Type: Irish Pot Still
Score: 94 points
This Irish pot still whiskey honors longtime Midleton master distillery Barry Crockett, and uses first-fill bourbon casks with a few virgin oak casks. The nose is subtle and elegant with citrusy lime and a touch of pears, along with muted touches of vanilla and toasted almonds. The taste is thick, chewy, and peppery at first, but fades to reveal citrusy lime and grapefruit notes with a touch of vanilla. The finish is complex, creamy, and smooth.
