are renowned as some of the finest whisky bonders there has ever been. Gold Spot spent at least nine years maturing in a combination of bourbon barrels, sherry butts, Bordeaux wine casks, and Port pipes. It has been bottled at a robust 51.4% abv. It is available to purchase here today at The Whisky Shop for £140 via priority access. The expression will go on general sale tomorrow, Wednesday 20th July, at 12pm. The nose has peach, dark berries, and vanilla. The palate is sweet with toasted oak and baking spices before a spicy, lingering, and sumptuous finish.
