Midleton Very Rare 2014

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Midleton Very Rare 2014 to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Midleton Very Rare Bottling Note

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.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Midleton Very Rare 2014 Reviews

Top Notch Irish Whisky

My wife gave me a bottle for our 56th wedding anniversary. I have been wanting a bottle for myself ever since our tour of the distillery in Dublin. Had one glass in Dublin and was sold for life. Midleton is the best I’ve ever tasted. My friends will have to buy their own, I’m very selfish with mine.

Don't miss this one!

After drinking the best single malt scotch for most of my life...a member of the Irish friends have introduced me to aged Irish whiskey and Midleton is my favorite! I buy them to drink them...Barry Crockett is good but Very Rare 2014 is special. I will look for these each year.

I got one drink out of the bottle

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 will be looking to purchase another bottle but not sure if I can let it sit as long as I did the first time

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.

2014 doesn't taste the same as its predecessors

Not sure about the taste of 2014, not as smooth

30th December 2016

Non Whiskey Drinkers Enjoyed It.

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.

Beautiful whiskey!
Don't need to say anymore.

'The Scots have their whiskey ,The Welsh have their leeks but we have Midleton Very Rare

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.

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

soft and sensual

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

No one of note , own a couple of bars in America

I only bring it out when I want to impress my friends from the old country.

25th December 2015

Angel's drink

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

Nice product for celebrations

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

Strong contender

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

My Son Graduated from High School

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

Bull shit

Compared with a good Scottish whiskey it has no taste!

23rd June 2015

Worth the wait

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

Retirement is bliss

Received this from work and enjoying my just deserts...

5th June 2015

Very Rare indeed

I have finally opened my 2008 bottle number 002205. So worth the wait.

15th May 2015

Holy Sheet

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

Amazing Tuesday Night Surprise!! Bottle # 055202

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

Man In The Midle

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 !!

Happy New Year

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

Midleton Very Rare...No 039501

By far the nicest and best whiskey Iv ever tasted.

3rd August 2014

Midleton very rare

Bar none, the best whiskey I have tasted

18th April 2014

My favourite

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

None better!

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

As good as it gets

An excellent whiskey that sets the standard that others can only dream of.

22nd December 2013

Very rare and very good!

one of the best whiskey's I have ever tasted. really happy I have still almost a full bottle left... :-)

7th October 2013

Best Whiskey ever :-)

Tasted a lot of Whiskey, no one can compare to this one. It's the best and worth every €

21st March 2013

Worth every penny

As the title suggests....

27th November 2012

Unbelievable after-taste

Smooth with unbelievable after-taste, thanks Nelutzu Muller and Bibliotheka

19th May 2012

Lovely Present

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 Rare

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

Mild taste unbelievable after-taste.

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