Green Spot Chateau Léoville Barton Irish Whiskey
The Léoville Barton Château is an active vineyard in Saint-Julien, Bordeaux, France. It was included on the 1855 classification list as second growth château, but has since been promoted to a first growth. The vineyard lies on gravel terraces above a flat clay soil called "2eme G." The grapes have high alcohol and sugar levels, but produce a lean wine with moderate alcohol content because they are specially picked.
Green Spot Château Léoville Barton has initially been matured in traditional sherry and bourbon casks, then finished in French oak wine casks from the renowned Château Léoville Barton, Bordeaux.
The French oak drives the initial aroma with crisp woodland notes added to the spicy Pot Still character. The wine seasoning brings a floral perfume and ripe berries to the archetypal orchard fruits.
The familiar mouth coating is a very satisfying balance of oak and spices. Some vanilla sweetness works in harmony with the dry orchard fruits and French oak, combining effortlessly with barley grains to complete the complexity. For the finish, the rich French oak slowly fades leaving the wine & the spices of France & Ireland with the last word.
