Green Spot Single Pure Pot Still Irish Whiskey (750ml) Top Pick!
Green Spot Single Pure Pot Still Irish Whiskey (750ml)

The elusive Green Spot Whiskey is finally here. This legendary whiskey is partly responsible for the resurgence in popularity of pure pot still whiskey, the traditional Irish method of whiskey production. Green Spot began as the house brand for a Dublin wine merchant Mitchell & Sons. After consolidation of the Irish Whiskey market, Mitchell & Sons negotiated an agreement to be provided a small quantity of whiskey to support the brand. The current blend consists of 8-9 year old whiskey of which 25% is aged in sherry casks. Fewer than 1,000 cases are produ... Read More »

Redbreast 12 Year Old Irish Whiskey (750ml)

96 points Whisky Advocate: "*Value Pick* Very elegant, complex, and stylish. Honeyed and silky in texture, with toffee, toasted marshmallow, nougat, maple syrup, banana bread, and a hint of toasted coconut. Bright fruit and golden raisin blend in nicely with the layers of sweetness. Impeccable balance and very approachable. Classic Irish whiskey! (JH, Winter 2010)" 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "From county Cork comes this bartender favorite. Look for a vibrant golden color and enticing honeysuckle and buttery brioche aroma. This whiskey feels soft and sets the mouth watering with lightly smoky notes tapering off ...Read More »

Redbreast "Lustau Edition" Sherry Finished Irish Whiskey (750ml)

93 points Whisky Advocate: "The 120 year old sherry house Lustau originally operated as an almacenista, but now produces a broad portfolio of wine styles in Jerez. The nose is intensely fragrant, bursting with fat dates and squidgy prunes, red apple and Battenburg cake. It’s fruity, yet bone dry, with oak, walnut, and spices. This is full-bodied yet refined Redbreast: the Spanish oak sherry butts shaping the red berry fruits, apples, marzipan, and creamy yet oily consistency. Clean, sweet oloroso finish. Qué delicioso! (JM, Winter 2016)" K&L Notes: Winner of the Whisky Advocates 2016 "Irish Whi... Read More »

Yellow Spot Single Pure Pot Still Irish Whiskey (750ml)

91 points Whisky Advocate: "After last year's pot still triple whammy from Irish Distillers, we couldn't expect any more, could we? Could we? Step forward Yellow Spot, which seems to hold the view that if you can't beat 'em, don't get in the ring; go and pick a fight somewhere else. The pot still green apple and nutmeg notes are there on the nose and palate, but the nose also has vanilla and marzipan. On the palate the whiskey trips off to Speyside with sweetness, citrus zest, and pepper. Another game changer. (Fall 2012)" K&L Notes: The big brother to the illustrious Green Spot, the Yellow Spo...

Jameson Irish Whiskey (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Meet the undisputed driver of the Irish whiskey resurgence. The nose is light, with baked apple strudel, toasty staves, and hints of the bourbon and sherry cask influence. There are discernible pot still elements contributing a fruity character and plenty of weight. This dominant triple distilled whiskey is smooth, sure, although that characteristic improves noticeably up the range. Expect Braeburn apples, raspberry, strawberry, currants, and mixed peel, with a short finish of cinnamon spice and a dull fruit note. (JM, Fall 2015)" Wine Enthusiast: "A favorite for shots at b ...Read More »

Redbreast 15 Year Old Pure Pot Still Irish Whiskey (750ml)

92 points Whisky Advocate: "Redbreast 12 year old is a classic pure pot still Irish whiskey; where can you go from there? This new 15 year old expression is more muscular (bottling at 46% and not chill filtering certainly helps), but there are trade-offs. It’s a bit closed on the nose (like a great Bordeaux wine that’s too young). I do enjoy the silky/oily texture, the bold resinous oak spice grip on the finish, and the rich nutty toffee, fig, black raspberry, chocolaty, chewy nougat throughout the palate. Still, it’s not as eminently drinkable, refined, or balanced as the 12 year ...Read More »

