Irish Distillers is the wonderfully stubborn subsidiary of a liquor behemoth — Pernod Ricard… and we are kinda glad that they are. They dog-headedly adhere to their time-tested methods and practices for making the world’s most popular Irish Whiskeys and they don’t give a fig-leaf what those crazy Frenchmen think about the matter. Irish Distillers makes the famous Jameson, Powers, Paddy, Redbreast, Green Spot, and Midleton Very Rare Whiskeys along with Huzzar Vodka and Cork Dry Gin.   
 
Barry Crockett is a legend at Midleton. His official title is “Master Distiller Emeritus” and they tend to bring the veteran out of retirement to help new kids learn from the master. Back in 2011, the historic Midleton brand was set on returning their Spirits to their roots of classic, Irish pot-distilling. Barry taught them how, so they named this fine dram after him and added it to their permanent core lineup
 
In addition to the revived pot-distillation, one of the unique things about Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy Whiskey is the unique aging combination. It’s aged in both ex-Bourbon casks AND in new American Oak. Off the top of our collective Flaviar heads, we can’t think of anyone else doing it that way. What this does is let the individual character of the malt shine through. But like all special things, it's availability is strictly limited—only 2,500 bottle per year—so get Irish and grab one of ‘em for yourself.

Outstanding in every way. My favorite whiskey. Period.
Trevor
One of my top favorites as far as a nice sipping whiskey goes.
Garry
Wonderfully smooth, this drinks very much like a Bourbon. A fantastic balanced flavor profile, and a deliciously long finish.
Andrew
Great Irish. Got to share with a few friends and all were amazed.
Thierry
I am rather fond of more peaty whiskey, but I tasted this whiskey that has appeared to me very fine in taste and highly successful ... it is too easy to drink despite the high price !!...
Bill
Excellent and easy to drink

I recently asked for two glasses (for me and my girlfriend) of this at a bar in Dublin. Cost me €66, and I asked for a funnel to pour it back in to the bottle (the barman didn't laugh). Nonetheless, it was a fine whiskey. I do feel that Yellow Spot is close enough to emulating the taste, though €160 is an excellent price when a bottle of this in Ireland is normally €215.
