Barry and his father before him did much to help shape Midleton so it’s fitting that the Crockett name sits proudly on this excellent single pot still Irish whiskey. In Barry’s own words “this delivers the full expectation of what people would have had in relation to pot still whiskey from the Middleton Distillery.”

(bottle N0. 003543 MSPS.11) Clear, bright golden.
Inviting and delicate. New leather, cedar wood, toast and vanilla with acacia honey, red apple, dried apricot, cocao, lime zest and honeysuckle blossom. Water teases out fruity aromas.
This graceful yet characterful whiskey is light to medium bodied and delicately spicy with cinnamon, white pepper and pencil shavings which balances sweet vanilla, ripe red apple and boiled sweet fruit. Notes of lime zest, doughy bread crust, cacao and warm woody flavours. Water brings out more more sweet red apple and pencil shavings.
Medium length finish with rich vanilla, dried apricot and red apple balanced by elegant oak and delicate spice. A truly lovely and very knowledgably man suitably honoured by a fabulous whiskey.
