Mitchell & Son Red Spot 15 Year Old Pot was originally produced exclusively by the Mitchell family who commenced trading in 1805 on Grafton Street in Dublin as purveyors of confectionery, wines and fortified wines. The family's entrepreneurial spirit expanded into the whiskey bonding business back in 1887, whereby they matured their whiskey for many years beneath the cobbled streets of Dublin.
Mitchell & Son Red Spot 15 Year Old Pot name originated from the family's practice of marking casks of different ages with a spot of colored paint. There was a Blue Spot, Green Spot, Yellow Spot, and of course Red Spot. This revered Red Spot has remained underground until now.
Nose: Pot Still spices with rich cooked fruit, baked apple, mango and black cherry. Hazelnut and a touch of new leather fuse with toasted American oak.
Taste: A mix of ripe fruit sweetness from the Marsala seasoned wine casks. While the fruit remains, sweet red pepper and cracked black pepper and some spiciness, finished by notes of American oak and barley.
Finish: An extra long infusion of fruit and spices.
