Midleton 1973 Master Distiller's Private Collection #41421 56% 700ml information

The Midleton 1973 Master Distiller's Private Collection #41421 is a remarkable testament to the meticulous craftsmanship of the Midleton Distillery. This 700ml pure pot still Irish whiskey, bottled at a robust 56% ABV, stands as a shining example of premium whiskey production. Limited to just 400 bottles, this exclusive edition was bottled in 2003 after aging for three decades in one of the last pot still casks from the old Midleton distillery. It is elegantly presented in a wooden box complete with a stopper and key, making it a coveted item for collectors and connoisseurs alike.

This vintage whiskey carries significant historical value, as one of the bottles was famously presented to astronaut Neil Armstrong by Gay Byrne in 2003 at the National Concert Hall. Assembled by the renowned master distiller Barry Crockett, it features some of the last remaining pot still whiskeys from the Old Midleton Distillery. Each bottle was aged to perfection in the Master Distiller's private cellar, ensuring a level of quality that is second to none.

Renowned for its intricate layers of flavor and aroma, this whiskey has earned a legendary status among collectors. While it is more often collected than tasted, those fortunate enough to savor it will encounter a complex and multi-faceted profile. The bottle available for sale remains in pristine condition, though the outer box has been opened for photography purposes.


  • What makes the Midleton 1973 Master Distiller's Private Collection #41421 unique?

    This limited edition was created by master distiller Barry Crockett and includes some of the last remaining pot still whiskeys from the Old Midleton Distillery. Only 400 bottles were produced, making it a rare and highly sought-after collectible.

  • What is the significance of the year 1973 for this whiskey?

    The year 1973 marks the distillation date of this whiskey, and it was aged for a full 30 years before being bottled in 2003. This long maturation period contributes to its complex flavor profile.

  • Is this whiskey still in its original packaging?

    Yes, the bottle is in new condition and comes in its original wooden presentation box. However, the outer box was opened for photography purposes.

  • Can you provide more details about the tasting notes?

    Of course! The whiskey is known for its fruity and waxy characteristics, with layers of complex flavors and aromas that are a hallmark of old pot still whiskeys from Midleton.
