Midleton Very Rare
A limited release, only 50 casks of Midleton are released every year, it really is very rare! Every whisky in the blend is triple distilled and between 12 and 25 years of age. As of 2014 it's the new Master Distiller Brian Nation who hand picks the the whiskeys that go into Very Rare, following Barry Crocket's retirement.
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.
Very Rare indeed
I have finally opened my 2008 bottle number 002205. So worth the wait.

My husband surprised me with a bottle this evening. He gave me a bottle of 21 year old Red Breast for Christmas and I think he felt guilty that it was almost gone....this is an amazing aged whiskey. Extremely smooth, lovely bright flavor of apple, vanilla, with a touch of honey. The oak subtly adds depth and character to this very rare and precious offering. Now if I can just schedule a trip to the Middleton Distillery life would be perfect!
