Whisky reviews for Midleton Very Rare

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    And another vintage of this Midleton Very Rare. As said before; much more collected that actually consumed. As Addy says correctly today's bottle offerings are definitely not worth the money. But still a nice daily dram though.
    • Nose
      This vintage bottled in 2005 has more woody notes than other expressions I had before. The usual yellow fruit (prunes, mango and Golden Delicious apples) are there as well mixed with cut grass and flowery notes. Later on cereal and roasted almonds.
    • Taste
      Fudgy notes of toffee and treacle intermingled with citrus notes of gooseberries and peel zest. Some acacia honey, and custard powder. Followed with hints of dried apricots and figs. Cinnamon. Gingerbread and a touch of toasted oak at the background.
    • Finish
      Medium long with quite some caramel. Vanilla. A little clove at the end. A decent MVR, but not a real high flyer.

  3. addyhd did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    verry nice vatted whiskey with no age statement. i can taste there are some beautyfull old whiskeys in there, mixed with some fresh younger ones i supose, nicely balanced, but not enough power at 40%...its a verry good starterdram.. great nose great taste, but for me not worth the price. tasted 2 drams when visiting someone who had a bottle open. But.......it comes with a nice wooden box for that price
