Well what an exciting weekend. Pernod Ricard have just been given TTB approval for the elusive Blue Spot.

According to Mitchel and Sons, it had a small spell of being sold back in the day, so there may be some unicorn Blue Spots out there, but I’ve never seen one crop up online.
This is being bottled as a 7yr old, Cask Strength Single Pot Still Irish whiskey.

Tasting notes provided on the label

Nose: a light mix of pineapple, kiwi, green banana and lime zest followed by Pot Still spices, baked apple, hazelnut and toasted wood.
Taste: a smooth mouthfeel with a subtle mix of fruit, a hint of clove oil and cracked black pepper corns. Sweet spices, vanilla and cinnamon add to the wood’s nutty contribution.

Finish: a lasting and distinctly palatable balance of exotic fruits and spices.
Definitely a bottle I’ll be picking up later in the year when it’s released !
