Midleton Very Rare 2023 Vintage

Consistently awarded the highest honours at the most prestigious awards, Midleton’s annual Very Rare is widely agreed to be the pinnacle of Irish whiskey. This special 2023 edition marks their 40th vintage to ever be released.



Colour Gold to amber

Nose An intricate medley of fruits including nectarines, ripe melon, green apple, and apricot. Delectable golden syrup, notes of vanilla, combined with a honeycomb sweetness and freshly roasted coffee beans.

Palate Succulent fruits and a distinctive creaminess. The pot still spices complement the ever-present fruits of candied orange and dried apricot.

Finish The fruits and pot still spices build to a crescendo before giving way, leaving the final say to the oak tannins and antique grain whiskey


From the same distillery that holds Jameson, Redbreast and Green Spot under its wing, Midleton’s Very Rare is a special annual affair that causes a flurry amongst collectors and investors alike.

Barry Crockett, who was Master Distiller until retirement in 2013, stated that this annual release came about with the distillery's intent "to produce the best whiskey possible”. As those who count themselves among their die-hard following will know, this is the very much the case. And each vintage is distinct.

Bottles are individually numbered, signed by current Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman, and presented in their own luxury collector’s case.
