The Midleton Very Rare vintage release is an annual release with a limited number of bottles. This is the 38th edition of this masterfully blended Irish whiskey and the first release under Kevin O' Gorman, who was appointed Master Distiller of the Midleton Distillery in 2020. Combining single pot still and single grain Irish whiskeys matured exclusively in lightly-charred ex-bourbon American oak barrels for between 13 and 35 years. This marks some of the oldest whiskey ever used in a Midleton Very Rare vintage release. Nose: Sweet mandarin orange citrus with green banana and vanilla Palate: Cinnamon and cloves with a slice of root ginger along with polished antique wood, light tannins and charred oak. Finish: Spices give way to green fruits and stalks of barley.(Tasting Notes from the Producer)
