The story of Midleton Very Rare begins with unquestionable vision. At a time when all other distilleries were reluctant to take risks, Master Distiller Barry Crockett took it upon himself to create the award-winning flagship blend from the Midleton Distillery.
Midleton Very Rare changed the idea of what Irish whiskey had become. It wasn’t mass market, but a limited and highly distinguished liquid. It was in fact the first premium blended whiskey produced before any Scottish distillery had even begun to think about it.
"A limited release, only 50 casks of Midleton are released every year, it really is very rare! Every whisky in the blend is triple distilled and between 12 and 25 years of age. As of 2017 it's the new Master Distiller Brian Nation who hand picks the the whiskeys that go into Very Rare, following Barry Crocket's retirement."
"Complex, robust, and hard to put down, this sipper offers big, buttery, toasty flavor. Look for crème brûlée and custard, caramel apple and brioche rounding into a gently spiced finish. Limited production." Wine Enthusiast 96 Points
