from Midleton Distillery:

Nose:

A delicate introduction of Sweet Mandarin Orange Citrus with Green Banana and Vanilla. The light Herbal notes develop until the typical Pot Still Spices, including Cardamom, Nutmeg and Peppers, show the signature Midleton style. Whilst a touch of Cedarwood and Charred American Oak add to the complexity.

Palate:

The smooth initial mouthcoating is initially sweet with Vanilla and red Apple, before the more robust spices, Cinnamon and Clove with a slice of Root Ginger, show their presence. There is a polished Antique Wood contribution from the Barrels alongside some light Tannins and Charred Oak.

Finish:

The finish is extra-long as the spices subside giving way to Green Fruit and Stalks of Barley.

Created in 1984 by then Master Distiller Barry Crocket, Midleton Very Rare is a bottling released once a year in very small quantities. Midleton Very Rare is a blend of the finest and rarest whiskeys hand - picked in the Midleton warehouses to create the “pinnacle of Irish Whiskey”.

Beautifully presented in an oak box with accompanying certificate of authenticity. Each bottle is individually numbered and signed by the Master Distiller.
