Description: A very rare chance to acquire an almost complete set of the Midleton Very Rare bottlings. There are 37 of the 40 bottles in this lot, the only ones missing are the 1986, 1991 and 2003 bottlings. All 80s bottles are 75cl and all bottles 1990 onwards are 70cl unless otherwise stated in the 'Lot condition' section. All are in good condition and have the relevant paperwork except for any noted in the 'Lot condition' section. We are reducing the buyer's commission on this lot to 5% rather than the normal 10%. Whiskey Bidders will deliver this lot free of charge for delivery on the island of Ireland, if the winning bidder wants it shipped internationally then this will be at their expense.
We have taken great care to provide very clear photos of each lot. Please study these carefully before you place a bid to ensure that you are satisfied with the lot's condition.
All our lots are pre-owned so there may be some element of normal wear & tear present. If we ourselves have noted something unusual (beyond normal wear & tear) we will have mentioned it in the 'Condition' section.
We cannot be responsible for natural blemishes in the grain of wooden presentation boxes - wood is a natural product and it comes the way it comes.