Midleton Very Rare Irish Whiskey (750ml)

92 points Whisky Advocate: "This year’s liquid missive from head distiller Brian Nation has a nose of caramel, macaroons, and beeswax with green, grassy notes. The first sip evokes barley sugar, which grows into a citrus glow, nourished by some green oak and a little white pepper. It has lovely poise this year, effortlessly lighter on the tongue than the 2015 or 2014 creations. The conclusion is slightly nutty with soothing oak. (JM, Spring 2017)"

West Cork 10 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey (750ml)

The West Cork distillery started as a pet project by John O’ Connell, Denis McCarthy and Ger McCarthy in 2003 in Union Hall, West Cork. In 2013 after much expansion WCD moved to a larger distillery in Skibbereen, West Cork where it now resides. It now operates as only one of two independent distilleries in Ireland. They actually have their own 10-year-old single malt whiskey (currently married with whiskey from another distillery) that somehow, someway costs about the same as a bottle of 10-year-old Bushmills, despite the fact that they're an independent...

Jameson Cooper's Croze Irish Whiskey (750ml)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This new blended Irish whiskey is intended to showcase flavors imparted by the barrel. (A cooper makes barrels; a croze is a tool used to cut grooves in the barrel.) Look for a bright, fresh scent layered with fresh pear and sweet vanilla, which is echoed on the palate. Adding water coaxes out more vanilla, crème brûlée and baking spice. A real sipper, this whiskey warms all the way down. (KN)" (3/2017) Whisky Advocate: "Master cooper Ger Buckley has the most significant job at Midleton. Named after the croze that he uses to cut the groove for the cask head, these older-age ...Read More »

Redbreast 21 Year Old Pure Pot Still Irish Whiskey (750ml) (1 bottle limit)

96 points Whisky Advocate: "Wow! After the wonderful 12 year old cask strength, Redbreast does it again. This is a different beast altogether, but it is a stunner. This is Roger Waters doing The Wall: over the top, unsubtle, and totally entertaining. There’s lots going on: fermenting apples, juicy oils, spice, and dark cherry and berry fruits zip and fizz over the palate, the wood influence is sublime. I'm comfortably numb. (DR, Winter 2013)"

Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength Irish Whiskey (750ml)

96 points Whisky Advocate: "*Best Irish Whiskey of the Year!* Irish Distillers has already released two 90+ pot still whiskeys this year, but this is the knockout blow, an immense take on the wonderful Redbreast. The nose gives little away, all damp autumn leaves and fermenting forest fruit, but on the palate it's a fireworks display, a colorful mix of apple and pear, berries, vine fruits, chocolate liqueur, and oily pureed fruit. It's coming to the States soon, and rumor has it there's more to follow. But this will do. I can't think if I've ever tasted a better Irish whiskey. (Vo ...Read More »

Jameson Select Reserve Black Barrel Irish Whiskey 1L

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Like a liquid (if boozy) apple pie, this blended whiskey offers bold, rich aromatics, with lots of dried and stewed fruit flavors and butterscotch. The drawn-out finish incorporates touches of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and even a mouthwatering sprinkle of salt." (3/2014) K&L Notes: A fantastic expression of Jameson using older whiskies and a higher percentage of pot-distilled spirit finished in recharred Bourbon casks. It has the suppleness and the ease you love of Midleton whiskey, but with an extra bolster of richness on the back end. I like this more than Redbrea... Read More »

Teeling Small Batch "Rum Cask Finish" Irish Whiskey (750ml)

The Teeling Family has been in whiskey for centuries. In 1782, Walter Teeling opened the family's first distillery in Dublin and over two hundred years later John Teeling opened the Cooley Distillery in County Louth. After selling his beloved distillery to spirits giant Beam Inc., Mr. Teeling wasted no time before jumping back on the whiskey train. This time at the helm is Jack Teeling, John's son. The result is this lovely, innovative new whiskey. Clearly, the Teelings' have access like no one else and thank god because he's now cranking out this wonde... Read More »

