Midleton Very Rare 2009

Postby vemo » Mon Dec 20, 2010 6:33 pm

I'm a big Irish Whiskey fan, and when I say I'm a big fan of Whiskey - I love DRINKING it, I'm not a collector.

I just received a bottle of Midleton Very Rare (2009) as a gift from my boss - and my question is this - what do I do with it?? I'd love your suggestions!

Do I just open the thing and drink it?
Do I save it and see if the value appreciates, and sell it in 20 years?
Do I save it for some special occasion in the future, ad drink it then?

I'm new to all this, so I'm not sure if whiskey appreciates over time in terms of value, taste etc? (And I'm not sure if I have the strength to keep this thing unopened and not see what it tastes like!)

Thanks!

Open and enjoy!!!!

IDL produce over 40,000+ bottles every year now,

The early vintages from 1985 are collectable, however the current bottlings are easy to come by, that said the 2009 had a shortened release period so is slightly more collectable but still to be had a cost price.

Drink it...and share some with your boss! That way, he'll be likely to repeat the gesture next year...

Like they said, drink it. Especially that it's great juice!

Mark, we had it together last year, right?
