Midleton Very Rare Blended Irish Whiskey (700ml) - 2021 Bottling
Often considered the pinnacle of Irish Whiskey, another vintage of this collectable release has arrived in Australia. This is the 38th edition and stocks are well down on last years. These annual bottlings are typically composed of single pot still and single grain whiskeys, each of which have been matured in lightly-charred, ex-bourbon American oak barrels for between 12 and 28 years. 40% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... 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.
