The rebranded Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy is now availble. This Whiskey was created to commemorate the career of the former master distiller who retired in 2013 after 47 years at the distillery. Barry himself helped to formulate this single pot still and it is highly regarded as one of the best in the range. The pot still elements used are drawn from light, medium and heavy styles and the spirit is mostly matured in 1st fill bourbon casks with a small amount going into virgin Amercian oak. There is no age statement but some of the whiskey used is very old (around 25 years).
NOSE: Soft and delicate aromas with acacia honey, white flowers, baked bread and some caramel toffee nuances
TASTE:On the palate it is soft and light with medium body and a highly complex flavour profile. Citrus fruits, mixed peel, toffee, cocao, honey, belgian waffles, engine oil and marshmallow all making an appearance. When reduced with water the aromas are even more delicate but with more fruitiness coming through. The palate is soft and well polished with extra acents of boiled sweets, pear drops, kiwi fruit and melon making an appearance. Smooth, light and soft on the finish.
