Since 1984, each Master Distiller of Midleton Very Rare has used their expertise and skill to bring a new Vintage Release to our portfolio. This year, in 2024, Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman has perfected Midleton Very Rare 2024 Vintage Release as a testament to 40 years of Midleton Very Rare mastery.

2024 marks the 40th anniversary of Midleton Very Rare and 40 years since their Master Distiller Emeritus Barry Crockett paved a path for their status as the pinnacle of Irish whiskey. By utilising the finest raw materials, the most advanced techniques and a dedicated team of craftspeople, Barry Crockett created a legacy that has grown through the commitment and skill of the Master Distillers and teams that followed him.

Midleton Very Rare stands apart from many luxurious whiskeys on the market. Not only is it a rare example of Irish whiskey and all that it has been known for throughout generations, it has the weight of three Master Distillers behind it, bringing a level of consistency and quality that is simply unsurpassed.

This special vintage release, a true landmark in their portfolio of annual vintage releases, has been crafted with care by Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman and his team.

Aroma

Richly scented vanilla with delightful floral and herbal notes to the fore, while aromas of orchard fruits gently build over time, adding ripe apple and sweet pear. The pot still spices, complemented by the nuanced American oak, add warming notes of cinnamon, clove and freshly mown hay that mingle with the delectable notes of toffee and heather honey.

Taste

Silky smooth and luscious at first with mouth-watering tropical fruit notes of peach and nectarine, combining effortlessly with the decadent tastes of crème brûlée, toffee-apple and chocolate dipped honeycomb. The delicate floral grain qualities and full-bodied pot still spices combine seamlessly with the charred oak influences, showcasing a wonderfully balanced yet complex and elegant whiskey.

Finish

Lasting finish which sees the fruits and American oak continue to softly linger until the very end.
