Green Spot Château Leoville Barton: A Marriage of Irish Heritage and French Distinction

A Collaboration Steeped in History:

Green Spot Château Léoville Barton is a unique single pot still Irish whiskey born from the collaboration of two esteemed houses, each with a rich history deeply rooted in their respective crafts. This special edition bottling celebrates the shared Irish heritage between the Midleton Distillery and Château Léoville Barton, a renowned Grand Cru classé winery in Bordeaux.

A Fusion of Tradition and Innovation:

The journey of Green Spot Château Léoville Barton begins with traditional maturation, where the whiskey spends time in a combination of ex-Oloroso sherry and fresh American oak casks. This foundation lays the groundwork for the whiskey's characteristic pot still character, known for its spicy notes and complex depth.

The true innovation comes through the finishing touch. Green Spot Château Léoville Barton undergoes a final maturation in ex-Château Léoville Barton red wine casks. These casks, once used to create the estate's prestigious wines, imbue the whiskey with an extraordinary layer of complexity.

Aromatic Symphony:

On the nose, the French oak influence takes centre stage, introducing crisp woodland notes that harmonise seamlessly with the spicy pot still character. The wine casks contribute a delightful floral perfume and hints of ripe berries, adding a touch of elegance to the classic orchard fruit aromas.

A Taste of Two Worlds:

The palate experience is a testament to the successful marriage of traditions. The familiar mouth-coating sensation is perfectly balanced with rich oak and warming spices. A touch of vanilla sweetness dances alongside dry orchard fruits and the subtle influence of French oak, all culminating in a complex symphony of flavours.

As the whiskey lingers on the finish, the rich French oak gradually fades, leaving a lasting impression of the wine's influence and a lingering touch of spices that tie back to the Irish heritage.

Green Spot Château Léoville Barton is a masterpiece in a bottle, a testament to the ingenuity and dedication of both the Midleton Distillery and Château Léoville Barton. It is a must-try for any whiskey enthusiast seeking a truly unique and unforgettable experience.
