Midleton Very Rare Vintage Release 2021 (700ml)

Midleton Very Rare Vintage Release 2021 (700ml)

Serial Number: 03459

Chosen from the most exceptional quality single pot still and single grain Irish whiskeys laid down over the past four decades in Midleton, Co Cork, Midleton Very Rare 2021 is aged from 13 to 35 years in lightly charred ex-bourbon American oak barrels.

Midleton master distiller Kevin O’Gorman’s debut vintage accentuates the elegant nature of Very Rare, and evokes an indulgent nose of rich caramel, dry spices, apple strudel, vanilla fudge, seasoned oak, banana, and toasted coconut. The palate revels in soft orchard fruits with a gentle undertow of spice, bananas in custard, and caramelized sugar. Including single pot still whiskey from 1984, this is fruit-led and so sippable. (Collectible)

Aroma 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.

Taste  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
