What you say above is true. It's soft and elegant. Nothing harsh here whatsoever. It lies sweetly on the tongue. I'm in love.

Came to this site to just glance at the reviews (as i do when remembering great whisky). Planning on sitting by the fire with friends and relaxing. Always clean and never watered down feel. Even if you have 2 cubes. I just use 1 for this peach of in the moment enjoyment. Little sweet and never harsh. Perfect for all around "me" time. For about 50 at max its great in every way.

Just a correction: according to the distiller's web site. Green Spot is not single pot, but composed of several pot still whiskies, aged 7 to 10 years in bourbon casks finished in sherry casks.

Tried this at Rira Pub in Atlantic City. Very smooth. Hoping to get some back home =)

Saturday was able to visit with a friend who traveled to Dublin for work a few weeks back. First time there for him and he absolutely loved it. He brought back a couple of bottles of this whiskey. We only cracked one bottle, because we already had another bottle of a Japanese label already open and dipped into, but I can tell you, this is the real deal. Once this was tried, it was the whiskey for the rest of the night until we reached the end of the bottle.The flavor was incredible, full but not too strong or overpowering with too much sweetness and it had just the right warm burn going down when sipped, and I can tell you, it made for an enjoyable evening. If you have not had the pleasure of trying this label I recommend highly that you try this, you will leave happy in the end. Looking forward to trying the Yellow Spot next.

I've been looking for a blend to replace Crown Rotal #16 since they no longer provide it here in the US. in my opinion, Green Spot meets and exceeds in flavor and quality! Love it!
20th May 2016
Best Irish Whiskey I've ever had. Love it. Unfortunately, so does everyone else so we run out fast.
24th March 2016
I loved every bit of this whiskey from the first whiff upon opening the bottle to the last sip of the evening. Smooth, thick mouth feel, amazing balance of aromas and flavors.
18th March 2016
so very smooth, had a oban scotch after , liked the Green Spot better,,,,,,,,,,,,will not wait till next St paddies day to drink more
Almost a honey liqueur feel but not the taste
11th March 2016
This goes down very easily. It is buttery, creamy and rich in mouth. It is also a bit sweet for my palate. (For reference, my favorites are Midleton Very Rare, Red Breast and more recently Writers Tears.
4th March 2016
Although curious I put off trying this for a long time because some of the tasting notes sounded a bit love it or hate it. Big mistake. It's stunning and utterly unique. Really unusual and surprising but in brilliant and inexplicable ways. Apples on the nose, sure - and fantastic, but the taste is a lot maltier than I was expecting. It's not often a whiskey makes me go wow at every sip.
1st March 2016
Lovely whisky I can say goodbye to reality 4 a while drinking green spot sitting in Nears in Dublin having a few shots
27th January 2016
This is my favourite whiskey. Its smoothness and creaminess is unparalleled. Of the 20+ Irish whiskeys in my collection this is the one I have most enjoyment introducing to friends especially the ones who claim not to enjoy whiskey.If you prefer a more complex taste then this may not float your boat but if you prefer a mellow and smooth dram then I cannot recommend more highly.
22nd January 2016
My wife and I just returned from a trip to Ireland and had the opportunity in testing a variety of Whiskeys. I think you'll agreed that once tasted, it has that smoothness, aroma and taste that most companies can only strive for. Hands down, Green Spot was very enjoyable.
22nd November 2015
The best. Simples!!
20th November 2015
One of the best, if not the best Irish whiskey, that is on the market. For this price, it has the flavour, it has the strength, it has the "all" factor in one. I strongly recommend. As a side note, try the "Yellow spot" as well. And mark the difference this whiskey (not whisky) makes on your tongue. Unique.
17th October 2015
From my first sip, I have been enamored of this fine elixir. Sure it will smooth all of the wrinkles from your day!
28th August 2015
Wonderful mellow Irish whiskey to drink neat with just less teaspoon of water but I must admit both spot whiskey's are true perfection I like them both.
29th July 2015
Recommended by a barman when i wanted something a bit different than the regular bottles you get hanging from optics.Its powerful, quite spicy and strong, but with fruity aspects. A drop of water really seperates and brings out the flavours.Lots of vanilla and a little fruity tang in there aswell. Beautiful straight, better with literally "a drop" of water at room temperature.Highly recommended
27th April 2015
I was in my local Irish bar a few months back and they were out of my standard Kilbeggan, The bartender recommended this and it is my new standard. The first thing that jumped out at me was how smooth this whiskey is. the mouth feel and finish are better than whiskeys costing mush more.
17th April 2015
Vanilla is strong and sugary. This is whiskey for summer evenings i recomented this for everyone
11th April 2015
I tend towards more peaty whiskies, but this was a wonderful experience. Halfway through the first glass I felt like I was in a Five Star Bed and Breakfast. Fantastic whiskey.
16th March 2015
To be honest I was disapointed doesn't have the creaminess that Powers has, Powers is half the price and just as good!
26th February 2015
Pleasantly surprised, new whiskey to add to the favourites list.
21st February 2015
Very nice a must try.if your a cider drinker this one will probably suit your pallet
If a whisky could ever be described as "pretty" this may be it. The nose full of sweet floral scents and promises of summer, a palate of more fruit, sugar, toffee and herbs, and a long satisfying sundown style finish. Very different. And very recommended!
22nd January 2015
Very Good 12 year old Single Malt Irish Whiskey, As good as my favorite 15 Year old Jamison Whiskey.
20th January 2015
Best single malt whisky I have ever tasted smooth and creamy
24th December 2014
Bought my first bottle in America this past year. Green Spot has changed everything.
11th December 2014
outstanding plain & simple. Very good nose, with excellent finish, complex enough to satisfy anyone's taste. Best whiskey I have had in a long tyme
7th December 2014
HAD THIS ONE WITH REDBREAST , GREEN SPOT IS IN A DIFFERENT LEAGUE , DANGEROUSLY MOORISH .BEAUTIFUL MALT
6th November 2014
I really liked the below post made on Sept. 5 because its important to me to challenge the things I like. Personally I love the Green Spot, for being smooth. To my palate, whiskies like the Bushmills 16 Yr have an almost sour bite that I don't much like. And the Teeling is ok but it doesn't hit me right. Green Spot just feels and tastes right. I like Red Breast a lot too but the Green Spot just... does it. The only other Irish that appeals to me so deeply is the Midleton Very Rare, and since that runs $150 a pop, I'm quite delighted with Green Spot at $45 a bottle.
22nd September 2014
Why are all the reviewers here so obsessed with smooth? Drink milk or dull the tastes with ice if you actually don't like tasting whisky. I fail to see any of the hype around this whiskey. I think its unrevealing on the nose, the pot still taste is the only interesting thing to elevate an otherwise flat taste and finish. Bushmills 10 is so much better if you want Irish or better still Tullibardine Sovereign.
5th September 2014
Unfortunately, I have been relocated to the relatively unknown, backwaterish Pacific Northwest in the States. I don't know what I did wrong, but here I am nevertheless. The worst of it all is that there is no Green Spot available unless one is willing to travel to Windsor, Ontario, wherever that might be. I beg anyone listening....please bring the Green Spot to the Pacific Northwest before I go ad.

