What's in a name? Midleton Very Rare whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in Ireland. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Midleton Very Rare whisky, rather than whiskey.
The nose is complex and well-balanced with notes of spice, potpourri, wood resin, oak and juicy cereals. The palate is creamy and sweet with notes of fresh flowers, butterscotch and vanilla. The finishis long and spicy.
When friends call I might invite them to have a drink. The range is extensive but I keep one secret bottle to myself. It is the Very Rare Middleton that is not kept in the drinks cabinet and only taken out when I am alone and want the best. This one is beyond sharing.

This is the best whiskey I've ever laid my lips on. Hands down the BEST. They have ruined me for any other blend of whiskey.

Very disapointed,not as good as 21year old, where can I get where can I get a bottle of that,(21 year old single malt)Laphroaig is not wonderful

This shares with Laphroaig the distinction of having a brilliant after-taste. It's ultra-smooth. Gorgeous, but very expensive.
