The Whisky Exchange has unveiled Yellow Spot 1999, an exclusive release by Spot Whiskeys and a representation of traditional Irish whisky craftsmanship.


Aged for 23 years and limited to just 564 bottles, this expression was created by initially maturing the whisky in bourbon barrels before being transferred into a single, sweet Malaga cask. Tasting notes supplied by the Whisky Exchange say the whisky has notes of sultana, vanilla, and warming oak.


Since its launch in 2012 by Irish Distillers, Yellow Spot has created a reputation amongst collectors of Irish whisky. Spot Whiskeys has also found popularity with collectors through its range of Green, Blue, Red and Gold Spot brands. With the industry experiencing a renaissance among drinkers and collectors, this release stands out as a testament to the diversity of styles and expressions emerging from Ireland's distilleries.


Billy Abbott, brand ambassador at the Whisky Exchange, said: “More than two decades in wood has allowed the pot-still spirit to develop a deep fruity character while mellowing its characteristic spiciness, with time finishing in a single Malaga cask adding layers of extra complexity.”


Chris Bolton, own label and brand product manager at the Whisky Exchange, said: “We're delighted to be one of the first retailers to bring a single cask Yellow Spot to the market. This is an exceptional example of long-aged Irish pot-still whiskey much sought after by collectors and aficionados alike, especially from a brand with this kind of provenance”.


Yellow Spot 1999 (RRP £525) is now available in a limited run from The Whisky Exchange.
