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.

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!

Enjoyed at a tasting in an exclusive whisky bar and found it to be subtle, mild, smooth buttery finish with yellow apples, floral notes, malt, honey and has a oloroso sherry oak flavor. A great dram to taste and give as a birthday gift for any whisky lover if your able to find it. Cheers.

Was given a bottle of your fine whiskey for Christmas, along with three more. Redbreast 15yr., Tullamore Special Reserve 12yr., & Jameson. My sons & I did a blind taste test, hands down Midleton Very Rare 2014, was our favorite. Had many friends over for the Holiday Season, and most all agreed. It is a wonderful Whiskey. As I play in a pipe band it will now grace my flask at each & every event we march in. Thank You Brian Nation as well as your entire staff,& crew on a job well done ! CHEERS !!

Bought this on my way home from AF. My new favorit quality whiskey. My only complaint is that the price here in the states is almost double that which I purchased in Ireland.
