Whisky Reviews for Midleton 1973

  1. wheatfield scored this whisky 93 points Expert Junior

    Pours medium copper. Nose is full of cooked fruits (pears, peaches). Machine shop /diesel engine. Mouth is strong, feel is thick. Pear syrup, chutneys with cooked fruits and touches of cloves, cardamom. Heavier notes of charcoal and condensed honey. Something approaching fermented grains, fermented sugars. An impression of mint on the finish, with all the fermented and cooked fruits. Wow.

    This 30-year-old Irish pot still whiskey was distilled at Midleton in 1973 and bottled in 2003 after maturing in a combination of ex-Bourbon, Sherry, and Port casks.

    The nose is light and crisp with red apples and grapes, hints of toffee, cocoa, vanilla, and a touch of oak. The taste is spicy and thick with cinnamon, red apples, honey, a hint of clove, lemon zest, and touches of red grapes and oak. The finish is long and lingering with spices that softly fade away to reveal honey, vanilla, and a touch of toffee. Outstanding!
