Midleton 26 Year Old
70cl / 40%
- Blended Irish Whiskey
A very rare and famous bottle of Midleton Irish Whiskey, distilled in 1973 at the Old Midleton distillery, matured in sherry and bourbon casks before being finished in a port pipe and bottled in 2000 to celebrate the distillery's 175th Anniversary. Only 1000 bottles of this treasure were produced, each signed by Max Crockett, Midleton's now-retired Master Distiller and father of current Master Distiller Barry Crockett.
Midleton 26 Year Old Reviews
Complex on the nose, at once nutty and spicy. A wonderful depth of aroma, accentuated by hints of port wine and honey. A substantial well balanced bouquet where the dividends of long ageing are evident.
The overall effect is stunning, full bodied with a touch of sweetness. Complex spicy aromas linger on the palate, complementing each other intriguingly.
A long, satisfying finish with an aftertaste of heneyed wine and an echo of aged wood.
