Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy Irish Whiskey NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy is a single pot still Irish whiskey produced at Ireland’s famed Midleton Distillery — the same site where heavy hitters like Jameson, Red Breast and Powers are crafted. It was introduced in 2011 as a limited edition release named for Midleton’s master distiller. They’re putting out around 2,500 bottles per year, and if you can find one, it’s worth savoring. Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy has a nose of barley, honey and freshly-cut grass. Drink up and you’ll find tons of fruit — peaches, apricots, pears and citrus zest — all intertwined with vanilla, tobacco and baking spices. There’s a lot going on, but everything plays together nicely. The finish is smooth and intensely flavorful, with more fruits — this time some berries — plus light oak and mild cinnamon. Overall, this is a fine-drinking whiskey. It starts smooth and finishes easy, but it’s not lacking in flavor or complexity. It’s a thoughtful dram, one to be enjoyed and contemplated in a comfortable chair.
