Midleton was launched in 1984 by John Jameson & Co to celebrate the whiskies of the old Midleton distillery. A new vintage has been released every year since then, with each bottle carrying its own individual number. These have been recognised as some of the finest Irish whiskies ever bottled and sought after by drinkers and collectors alike.

Now, adding another dimension to the brand's allure is this triple distilled, non chill-filtered, hand bottled and ultra rare single cask release limited to just 558 bottles. Distilled in 1998 and matured in a first fill Sherry butt then bottled at natural strength, this is arguably one of Ireland’s most exclusive offerings to date. This edition was bottled for La Maison Du Whisky from cask 43233. Now mostly sold out in Europe, we are very fortunate (and surprised) to have secured a tiny quantity of this special Irish release.
Beautifully presented in solid timber box. Needless to say, very limited stocks.

Notes from La Maison Du Whisky... Whether on the palate or nose, the sherry wine takes centre stage and remains there until the very end. The result is a powerful, firm pure pot still, with much darker and deeper tones than usual. 59.7% Alc./vol.
