The first Midleton Very Rare edition to carry the name of Midleton Master Distiller Brian Nation instead of his predecessor, Barry Crockett.
The nose is grassy with a hint of ginger and allspice, touches of honey, vanilla, and oak in the background. The taste has notes of lemongrass, black pepper, ginger, and allspice balanced by honey, vanilla, and a hint of milk chocolate. The finish is long and slightly tart with subtle spices. Excellent!
