THE LIQUID

 

Though silent since 1975, the legendary Old Midleton Distillery still has the power to surprise. Not with a shout, nor with a clamour or a commotion, but with a gentle reawakening. Because from some quiet corner something unique has emerged – a Single Pot Still whiskey aged over an unprecedented 46 years and capturing, in all its complexities, the traditional signature style of the Old Midleton originally curated by Max Crockett.

 

On its journey this precious liquid has passed through bourbon, sherry and port casks, before finally maturing in a third-fill bourbon cask.

 

Its guardianship has passed too, from Master Distiller to Master Distiller, until finally Kevin O’ Gorman saw this truly unique Irish whiskey reach the peak of its perfection. A gentle reawakening.

 


TASTING NOTES

Nose

The first Impression is a vibrant, fruity bouquet intertwined with a pleasing

hint of exotic spices and soft sweetness. Decades of maturing in seasoned

oak casks add a woody definition to the initial notes, while the fragrance of

dark fruits and their zest effortlessly complement the delicate aromas of

pot still spices, hazelnut and worn leather.

Taste

An assortment of berry fruits and mellow pot still spices slowly build in

intensity, with each element enhancing the next. Subtle hints of anise and

ginger weave amongst the unmistakably sweet characteristics of malt and

oak. In the background, understated fruit flavours linger throughout.

Finish

The delicate spice and fruit flavours gradually fade, leaving the oak to have the final say.
