Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy
Single Pot Still — Ireland
Reviewed February 3, 2022
I was a little disappointed with this when I first opened it-the wooden box and shapely bottle were so sumptuous I expected something spectacular from the first sip. Perhaps it needed to breathe a bit? Anyway, it’s come into its own now. It’s a lovely, leggy red-blonde (no tittering at the back there boys) with a sweet aroma of orange blossom and heather. The first sip smothers your tongue in a delightfully warm, fruity embrace, with more orange and honey and dried stone fruit flavours. The length is superb: integrated, concentrated and harmonious. Irish whiskey is sooo much better value than Scotch. This wasn’t cheap by any means, but it was about 1/4 the price of a comparable Scotch. Truly an exquisite dram.
