Spot Whiskeys will be releasing a limited-edition Gold Spot Irish Whiskey to celebrate the 135th anniversary of the Mitchell family’s whiskey bonding tradition, according to labels submitted to the TTB.
Matured for at least nine years in Bourbon barrels, Sherry butts, Bordeaux wine casks, and Port pipes, Gold Spot Irish Whiskey 135th Anniversary is bottled non chill-filtered at 51.4% ABV.
The nose opens with a bouquet of autumnal berries that develop into notes of apple and pear before evolving into rich stone fruits. These are intertwined with layers of wood spices, vanilla and perfumed wine undertones. The palate finds rich pot still spices with vibrant fruits enhanced by the delicate oak tannins and wood spices. While the sweet influences of the charred and toasted oak deliver a character that embellishes the unique mix of wine-seasoned casks. The finish is rich and lasting with the intricate nature of the wine casks and pot still spices lingering.
While information is limited at this time, we can expect an official announcement with more information, including pricing, release date, and availability, prior to launch.

Last March, Pernod Ricard USA reunited Blue Spot to the Spots Whiskey range and re-introduced the product to the United States. The reimagined cask strength Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey rejoined the iconic collection for the first time since 1960.
