Review - Green Spot Chateau Montelena



The Green Spot Chateau Montelena is the second bottling in the Irish whiskey brand's Wine Geese series. This sees the classic pot still whiskey matured in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, before being transferred for one year of finishing in French oak ex-Zinfandel red wine casks. These have come from the renowned Californian winemaker of Chateau Montelena in the Napa Valley. It follows the Bordeaux wine influenced Green Spot Château Léoville Barton, which was released in 2015.

Review - Glenmorangie Spìos



The Spìos is a new limited edition single malt from the famous north Highland distillery of Glenmorangie. It is the ninth expression in their annual Private Edition series, which looks to add a twist to the light and delicate Glenmorangie house style. This year's expression sees Glenmorangie fully matured in American ex-rye whiskey casks. These were sourced by Dr. Bill Lumsden (the brand's Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation & Whisky Stocks) on a trip to the USA in the late 1990s.
