Barry Walsh (Ex IDL Chief Blender), 4th November, 1998. 'On tasting the spirit, one is immediately aware that this whiskey is different – 30 years in wood has ensured that. There is a full bodied assault on the palate by clean, crisp, spicy, leathery, even fruity pot still notes – robust yes, but not overly so. One of the hall mark characteristics of great age in a whiskey is clearly evident – a pleasing dryish, gentle woodiness. No one flavour dominates; after 30 years in cask they have ironed out their differences and work together to achieve the other characteristic of a great old whiskey – complexity of taste, which, in this whiskey, is truly unique – there is no short cut to acquiring the particular complexity and the delicate mellow nuances of a 30 year old spirit. Only 400 hundred bottles remain of what was always recognised as a great whiskey at 15 years old. Now, after 30 years, this Midleton is an unsurpassed example of the wonderful taste of very old pure pot still Irish whiskey – truly one of the great and rarest whiskeys of the world.'
