Ive had my bottle of Midleton VR for awhile now. Ive probably sampled it 10 times in the last 1-1.5 years. The nice thing is I like it more and more each time I sample it. The last time, which was last week, I got the most enjoyment from it possibly since I paired it with a Partagas Black and a Fuente short story. Not sure if it was the smokes that made it better, but it was very enjoyable and a great change of pace from scotches and bourbon.