Powers & Sons 12 Year Old John's Lane Pot Still Irish Whiskey (750ml)

94 points Whisky Advocate: "Wow! Could this be the greatest comeback since Rocky climbed back in the ring and showed the young upstarts who was the boss? It's taken Irish Distillers a long time to respond to the pounding it's taken from Cooley but it's back in the ring with two wonderful pot still whiskeys. This is the better of the two, a whopping oily, woody package of classic pot still Irishness. The green fruits tumble over tannin and spice like frisky puppies. (Vol. 20, #3)" K&L Notes: This is now the third single pot still whiskey in the U.S. from Midleton, following the Redbreast portfol... Read More »

On the palate, apple and ripe pear meld with butterscotch and a touch of banana on the long finish. Meant for savoring straight up. (KN)" (3/2014) 92 points Whisky Advocate: "Like the man himself, this is altogether more considered and elegant, mixing whiskeys up to 25 years old for a complex and less bruising experience than the Powers. Instead, lemon and lime zest, kumquat, and blood orange entwine themselves around vanilla, nutmeg, and so ...Read More »

2002 Cooley 13 Year Old "Irish Malt" Exclusive Malts K&L Exclusive Cask Strength Single Cask Irish Single Malt Whiskey (750ml)

Here is a fun one from our friends at the Creative Whisky Company. They made waves last year by bottling a single barrel of Irish Malt at full strength and 13 years of age. While those details are unusual without a doubt, what shocked the whiskey world was that very humble cask (#20012) received a WHOPPING 96 points from the Whiskey Advocate. While we've become accustomed to seeing high scores in the wine world, this type of score is reserved at WA for the most special offerings and is never doled out lightly.

Connemara 12 year old Irish Peated Single Malt Whiskey

90 points Whisky Advocate: "One of Cooley’s finest efforts. Moderate doses of kiln smoke, dried turf, and kippers, tamed by vanilla cream, barley, and a buttery, olive oil texture. Subtle spices dance on the palate. Lingering smoky, white pepper finish. Islay meets Ireland." K&L Notes: Then this small distillery opened up, staunchly independent, and starts doing things unheard of in Ireland. Instead of making traditional Irish whiskey (triple-distilled, non-smoky, and with a pot still whiskey component), they started making very scotch-like whiskey (double distilled, single malt, and sometimes ...

Egan's 10 year old Irish Single Malt Whiskey

The Egan family of Tullamore established their Merchant trading business in 1852. Then they specialized in brewing, bottling, malting, and importing. They were regarded as one of Tullamore's great business families and indeed expanded over the coming decades into hospitality and more. In the 1940s, their bottling operations were responsible filling the Jameson and Powers brand and their maltings provided malt for several of the Ireland's great distillers. The business was hit hard in the 60s and eventually was liquidated due to the slow down in Irish Whi... Read More »

Tyrconnell Single Malt Irish Whiskey (750ml)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Nice aromas of roasted nuts, nougat, light toffee, candy bar, mild oak and brown sugar. Entry is satiny smooth, honeyed and near lush in texture; the midpalate point brings in spicy notes, in particular, black pepper and clove. The malt component takes charge in the finish, bringing a keen graininess." (12/2008) K&L Notes: One of the best Irish Whiskies in the store! Pot still whiskey is different than single malt in that the former uses both malted and unmalted barley, while the latter uses just malted. This produces a heavier, more flavorful whiskey. This wonderful... Read More »

West Cork Barrel Proof Irish Whiskey (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Cinnamon bark, oak, overripe nectarines, salted peanuts, and faint herbal notes open up this blended whiskey housed in the bottle with the clever geographical label. The structure starts light on the first sip, with Golden Delicious apples and honey lozenges, but then it thickens up mid-palate when the spiciness kicks in... A decent spicy buzz finishes this perfectly serviceable blend composed by these determined newcomers to the Irish whiskey scene. (JC, Spring-2015)"

It's very West Cork in style, rich and round, but with earthier accents underneath the vanilla. This one even has a coffee bean note to it, which we found intriguing.
