Gold Spot 9 Year Single Pot Still
Single Pot Still — Ireland
Reviewed December 2, 2022
Been quite a time since I've submitted a review. Life and the lack of any new acquisitions have kept me away. But low and behold the luck of the Irish has smiled upon me. I never thought I'd come across this recent Mitchell and Sons release so soon and for a fair price (for my region) to boot! Let us begin. My first impression was quite satisfactory. The nose yielded a much appreciated plethora of complexities. These consisted of a mix of fresh oak, stone and tropical fruits first. As time passed, the aroma transitioned a bit to vanilla and baking spices. My palate had its work cut out, but in a positive way. A strong fruit and wood spice flavor wave took hold for a bit. After which a prominent sherry wine essence emerged and lingered onto the finish. Mouthfeel was semi oily and dry. I thoroughly enjoyed this and am currently on the lookout for the ever elusive Blue Spot. Once I succeed there, I will do a proper side by side with all the colors.
