Midleton 1991 Single Cask for The Whisky Exchange. Image courtesy the Whisky Exchange. This 20-year-old ex-Bourbon cask was an exclusive bottling of Midleton’s single pot still whiskey for The Whisky Exchange in London, and the nose is aromatic and intense with vanilla, linseed oil, kiwi and other fresh fruits, berries, and hints of oak and cedar. The taste is fruity and spicy with peaches, grapes, papaya, and mango notes, along with cinnamon, vanilla, dark chocolate, and ginger. The finish is long and fruity with orange peel, an oakiness that becomes more prominent, and touches of honey and vanilla. Excellent! (December, 2013)
