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.
Immediate green granny smith apples with a cereal element apparent. Lemon verbena and hawthorn, spiced vanilla. Oily, with pot still character to the fore.
The thick palate is concentrated, showing darker fruits and set honey, but a tang of acidity maintains balance.
Waves of vanilla spice gently fade to old oak.
