Midleton Very Rare 2023


From the very first bottle, Midleton Very Rare whiskeys have always had a close and personal association with the Master Distiller, whose signature adorns every bottle ever released. Its creator, Barry Crockett, is a true Irish Whiskey legend, and his father Max Crockett led the way as Master Distiller before him. In fact, Barry was born and grew up in the Master Distiller’s House on the Midleton Distillery grounds. This deep history and heritage is one of the many reasons Midleton Very Rare is seen as the original prestige whiskey of Ireland. Please note: purchase is limited to one bottle per customer.

AromaOpens with an intricate medley of fruits including nectarines, ripe melon, green apple, and apricot. A solid foundation of pot still spices, showcasing notes of freshly peeled ginger and crushed peppercorns, work in tandem with the aged grain’s perfumed notes of dried flowers and delectable golden syrup. The oak continues to reveal itself, adding notes of vanilla, combined with a honeycomb sweetness and freshly roasted coffee beans.

TasteLuscious at first with succulent fruits and a distinctive creaminess along with a herbal quality akin to camomile tea. The pot still spices add depth and intrigue as they weave amongst the floral grain qualities found lingering throughout. The charred oak’s influence continues to build over time creating additional complexity as the wood-derived spices complement the ever-present fruits of candied orange and dried apricot.

FinishThe fruits and pot still spices build to a crescendo before giving way, leaving the final say to the oak tannins and antique grain whiskey.
