Blue Spot 7 Year Old

Blue Spot Irish whiskey disappeared from shelves back in the 1960s, but we are very happy to say that Blue Spot is back! Mitchell & Son has relaunched Blue Spot as a triple distilled 7 year old single pot still Irish whiskey, drawn from a combination of bourbon, sherry, and Madeira casks, bottled up at cask strength. An immensely flavoursome expression, with huge pot still character to it. Fantastic stuff.

You can find out more about Blue Spot over on our blog!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Big hit of spices on the nose, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon, followed by a medley of puddings: banana custard, apple pie, and frangipane tart.

Palate It’s a spicy one, with plenty of black and sichuan peppers. It’s full-bodied and super creamy with vanilla green apple, peaches, lemon peel and toasted hazelnuts.

Finish There’s a milk chocolate creaminess that goes on and on with fresh fruit and nuts lingering, and just a lick of rum at the end.

Reviews for Blue Spot 7 Year Old
Too strong
Any flavourings are ruined by the alcoholic punch. Unbalanced. Stick to Yellow

Bang! on the arrival
Bang! on arrival, it is cask strength after all although smoother than its abv would suggest. Pepper n spice & a smidg fusile on the arival yes then tinned fruit salad in the development, ya know the 1 with the 1/2 a cherry in it, covered in sweetened condensed milk. I do also get a kinda Milka chocolate mouth feel on the finish.

I'm adding 2tsps water to open it up but it ain't impossible to drink neat well at least after the first sip numbs u down a bit.

Overall its light n fresh but if it wer 10yr it'd be perfect imo ya kno to tame that young fusile nip a bit, maybe then I'd give it that extra star.

Incredible dram
Absolutely wonderful. In terms of cask strength single pot still this gives the Redbreast 12 CS a serious run for its money.

The madeira finish adds a lot of uniqueness, and the robustness of the middleton pot still means the core character of the whiskey is never going to be overwhelmed by a finish, just complimented by it. I would not worry about the age statement either - any youthfulness here manifests in a touch of tropical fruits as opposed to any thing harsh or grassy.

Like with most really good Irish whiskey I do wish they were a smidge more competitive with their pricing as their are of course some knock out single malts at this price point, but at the same time you're not going to walk away from this one disappointed!

Tremendous. Buy it.
Surprised by just how good this is. Much prefer to the 12 year old Yellow Spot. Didn’t rate Green Spot at all. Beautiful nose. Does not need water added even though 58.7%.

Amazingly Good
Perfect all round, extremely smooth and in-line with the taste notes of the Spot range. With the cask strength, it has just the right amount of bite and it doesn't have an overpowering alcohol finish like other casks.

Blue Spot well worth the wait
The return of Blue Spot well worth the wait, being at cask strength real full bodied punch to the taste buds with the taste developing after every silky mouthful.
