Midleton Very Rare Irish Whiskey 2017 Vintage

Midleton Very Rare Irish Whiskey represents an annual bottling of the most exceptional casks of whiskey maturing at Midleton Distillery. The label was introduced in 1984, when Midleton Master Distiller Barry Crockett hand-selected a few dozen casks of whiskey from the distillery's rickhouses and blended them together. As a guarantee of quality and authenticity, Crockett personally signed each bottle by hand. Since then, the distillery has released a new vintage of Midleton Very Rare Irish Whiskey each year.

Midleton Very Rare Irish Whiskey is a marriage of fewer than 100 casks of whiskey, each of which was personally selected by Brian Nation (Crockett's successor) out of the nearly one million casks of whiskey currently maturing at the distillery.

Tasting Notes

The whiskey — triple-distilled and aged in lightly charred, ex-bourbon barrels for up to 25 years — has an aroma of subtle honey, sandalwood and dried apricots. The aroma gives way to notes of creamy vanilla, butterscotch and summer fruits (particularly strawberries and peaches) on the palate, and ultimately leads to a long and slightly sweet finish with a touch of cinnamon.

Proof 80 (40% ABV)
