Midleton Very Rare 2018 is a marriage of specially-selected casks of pot still and single grain Irish whiskeys, all of which were aged exclusively in lightly-charred ex-bourbon barrels for at least 12 years. This whiskey has rich notes of vanilla on the palate, with subtle floral notes and fresh citrus alongside black pepper, cloves and cinnamon. The vanilla builds alongside toasted oak and sweet orchard fruits for a lingering finish.
Created in 1984 by Master Distiller Emeritus Barry Crockett, Midleton Very Rare is an expression of his expertise and his art. A new vintage is released every year, and this year the series celebrates its 35th release.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes From the Producers
Vanilla sweetness with a light floral perfume. Some citrus zest combines with fresh herbs and sweet spices complimented by a touch of black pepper and charred oak.
Mouth-coating sweetness of vanilla, cinnamon and clove, enriched with a hint of green apple and unripe banana. Peppery pot still spices, along with charred American oak, add complexity.
Soft sweet spices fade leisurely leaving the final say to the charred oak and barley grains.
More from Midleton
I am a huge fan of this whiskey. I don't usually go for blended ones but this one is blended to perfection. One of the best bottles I have ever tasted. Your palate is taken through soft citrus flavours, grains and then that vanilla and spice. It has no harshness. It is a true delight.
Absolutely the best whiskey I have ever tasted
I buy this for my family every Christmas & they said it was even better than usual this year!
The Nose, Taste, and Finish is a MIRACLE happening in the mouth
Yes , hands down the best whiskey in the world.
