Birthday dram: Green Spot finished in Zinfandel barrels. The base spirit is excellent, and shines through what’s a bit of a finishing miss for me. The Zin barrels add dry earthiness, almost sulphuric notes, that clash with the sweeter malty notes of the whiskey. I like it! But I like the standard Green Spot expression more. Maybe an 87-ish point dram for me. Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!
