Midleton Very Rare 2017 - old packaging

Postby Anjinsan » Sat Nov 25, 2017 11:29 pm

Hi all,

I have got my hands on a few bottles of the above, and am looking for some (fair) swaps (including cash where reasonable) for some of the following years of Midleton Very Rare:

2001, 2003, 2010, 2011

I also have a spare 2012, 2013, 2015 if some or all of them could be thrown in to a deal to make it work.

Hi John,

Sorry, I got no email notification that you had put up a question here, I only saw it there now.

I'll send you a PM.

Thanks & regards,

Why did they release the 2017 under the old packaging as well? Any thoughts? would the general opinion be that this packaging will be considerably more rare than the redesign for the same year?

Hi there,

As far as I know, they (IDL) had 8,000 Midleton wooden boxes left over when they moved to the new packaging for the 2017 release. They decided to use these boxes to create an 'old packaging' 2017 which they only released in to travel retail (duty free shops).

I think 2008 had an issue of around 47,000 bottles so 8,000 old pack 2017s is going be much rarer I suppose? FYI, if you keep an eye on the serial numbers of the MVR (on the front label, down to the bottom right) you see for sale on the auction sites you'll get an idea of how many bottles were issued (over time that is, you'd nearly need to follow it for a while to get a fair picture). I have no idea how many of the 2017 new packaging are being issued...

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Ian
