MIDLETON VERY RARE VINTAGE RELEASE 2021

Heralding the 37th edition in our world renowned and highly collectable range, in his final days as Master Distiller, Kevin continued the long-standing tradition of hand-selecting whiskeys reserved for this coveted annual expression from Midleton Distillery’s supreme inventory for the last.

Chosen from the most exceptional quality single pot still and single grain Irish whiskeys laid down over the past four decades in Midleton, Co Cork, Midleton Very Rare 2021 is aged from 13 to 35 years in lightly charred ex-bourbon American oak barrels.

Kevin O’Gorman selected a high pot still inclusion at 83%, as well as a notable contribution from third fill casks. The result is a luxurious and balanced whiskey with rich pot still connotations, where the distillate takes centre stage thanks to the use of refilled casks – a fitting legacy for one of Irish whiskey’s great Master Distillers.

The 2021 Vintage
Aroma
A delicate introduction of Sweet Mandarin Orange Citrus with Green Banana and Vanilla. The light Herbal notes develop until the typical Pot Still Spices, including Cardamom, Nutmeg and Peppers, show the signature Midleton style. Whilst a touch of Cedarwood and Charred American Oak add to the complexity.

Taste
The smooth initial mouthcoating is initially sweet with Vanilla and red Apple, before the more robust spices, Cinnamon and Clove with a slice of Root Ginger, show their presence. There is a polished Antique Wood contribution from the Barrels alongside some light Tannins and Charred Oak.

Finish
The finish is extra long as the spices subside giving way to Green Fruit and Stalks of Barley.
