Midleton Very Rare 2024 Irish Whiskey

This MVR Irish 2024 edition, master distiller Kevin O’Gorman increased the grain percentage and the amount of medium pot still whiskey as well as raising the number of first-fill American oak whiskey barrels of both pot and grain whiskey. The ex-bourbon casks are lightly charred, creating a whisky with succulent fruits, peeled ginger and golden syrup.

On the nose, first there’s apricot, hay, floral honey, and creamy fudgy goodness. Then pear drops, floral notes like Turkish delight, aromatic clove, and a buttery quality like a warm croissant. When drunk the luscious pot still character gives you a silky palate backed by rich baking spice, toasted oak, and tropical fruit. Vanilla and toffee apples add depth which finishes in a creamy, floral, and vibrant.
