First released in 1984, Midleton Very Rare incorporates a blend of different whiskey styles, ages, and types of barrels in this annual bottling typically using whiskeys aged between 12-30 years of age. Master distiller Barry Crockett was the first to create these whiskeys and now Brian Nation has that honor and title. The 2017 vintage highlights a blend of ex-bourbon barreled whiskeys aged from 12-32 years as well as 32 year-old Midleton single grain whiskey. Additionally, single pot still whiskey aged 26 years is also included in the blend. 2017 marks a new look for the bottle and presentation box. Bottled at 40% ABV, the whiskey is non chill-filtered.
