Midleton Dair Ghaelach was recently awarded Irish Whiskey of the Year in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2016
Midleton Dair Ghaleach. It means, quite simply, Irish oak. This whiskey has been matured in barrels made from virgin Irish oak grown on the Ballaghtobin Estate in Co. Kilkenny and what the oak brings to this special whiskey is the true and unique flavour of Ireland.
Its provenance as individual as its fragrance, its journey from grain to glass as distinguished as its finish, this is a whiskey like no other.
Jim Murray’s review of it himself, he scored Midleton Dair Ghaelach a 97, which is just .5 less than the Crown Royal Rye which won it all. He also put it 3rd on the top Whiskies of the World list as well as naming it Irish Whiskey of the Year and Irish Pot Still Whiskey of the Year. That in of itself gives it more credence when you factor in the backstory of how this whiskey came to be.
Finally, piling on the views of others, you find scores such as Tastings (94), WhiskyCast (92) and The Whiskey Reviewer (A). Also, there is the little matter of Whisky Advocate just today naming Midleton Dair Ghaelach as its Irish Whiskey of the Year.
