The first Midleton Very Rare bottling was released in 1984 and a new vintage is released every year. The individual nature of the selection process means that each year’s vintage provides its own unique character. The Midleton Very Rare range is not blended like any other whiskey. The uncompromising ritual and expertise of the Master Distiller leads to subtle but recognizable differences between the years. Prized amongst whiskey appreciators, there are very few collections of all vintages since the first release in existence.
