The first Midleton Very Rare bottling was released in 1984 and a new vintage is released every year.
he individual nature of the selection process means that each year’s vintage provides its own unique character. The Midleton Very Rare range is not blended like any other whiskey. The uncompromising ritual and expertise of the Master Distiller leads to subtle but recognisable differences between the years.
Prized amongst whiskey appreciators, there are very few collections of all vintages since the first release in existence.
Quite gentle to start, with dried soft fruits, brown banana and nutmeg. There’s some dried flowers and a discreet hint of oak.
The palate moves into nutmeg to start with, then a soft, sweet and creamy mid-palate with that floral touch, before some peppery green apple notes at the end.
A light orchard fruit finish.
