Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy Single Pot Still
Created to be the top of the range in the new 'Single Pot Still' series. This is named after Midleton's long serving Master Distillery Barry Crockett.
This contains 3 levels of pure pot still whiskeys: Light, medium and what they call Mod4 (heavy pot still). Unusually for a Midleton a proportion is matured in new oak barrel, along with the usual ex-Bourbon cask ageing.
Limited to around 2500 bottles per annum.
Our tasting notes:
Pale gold in colour. Soft and delicate aromas with acacia honey, white flowers, baked bread and some caramel toffee nuances. On the palate it is soft and light with medium body and a highly complex flavour profile. Citrus fruits, mixed peel, toffee, cocao, honey, belgian waffles, engine oil and marshmallow all making an appearance. When reduced with water the aromas are even more delicate but with more fruitiness coming through. The palate is soft and well polished with extra acents of boiled sweets, pear drops, kiwi fruit and melon making an appearance. Smooth, light and soft on the finish.
