Bearing the name of the celebrated second generation Midleton master Distiller, Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy represents a selection of pot stills which have been matured exclusively in American bourbon barrels with a subtle contribution from a pot still distillate which has matured in an unseasoned American barrel.
This pinnacle of the Single Pot Still range, Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy marked the first time since John Jameson that an Irish Distillers product had been named after a Master Distiller. Single Pot Still whiskey is unique to Ireland in general and to the Midleton Distillery Co. Cork, in particular and is regarded as the quintessential style of Irish whiskey. Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley and then triple distilled in traditional copper pot stills, Pot Still whiskeys are characterised by full, complex flavors and a wonderful creamy mouthfeel.
With over 30 illustrious awards received to date, this is a whiskey that truly embodies its name. In 2016 it was named the Best Irish Blended Pot Still Whiskey at The Irish Whiskey Awards.
Elegant aroma of vanilla and toasted oak complimented by a touch of lime, succulent green berries, pears and green sweet pepper. Light pepper carries onto fresh citrus, limes and mandarin orange sweetness on the palate. A hint of cinnamon with vanilla and oak reveals its years spent in American oak. The full spectrum of flavors lasts well into the finish, slowly fading to expose the clean American oak foundation.
