WHAT: Green Spot Irish Whiskey Rating: NNNNN
WHERE: Cork, Ireland
WHY: This magnificent pot still whiskey has always been made in small quantities by Jameson for long-established Dublin wine merchants Mitchell & Son, so it's very nice to see it on the LCBO's shelves. It would be even nicer though, to see it on your own shelf. It's a lively jig (sorry) of flavours and aromas all dancing around the sweetness and spiciness of grain, oak and orchard fruit, especially apricot. Expensive, but if you only drink it on March 17, it may last for a year or two.
PRICE: 750 ml/$84.95
AVAILABILITY: At selected liquor stores (product #699827)
