Mitchell & Son (The Spot Collection)

Mitchell & Son matured their whiskey in casks under the streets of Dublin in their network of underground cellars. When their fortified wine casks were filled exclusively with Jameson spirit from the old Bow St. Distillery, they were marked with a daub or ‘spot’ of paint which identified how long the barrels would be matured for. Blue for 7 years, Green for 10 years, Yellow for 12 years and Red for 15 years—hence the name Spot Whiskey.

It has long been argued as to which is the greatest of the Spot whiskeys. It’s a question that has divided families for centuries and indeed the Mitchells themselves. So rather than dare suggest which is greater than which, we thought it best to leave it to you to taste them all.
