A special bottling, selected by The Whisky Exchange: a single cask of 26-year-old Green Spot pot still whiskey, distilled at Midleton and filled into cask on 18 October 1991. It was initially matured in bourbon and sherry casks, before the spirit was reracked into a single Marsala butt for further maturation. The result brings together the fresh fruit flavours of bourbon-cask maturation with the richer dried fruit notes you get from sherry casks, and stirs them both together with fragrant Marsala and classic Irish pot-still fruit and spice.

|Nose||Brown sugar, papaya, barley sugar and cigar boxes – a wide ranging hint of things to come. Fragrant oak and fruit are wrapped around a core of mixed peel.|
|Palate||Spiced fruit cake gallops across the palate pulling a wagon of fruit: gummi chews and wine gums, stewed apples and pears, and a touch of apricot|
|Finish||Sharp fruit and spice fade to leave chocolate brownies and wine-gum fruitiness.|
