Very Rare Irish Whiskey 2018 Edition
94 points, “Each MVR vintage has its own character, and the latest version has a sweet motif coddled in a soft, fruity bounty… Collectible.” – Wine Advocate
Representing Ireland’s most acclaimed and coveted whiskey, Midleton Very Rare is a blend of the finest distillates handpicked by the Master Distiller, formerly by Master Distiller Emeritus Barry Crockett (before his retirement in 2014) and now by his successor Brian Nation. Aged between 12 and 28 years, and matured exclusively in seasoned and lightly charred Bourbon barrels, 2018 is the 35th release of this small batch expression.
Originally launched in 1984 to celebrate the whiskeys of the Midleton distillery, a new vintage has been released every year since then. Each bottle carries an individual number and the signature of the Master Distiller. The individual nature of the selection process for each vintage of Midleton Very Rare means that each year’s vintage provides its own character. This one displays marmalade, cantaloupe melon, green apple, banana, conference pear, Scottish tablet, tempura batter, crème brûlée, citrus, honey nut cornflakes and pepper. Prized among collectors, only around 50 casks of Midleton are released every year, so it really is extremely rare.
