Blended Irish Whiskey
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 40%

The 2021 edition of Midleton Very Rare, the flagship Irish whiskey blend from New Midleton distillery, which is itself the jewel in the crown of owner Pernod Ricard's Irish Distillers empire.

This Midleton Very Rare 2021 contains Midleton's bourbon-matured single pot still and single grain whiskeys aged between 15 and 36 years old. MVR 2021 was the first to be blended by Midleton's Master Distiller Kevin O'Gorman and, with pleasing circularity, it includes whiskey from the 1984 vintage, the year that the first Midleton Very Rare edition was launched by Midleton's Master Distiller Emeritus Barry Crockett.

Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Opens with a delicate floral perfume closely followed by roasted coffee beans, salted caramel and honeycomb coming to the fore. Hints of nectarines that linger in the background evolve over time along with freshly grated ginger and nutmeg spice. The American oak provides structure throughout, ranging in depth from fresh woodland notes to aged charred oak.

Palate: Baked orchard fruits with a touch of lime zest and kiwi. Mild pot still spices continue to build along with soft waves of vanilla, sweet coffee liqueur and cocoa powder. The texture initially round and full, gains additional wood spices with a delicate touch of clove oil and nutmeg adding a mild heat, giving balance to the sweetness.

Finish: Lingering finish with the pot still spices and soft fruits eventually fading, allowing the oak to have the final say, highlighting the many years of maturation.
