In honor of the upcoming holiday, St. Patrick’s Day we would like to highlight a product that hails all the way from Ireland. Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy is a single pot still Irish whiskey that was first introduced by Irish Distillers in 2011. The name Barry Crockett pays tribute to Midleton’s Master Distiller.
After 47 years of work, Crockett said goodbye in February of 2013. After much success, it’s only fitting that the man behind Midleton for over 30 years had a bottle honored after him. The expression of the Irish whiskey reflects Crockett’s overall personality. It’s an older, yet elegant selection of Pot Still whiskeys which is exclusively matured in American bourbon barrels.
A delicate whiskey, the aroma of Barry Crockett Legacy is a complex combination of spice and fruit with notes of toasted wood. On the palate, this Irish whiskey is full bodied with a harmonious balance of sweet lime, berries and spicy green pepper. With the introduction of the virgin American barrels, it offers a sweet vanilla flavor and a subtle char. The finish is satisfying long with flavors of caramel and fruit that fade into a sweet woody note.
How to Drink + Pair
Overall Midleton Barry Crockett is a sweet and malty whiskey with a pleasant oily texture. We suggest drinking it neat and pairing with salmon cooked in a citrus sauce or with lobster soup.
Did we mention this product is in very, very low supply? In fact, only 2,500 bottles are released each year. Celebrate St. Patrick’s the right way with a bottle of Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy.
