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 Crockett'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 Mom's Mom was born in Midleton. Cork. About 10 years ago she bought a 2006 and told everyone it was off limits until she passed away. "You can drink it at my repass", she said. Well after the Funeral and burial we drove an hour 1/2 home. I was late by about 45 mins. I got ONE drink out of the bottle! The nieces, nephew, aunts and uncles polished it off in less than an hour. Today I got the 2014 and am thinking of collecting each year as I head in Mom's direction. It was the finest drink I ever had. Slante'

I just opened a bottle purchased for my 60th birthday from my 2006 visit to Ireland .I was never a fan of whiskery,scotch or bourbon . It was well worth the wait.

Not sure about the taste of 2014, not as smooth
30th December 2016
A fine whiskey to pull out on special occasions, as I did, and create memories of time spent with family and friends. Don't drink to much, otherwise you won't remember those special times. I will purchase again.
23rd December 2016
Beautiful whiskey!Don't need to say anymore.
4th December 2016
Mothers milk saving the last glass from my 2014 bottle for St Patrick's day tomorrow. Unlike my Scots buddy below at least we have our freedom . Slainte.
16th March 2016
Had this during Christmas holiday in Minnesota. Beautifully smooth, you don't even realize your drinking whiskey, it goes down like a wine but tastes like an excellent whiskey.
11th February 2016
The only time I tasted this dream it was clear to me what Irish way of life stands for and if you don't you will never know bless
30th January 2016
I only bring it out when I want to impress my friends from the old country.
25th December 2015
First time I tried it was in a Irish bar in Germany... Felt like a Angel was gracefully pissing in my mouth. Since then I made all my friends tried and it... I keep my bottle for my own... Totally selfish and proud!
26th November 2015
I have finally opened bottle number 002985 from year 2000. Very awesome - only one Irish red hear beat this up!
28th October 2015
I learned about Middleton Whiskey many years ago and I've been a fan of it ever since. It's smooth and goes down with just a slight warming when it reaches the bottom. I've been looking for this whiskey for over 6 months and when I found it, I had to buy the last bottle.
25th September 2015
Was offered this at a local whiskey bar and was "sold". I have purchased two bottles now and really enjoy it. Don't want to share it. Both bottles are Barry Crockett...Absolutely superb.
19th September 2015
Some friends bought me this wonderful whisky. After tasting it for the first time I then refused to share it with anyone else!!! Was I selfish - YES, this has to drank alone and is the most superb smooth flavoured whisky I have ever tasted. Forget Macallan and Bushmills Black Bush this whisky is the creme de la creme!
2nd August 2015
I treated myself to a bottle when I gained a large promotion... This whiskey was gorgeous and has really promoted my irish whisky tasting to new levels im hooked now. It was not the best for the money in my opinion but I would gladly buy another bottle if the silly liquor stores stateside would stock it or at least find a bottle. The only things holding back my journey of trying all the Jameson family whiskey is avalibilty and cash flow. Do yourself a favor buy the bottle as you tour the distillary in Dublin, this was a truly special experience can't wait to get back there for another bottle along with the mack daddy rarest vintage
13th July 2015
This is probably one of the best Irish whikeys I have ever tried
5th July 2015
I bought a bottle of this 20 years ago and enjoyed it. We went back to Ireland this year and picked up another at the airport. My son graduated from high school and I enjoyed a sip with my wife. It is beyond expectations. Waiting for new big life moment to have another glass full. Well worth the wait.
28th June 2015
Compared with a good Scottish whiskey it has no taste!
23rd June 2015
The price seems exorbitant, until you taste it... I bought a bottle while in Dundalk for a conference (2011), and saved it for a special occasion. Opened it with the boys to celebrate my engagement, and wow... worth the wait!
16th June 2015
Received this from work and enjoying my just deserts...
5th June 2015
I have finally opened my 2008 bottle number 002205. So worth the wait.
15th May 2015
Damon near perfect, mellow smooth butterscotch and vanilla yummy yummy in my tummy
20th April 2015
Price is justified .I like Irish Whiskey best yet
21st March 2015
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!
10th March 2015
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.
11th February 2015
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 !!
23rd January 2015
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.
1st January 2015
One of the best I have ever tasted - still have half a bottle and saving it for a special occasion
12th November 2014
Title says it all. It's not even a .75 L bottle...
1st November 2014
By far the nicest and best whiskey Iv ever tasted.
3rd August 2014
Bar none, the best whiskey I have tasted
18th April 2014
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.
25th March 2014
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.
24th December 2013
An excellent whiskey that sets the standard that others can only dream of.
22nd December 2013
one of the best whiskey's I have ever tasted. really happy I have still almost a full bottle left... :-)
7th October 2013
Tasted a lot of Whiskey, no one can compare to this one. It's the best and worth every €
21st March 2013
As the title suggests....
27th November 2012
Smooth with unbelievable after-taste, thanks Nelutzu Muller and Bibliotheka
19th May 2012
Drunk slowly over about a year - demonstrated the point of premium spirits beyond question - can't aford to drink it when I want - which would be a lot. Thanks wife! Christmas is coming!?!
26th October 2011
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
7th May 2010
This shares with Laphroaig the distinction of having a brilliant after-taste. It's ultra-smooth. Gorgeous, but very expensive.
