Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy Irish Whiskey (750ml)
Intended as a tribute to Midleton Master Distiller Barry Crockett, this delicate, silky whiskey has a golden hue and a lovely fresh-apple scent. On the palate, apple and ripe pear meld with butterscotch and a touch of banana on the long finish. Meant for savoring straight up. (KN)
Like the man himself, this is altogether more considered and elegant, mixing whiskeys up to 25 years old for a complex and less bruising experience than the Powers. Instead, lemon and lime zest, kumquat, and blood orange entwine themselves around vanilla, nutmeg, and soft, drying tannins. No big knockout punches, but it goes the distance and wins unanimously and easily on points. (DR, Fall 2011)
Here it is, the coveted Barry Cockett Legacy bottling from the Midleton Distillery. This is a blend of whiskies up to 25 years old drawn from bourbon and new American oak barrels. Only 2,500 bottles were produced and we will be getting very few of them, so don't wait.
