Billed as “the first ever single pot still Irish whiskey to be finished in Bordeaux wine casks”, this Green Spot expression was first matured in a mix of ex-oloroso sherry, new American and ex-bourbon casks before finishing in ex-Bordeaux wine casks from Château Léoville Barton for 12 to 24 months.
