Midleton Very Rare 2018

The buildings of the Midleton distillery began life rather abstemiously; used as a wool mill in the very late eighteenth century. Leased by Marcus Lynch, the buildings were sold to the government, who subsequently sold them to the Arch Bishop of Cashel in 1823 for the sum of £1,750. The Arch Bishop died later that year and the buildings were inherited by Lord Midleton. It was the three brothers Murphy who converted the mill into a distillery in 1825. They had acquired the buildings for £4,000. Stills were installed, including the world's largest still with a capacity of 31,618 gallons. The distillery produced a range of brands and in 1966 the company joined John Powers and John Jameson to form the Irish Distillers Group and a new distillery was built at Midleton to produce all of their brands. This new distillery now has a capacity of 60m litres, following a large expansion project in 2013.

Midleton Very Rare presents a subtle and complex nose, with discreet notes of oak, cereal and peach. On the palate is long and very perfumed, with layers of flavour: lilac, oak and toffee. Long finish, with notes of spices and oak.

Origin Cork (Midleton), Ireland Irish Distillers Midleton manufacturer with the most modern distillery can safely be called the city - are called complex in the world. And here they stand alongside the modern column pillar made of stainless steel, the veteran and reliable large, shimmering copper pot stills with their immense volume of each 75 000 liters - a landmark Irish Whiskey - tradition. Already always the distillates for the good Irish are at least five years matured in selected oak barrels in fresh Irish air before the Master Blender, the contents of the individual barrels to marry in order to guarantee that the personal character of each Irish can. 1984 saw this whiskey for the first time the light of day Midleton Very Rare made it in a remarkably short time, at many whiskey - to make a name for lovers. He owes this extraordinary success of decades of experience and the most demanding focal analysis - and control procedures in the world. The whiskeys of the Very Rare are distilled in large copper kettles three times. Only completely flawless flavor components make it into the oak barrels, then stored for a few years in huge dark halls where a mysterious maturation process takes its course. After at least ten to eleven years Master Distiller Barry Crockett leads only the best barrels together for Midleton Very Rare. He may use not only drums younger cohorts, but also those in which whiskeys are matured already more than 20 years. This creates, vintage after vintage, a compilation of the best that Irish whiskey has to offer. Description On the nose strong, spicy herbaceous on the palate hints of almonds, juicy fruit and honey. Velvety soft and long-lasting tendes finish. Award winners of the gold at the 2005 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Double Gold in the 2007 Recommendation Like all premium - to enjoy whiskey neat, diluted with a drop of water, the flavors unfold better.
