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.
Rich nutty character and fudge at the core, supported by apple crumble and unusual notes of chilli and brown banana.
Velvety smooth with apples dipped in vanilla to the fore. The spice is muted as the grain whiskey comes to the fore. Cracked cinnamon stick with butterscotch envelopes the tongue.
An elegant finish as the old grain whiskey takes this to the end.
