The Midleton Very Rare vintage release is an annual release with a limited number of bottles. This is the 36th edition of this masterfully blended Irish whiskey by Master Distiller Brian Nation combining single pot still and single grain Irish whiskeys matured exclusively in lightly-charred ex-bourbon American oak barrels for between 13 and 34 years (1985 vintage). This marks some of the oldest whiskey ever used in a Midleton Very Rare vintage release. Nose: Ripe fruit notes of sweet pear, apple, brown sugar and vanilla Palate: Orchard fruits and spices coming to the fore while the grain’s soft floral notes gently linger in the background, allowing the oak to add dimensions of mild tannins and wood spice. Finish: The fruits and gentle spice slowly fade, giving way to the oak, mild roasted coffee and lingering nutty character (Tasting Notes from the Producer)
