About the Whisky:
Bearing the name of the celebrated second generation Midleton Master Distiller, Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy represents a selection of pot still whiskeys 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. 

As a tribute to the man who is inextricably linked to the Midleton distillery and who has more than anyone, shaped the renowned Midleton style, Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy displays a distinctive Pot Still complexity yet is refined and poised on the finish. Bottled at 92 proof.

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.


AROMA:
Elegant aroma of vanilla and toasted oak complimented by a touch of lime, succulent green berries, pears and green sweet pepper.

TASTE:
Light pepper carries onto fresh citrus, limes and mandarin orange sweetness. A hint of cinnamon with vanilla and oak reveals its years spent in American oak.

FINISH:
The full spectrum of flavors lasts well into the finish, slowly fading to expose the clean American oak foundation.

Awards/Reviews

Master - Irish Whiskey Masters 2022

Gold - Intl Spirits Challenge 2022

Gold - SF World Spirits Competition 2022

96 Points, Platinum, Superlative - Tastings.com

"Gold color. Aromas and flavors of blanched almond and sea spray, amontillado and a bite of jamon, brioche and marzipan, and dried apricot with a round, lively, dry medium body and a tingling, intricate, medium-long finish with impressions of sun dried white grapes, orange blossom honey, cinnamon stick, and vanilla. A focused Whiskey with sweet and sunny flavors with hints of sea salt; would make a lovely pairing with oysters."

95 Points - Whisky Advocate:

"This is mastery of American oak! Polished wood, cinnamon cereals, dry spices of pepper, allspice, and paprika, and a riot of mostly overripe fruit: custard apple, mango, brown banana, baked apricot dessert, and fresh fig. Caramel, date slices, treacle, and cracker bread flavors are bathed in feisty pot still spices and fleeting green apple, before a lush, rich sweetness of banoffee pie, vanilla, and cinnamon descends. The finish is seemingly eternal." (JM, Winter 2018)

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Intended as a tribute to Midleton Master Distiller Barry Crockett, this delicate, silky whiskey has a golden hue and a lovely fresh-apple scent. On the palate, apple and ripe pear meld with butterscotch and a touch of banana on the long finish. Meant for savoring straight up." 

93 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2022
"An attractive floral perfume and aromas of toasty oak lead to a multi-layered flavour profile combining roasted coffee, sweet chocolate, black pepper and vanilla spice. Well-executed, and very easy drinking!"
