Midleton Very Rare / Bot.1984 Blended Irish Whiskey

Midleton Very rare was first produced in 1984 and there has been a new expression every year since. For the last 30 years each bottle in its beautiful wooden case carries the signature on the bottle and a certificate of Midleton’s 2nd generation Master Distiller Barry Crockett who was the face of Midleton Distillery. Barry retired two years ago and I now see that the signature on the bottle is of Barry’s Protegé and new Midleton Master Distiller who I have had the pleasure of meeting on a few occasions on my own visits to Midleton. The legend of Midleton whiskey continues but the one for sale on this page was the very very first!

Midleton Very Rare / Bot.1984 Blended Tasting Notes

  • Nose: Initial fruity sweetness from the grain component which gives way to the stronger pot still spice.
  • Taste: Lovely balance between the lighter grain orchard fruit sweetness and the pot still spice and barley flavour.
  • Finish: Typical long, lingering complex Midleton finish.

Stuart Says

When Midleton Very Rare was first released in 1984, under Master Distiller Barry Crockett, Midleton Distillery held back some of the 1984 bottled original whiskey so that it could be released in small quantities each year until stocks run out. Each 1984 First Release bottle is individually serial numbered and they are becoming increasingly collectible as significant markers in Irish Whiskey history. This original 1984 expression should not be confused by Whiskey Beginners with the release of a new Midleton Very Rare each year.
