Midleton Distillery

Midleton Very Rare 2013 40%

Each year this “experiment” in quality changes a little and thus each release is vintage dated. One thing you can count on is that it will always be elegant, impeccably balanced and perilously drinkable. Distillery manager Barry Crockett wouldn’t put his signature on every bottle if he didn’t think so.

Midleton Very Rare 2008 40%
Btl No: 025176
Tasted: Mar 2013
A rock hard rye like Pot Still nose of earthy spice, which hold the boisterous aromas of banana and apricot fruit in check. With time the huge Pot Still spices kick in and a touch of coffee, linseed oil, sandalwood and leather become apparent. The aromas have a reasonable degree of maturity and it feels like it’s in its mid-teens.

Whoa! the palate is so austere it makes your mouth water! Slightly oily (linseed) to begin with followed by some hard but juicy Pot Still grains and spices. Unyielding and crispy with lots of puckering oak but there is some oily banana skin and apricot trying to offset all that spice and oak, but damn that’s tight! Lovely finish displaying some herbal barley and light citrus notes.
