This is without question a true masterpiece, what Midleton delivers here. Something so self-contained can only be created in Ireland with its very own traditions.
Unusually would be grossly understated, which flooded olfactory to the olfactory cells. If fruit flavors in Scottish whiskeys are mostly of an associative nature, they become downright plastic and real - you can smell real Gali melons and papaya here. An entire basket of tropical fruits is served here, in addition to the mentioned bananas, mangos and passion fruit. Sweet creamy vanilla and creamy dark caramel sweets. Spicy oak with edgy smells of an old dusty oak cabinet and tart-sweet tobacco notes testify to the maturity and age of this substance. If you smell longer, good old acquaintances from the sherry front come to the fore. Subtle dried fruit, primarily air-dried aromatic apricots and light raisins. Alcohol does not disturb this sensual experience at any moment.
In the mouth, this intense fruit ripening continues without any breakage. A flood of tropical fruits storms over the taste buds with an oily force, they are almost overwhelmed to sort it all out. Sweet and creamy like a cream dish from the fruits mentioned, this whiskey clings to all areas of the mouth. Honey melons and orange-yellow papaya, soft juicy mangoes and passion fruit juice. In addition, immediately a tart spicy oakiness, which intensifies the whole and struggling alternately with the extremely fruity sweetness for supremacy. An incredible spectacle, what's on offer! The alcohol brings pleasant warmth without burning.
Long and creamy sweet, with an intense and extremely delicate honey melon aroma, which does not want to subside anymore. Underlaid with beautiful soft oak flavors and sweet caramel, the finish is phenomenal. You do not stop smacking, so appetizing everything is done.
