Midleton Very Rare 2016 Bottling Note

It's the 2016 edition of the annually-released Midleton Very Rare, an annually-awesome Irish blended whiskey from the eponymous distillery. This was drawn exclusively from American oak barrels selected by Master Distiller Brian Nation (who took over the role from the legendary Barry Crockett in 2014).

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

Nose: Robustly malty, though soft hints of jam doughnuts and marmalade come through too.

Palate: Waxy fruit, still quite malty. Christmas spices and comforting vanilla notes linger.

Finish: Apricot, mango and underlying hints of peppered oak.

Lucky find in WV

Very well done. From the first drink there was a warm taste similar to a carmel apple. I’ll be buying more of this at the first opportunity

Good, but didn't live up to its price.

I tried this in a bar whilst I was originally drinking Jameson Select Reserve. I thought at £15 a shot, this has to be pretty special. It was good, but not as good as the Jameson that was three times cheaper. Don't get me wrong, this was a lovely smooth drink, but it didn't put the Jameson in the shade which I expected it to do. Sorry.........
