Green Spot Château Barton

The first ever single pot still Irish whiskey finished in Bordeaux casks! The choice of Bordeaux wine is also significant - Ch. Léoville Barton is not only a highly-regarded grand cru Château, but one that takes it's name from the Irish 'Wine Geese' winemaker Thomas Barton. In fact, Léoville Barton is still run by his descendants to this day. This bottling is a celebration of shared Irish heritage.

Matured initially in a mixture of ex-Oloroso Sherry, fresh American oak and ex-bourbon barrels, this Green Spot whiskey is then finished in the ex-Château Léoville Barton Bordeaux wine casks for 12 to 24 months.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Wild raspberry, a little pot pourri, crab apple, honey and gingerbread.

Palate Toffee, green apple, lemon peel, vanilla, redcurrant and warming spice.

Finish Long and quite dry with cereal and plenty more spiciness!

Reviews for Green Spot Château Léoville Barton
Quality!
Whilst I'm no expert, I do know what I like! Always find it difficult here in England to track down Irish whiskies, other than the more common varieties, but on a recent stay in Belfast, I made a point of trying a few. The regular Green Spot, I found to be OK, but the Yellow Spot was really nice. Anyway, I decided to go somewhere inbetween for this purchase and went for this Chateau Leoville Barton, somewhat based on other customers reviews. I have to say that I'm defininately NOT disappointed!

Another great Spot whiskey
I have now tried four different Spot whiskey's, like the others this one does not disappoint.

To keep it basic, this is very smooth with rich caramel and vanilla flavours, my personal favourites.

This used to be good
Not sure what has happened to this.

I had a bottle a few years ago and it was as expected: sweet cake spices, chalky yet creamy. It was one of my top whiskies.

The most recent bottle (bought in 2021) seemed very young to me. Leaving it to sit for a while didn't make a significant difference, and adding water only improved it a little. I tried this whiskey at different times of the day, before and after meals and with friends - but to no avail. The apparent youth in the glass impacted the enjoyment of the whiskey.

For the money, this is way too harsh.

Work in progress
Smoother than a baby’s bum. The nose changed dramatically after a few minutes in the glass., this was a first pour. Initially to me very solvent, then ripe pear and butterscotch. In the mouth subtle and warming then turning to tingling spice. Satisfying warmth and comfortable finish. I would guess this is going to get better and better after opening.

Wonderful whiskey for the price
Top class nose and taste - refreshing. Punches well above its price point. This is the best version in my opinion of the green spots.

Magic, magic, magic.
Nose: Chalky sweet medicinal nose.

Palate: Sweet molasses close out a palate which is verdant in the fruits of the forest.

After: The decline into your sip tantalisingly spells sourness, but no, this whiskey is merely holding you attention ahead of your next taste. Wonderful.

Silky smooth
Very smooth, perhaps too easy... Really rich and full of flavour, caramel, molasses and just lovely. Best I’ve had in a long long time.

Unique and a must have
Someone else wrote that this is a totally unique whiskey, and I have to agree. There is nothing else like this. I can see it being polarizing; like marmite - you’ll love it or be soft it. This is an absolutely a gem and a staple for me. Drinks at a much higher value than its cost, and it’s a must have if you’re a fan of Irish SPS whiskies.

Awesome dram
I am a huge fan of Irish Whiskey. Midleton Was always my ultimate, but the escalation in price gives me pause . This is amazing stuff , grab it up at the duty free if you get a chance , an amazing value .

Sweet and tasty
I was an unconditional single malt Scotch fan but since I went to Ireland and tried their triple distilled pot still whiskey, I changed my mind a bit. This green spot Château Léville Barton is very interesting to drink.
