I think the Irish Whiskey industry should concentrate a lot more on Pot Still.

There are only currently three distilleries that produce any type of whiskey in Ireland (Kilbeggan are just starting and there are 1 or 2 more in the pipeline). The only one that produces single pot still - Midleton - has recently upped their brand count from 2 to 4, so things are progressing at least. Cooley and Kilbeggan both have stated their intentions to release SPSs in the future.
I think Green Spot shades it over Redbreast. Have not tried the two other pot stills.
Once upon a time there were several Spot's in the series, including Blue Spot and Yellow Spot. All were different aged. Now only Green survives.
It's not sold in the states to my knowledge, and having it shipped over here seems rather ludicrous considering all the other good offerings I can buy. One day, I will see that bottle sitting on a shelf somewhere. Good luck to the owner of it...I am one fast and sneaky devil!

Just to clarify, there is
Kilbeggan (afaik they are distilling but no 3 year old just yet)
The Kilbeggan that is currently available as whiskey is distilled at Cooley.

One of these SPS whiskies - the Barry Crockett Legacy - is quite pricey. The other - the Powers John's Lane 12 Year Old - is more reasonable and very tasty indeed. Considered by most (myself included) as easily the best Pot Still on the market.
