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