MIDLETON VERY RARE
MIDLETON VERY RARE
Midleton Very Rare is consistently awarded the highest honours at the world’s most respected whisky awards. The sublime 2016 vintage most recently received double gold at The San Francisco World Spirits Competition. This is a whiskey that will never be short of accolades.
Created in 1984 and released annually since then, Midleton Very Rare is one of the most exclusive and sought after Irish whiskeys.
Once a year our Master Distiller hand selects only the finest and rarest whiskeys available to him and then carefully blends them to create each annual vintage of Midleton Very Rare Vintage Release. Only a limited number of bottles of this unique Irish whiskey vintage are released each year.
“Each year, for more than 5 decades, we have been setting aside very small amounts of particularly fine single pot still and single grain distillates so that the Midleton Very Rare legacy can continue. I am delighted that our 2019 vintage is once again a whiskey of exceptional quality that fits beautifully into the family,” explains Brian. “This vintage features an extraordinary blend of whiskeys from the rarest casks in our collection to make this is our oldest ever Midleton Very Rare, with the youngest whiskey in our 2019 vintage having been aged for 13 years, and the oldest dating back to 1985.”
Ripe fruit notes of sweet pear and apple that develop overtime, adding a delicate touch of mango. Complimented by the charred American Oak, these flavours are further accentuated with additional sweet layers of brown sugar and vanilla, with a light dusting of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove spice.
Luscious and silky texture with the orchard fruits and pot still spices coming to the fore while the grain’s soft floral notes gently linger in the background, allowing the oak to add dimensions of mild tannins and wood spice.
The fruits and gentle spice slowly fade, giving way to the oak foundation that leaves a mild roasted coffee and nutty character to linger until the very end.
