      Simply an exceptional Irish whiskey. Wish I had Yellow or even Green Spot lying around for a comparison, but this is rich and fruity and wooden and bright.

      Earthy on the nose, light honey color. First sip you notice a mid viscosity nothing on the front mid palette is floral, lavender, lemon grass. Great long finish that is satisfying

      Nose: Very light. Crisp barley. Mouth: Rich and earthy- there a higher viscosity than the other other 'spots' (green and yellow) that I have tried - which fills the mouth. It's lightly sweet and a bit empty on the mid pallet and the finish. If smooth is what you are looking for, this may be you dram. It is extremely easy drinking and slides across the tongue with a lovely thick silky mouthfeel. That said, it lacks the complexity of a lot of whiskeys in this price range and from the comparison flavor perspective I honestly think I prefer the green spot! Glad I bought (curiosity) but I can't imagine buying another (value). Excellent without being distinctive.

      Finally was able to get my hands on this bottle. This tasting is the neck pour. Nose: butterscotch, so much butterscotch, brown sugar, some ethanol preventing me from really diving in, light honey, figs?, some light orange, there's some nuttiness that I can't identify, hazelnut maybe?, no, now I think it's walnuts... I am all over the place with this now. Barley Taste: a little smoke and barrel, front of the palate burn, sweet light fruits, maybe some fig, butterscotch, citrus, raisins Finish: getting some spice on the finish in the middle of my tongue and a mild tingling on my lips making me want to go back for more. Barrel tannins. Finish definitely tingles the middle of my tongue, but now is slightly spreading to the front of my tongue. Maybe some nuttiness - more hazelnut than walnut, wait, is that almond? I apparently need to eat more nuts, this has me all over the place. This isn't oily or drying on the palate, it's just in between the two. I prefer the oily mouth coating and am not a fan of the whiskies that dry your mouth out, so I'm content with this. I think I pick up figs on this, but my knowledge of figs is limited to fig newtons. This tasting was really interesting. I' think it could improve over time as the bottle gets some air in it. There's so much going on with the nose and the palate, and it's probably me being too amateur to pick out everything that's going on, but I'm not getting nearly as much as I had hoped on the palate or finish from a higher end whiskey. I'm also interested in adding a drop or two of water to it to see if that helps the spice die down some, but that'll have to wait for another night. I'd enjoy sharing this with friends and seeing what they think about it. 85/100 - Buying at MSRP

      You know yourself. You know what you like and dislike. I am not the fondest irish whiskey lover, i prefer scotch 99% of the time. But, if i am going for an Irish Whiskey, chances are that i am getting "a color spot". Red Spot is the 15yo expression of the amazing Yellow and Green spot, and let me tell you something, i love all of them. Bottled at 46%abv, burnished gold color. On the nose, amazingly sweet aroma. A Circus caramelized apple. Apple air freshener. Cotton candy, Sugar and... Potato liquor??. After a first sip i got cherry sweetness and Hershey's Strawberry syrup. Om the palate it is one delicious and enjoyable dram. An incredible cherry syrup note, Cotton candy; Grainy whisky in a very irish and well crafted form, and Mashed potatoes (yeah, that is the first time i got it in a whisky). Afrertasre wasn't that great without being bad at all. Maize, Apple and Sider. Overall, i really enjoyed this whiskey. I loved all about it and i surely thinknthat the aftertaste could be better, but the nose and palate are fantastic. A super enjoyable dram, my score for this one is a solid 87 over a 100, and i truly recommend it.

      N: Plum, pear, raisin, gumdrops, cherry candy, cherry cough syrup, overripe banana, toasted coconut, almond extract, sugar cookies. Little bit of petrichor in it - thought I caught it in the Yellow Spot last night, but wasn't sure. I'm certain it's in the Red. Tiny and fleeting hits of mint and ethanol. Nosing across the edges of the glass (Glencairn) reveals a really nice sour stone fruit. P: Hot, sweet, oily, and heavy, and yet nothing out of place. Sweet and sour red fruit, little bit of anise and/or black licorice, cinnamon candy, banana playing at the edges of your tongue, little bit of a bitter white tea, cracked pepper, something vegetal - not quite bell pepper, but getting there. Sweet bread drizzled with caramel and vanilla sauce. Thin layer of chocolate which sometimes hits as powdered, sometimes as milk, sometimes dark. Finish is long and layered - hot cinnamon, banana, peach, pear, little bit of lingering dark chocolate, espresso... There's significant bitterness in the finish - in the chocolate and the espresso especially. Pot still spice is there, but generally sits in the background - very unlike the Yellow, Green, or really most Irish single pot still whiskies. And there's still red fruit hanging through to the end - bits of cherry, strawberry, grape, plum, raisin - some of it fresh, some of it dried. Seriously though, this dram just keeps coming. Every pour, sometimes every sip, there's something new here. This is an incredible whiskey. That said, it's not super easy to drink: the bitterness is going to turn some people off. There is an ethanol presence that doesn't bother me at all, but some may dislike it at the price point. The herbal and vegetal notes will turn some people off. For me, I think all of that is crazy interesting and super enjoyable, both to drink and to think about how it happened. But I still don't think I'd want this every day. Green Spot holds that place for me - could drink that every day. That said, this is noticeably better and more complicated. I think it justifies its price increase. Don't pay an upcharge or a secondary market price, but normal retail (about $120) is fair for this.
