Silent Midleton

The Midleton Very Rare Silent Distillery Collection is a collection of six releases. The first is a 45-year-old peated Irish single malt.⁣ ⁣ There will be one release annually until the year 2025, ranging in age from 45 to 50 years old, all from the Old Midleton Distillery (operating 1825-1975). The last release will clash with Old Midleton Distillery’s 200th birthday. ⁣ ⁣ Tasting notes from the distillery: ⁣ Nose: The first impression is very rich with deep, dark spices on a satisfying antique oak base. An earthy note of freshly cut peat, along with chamois leather, is lifted by a twist of grapefruit. The very old sherry wine seasoned hogshead cask contributes a touch of ripe honeydew melon and red berries as well as the sweet spices of toasted oak.⁣ ⁣ Taste: Instantly rich with the initial peppery spices slowly softening as the influence of the malted barley shows through. Liquorice root, barley sugar and honey bring some sweetness, just given a little edge by a touch of sherbet. All build on a solid foundation of toasted oak.⁣ ⁣ Finish: The rich spices and malted barley are slow to fade.⁣ ⁣ 48 beautiful looking 750ml bottles in Ireland will retail at: €35,000.