Redbreast was my favorite until I tasted Green Spot. The nose has a honey kick! It’s got a very sweet, almost a desert smell. My first impression, comparing it to Redbreast, is that it has far less of an alcohol kick to it. There’s something I can’t place, perhaps anise? On tasting it, it is sweet, but not cloyingly so. Nowhere near as complex as Redbreast. Oily in a good way – great mouth feel. After sipping for a while the nose becomes far less sweet. I taste something different each time I take a sip, but I keep coming back to the memory of graham crackers.It smells like honey, reminds me of graham crackers, and feels like summer. And then the bottle is gone.
7th July 2014
I was introduced to this whiskey in a pub called Stags Head in Dublin. I was going to order another brand on the list of about 30 Irish Whiskey's and asked the bar keep what he would suggest. I took his advice and loved the flavor. Very smooth and a great finish. I bought a bottle on my way out of Dublin Airport. Glad to know I can order it and have it sent to me.
5th July 2014
The first time I was introduced to this Whiskey was when I was visiting family in Sandy Cove Ireland.For years I had to have my mother bring it here as a gift to me. NOW YOU CAN BUY IT HERE!! This is the finest tasting Whisky. I actually prefer it over the Yellow Spot or the 12 year old Jameson. Nothing better on a Sunday afternoon on the patio with a nice cigar.
10th June 2014
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned bananas. To me this has a very strong banana flavor to it, on the nose, palate, and finish. It's especially noticeable if you water it down to about 30%. I'm not a big fan of banana flavor and I find this overpowering, drowns out everything else. I don't notice that flavor in the redbreast, as a comparison.
This is a wonderful Whiskey,very easy to drink. Brought a couple of bottles back from Shannon..
16th May 2014
got a bottle of green spot yesterday $45.00 usd.it tasted to just like redbreast 12 yr,i know it's from the same distillery.for the $3.00dollars more i'll stick with the redbreast,but a great whiskey

I didn't much care for Redbreast, and had given up on Irish whiskey, but then I tried the Spot. Wow, it's so powerful (yet smooth), you'd think it was cask strength, but the label says 40%. It's as good as they say it is.
23rd January 2014
This is, hands down, my favourite whisky so far (although I have many left to try "God willing"!
15th December 2013
Wow. Smoother than a young Tina Turners skin.... Tastier than.... well, tastier than both Redbreast and Black Bush. Easily the best Irish whiskey around. Gives a couple of the Japanese whiskeys and the Dalmore a run for their money in my favourite whiskey ever. This quite possibly takes the winners podium as its a good £10 cheaper than any of my other favourites. Jason Breen.

My wife travels internationally fairly regularly and brings home liquor from all over the world, Russian Vodka, Dominican Rum, etc. but my favorite has been the Green Spot Whiskey. It's fantastic, even compared with Whiskeys from across the globe. As I write this I'm re-ordering another bottle, I definitely recommend giving it a try.
4th May 2013
I've tasted many types over the years and have enjoyed most that I've tried. It's hard to get Green Spot here in the USA but having heard so many good things about it, I had to try it. So, I ordered some from across the pond. Smooth as silk, Light on the palate. Sweet without being overwhelming. It went down way to easy and sadly, it's all gone. I'm getting an order together with all my friends and am looking forward to many nights by the fire with my wife and my whiskey!
21st March 2013
Fantastically smooth whiskey. It lasted only a couple of weeks, as my wife and I coild not hold ourselves back .
