Method and Madness, hvad er nu det? Method and Madness er et irsk mikro destilleri i Midleton med rødder i netop Midleton Distillery. En af grundpillerne i Method and Madness er at teste, undersøge og lege med destillering og modning af whiskey. Destilleriet ligger i Middeltons gamle Bonded Warehouse No. 2

Ud af det er der kommet to nye aftapninger. Den er en Wild Cherry Wood finish.
Finbarr Curran, Apprentice Bond Operations hos Method and Madness siger: "Curiosity got the better of us, but the result was better than we could have hoped. Wood from the cherry tree is characterised by its porousness; adding complex flavours of fine wine, capers and ginger spice."

Denne Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey har først ligget på ex-bourbon og sherry casks og herefter finished i wild cherry wood casks.

Noter:

Nose: Box Hedge Clippings, Coconut Fibre, Shredded Ginger

Taste: Fresh Green Herbs, Black Tea, Pot Still Spices


Den anden aftapning er en Acacia Wood finish.

Kevin O’Gorman, Master of Maturation siger: "How would acacia wood casks, famous for ageing French white wines, impact our Irish whiskey? A postulation with a perfect result: a world first for Single Pot Still. This calculated risk yields the rewards of the acacia’s tight grain, imparting a rich, nutty, chocolatey flavour, complemented by a mahogany hue."

Denne aftapning har først ligget på ex-bourbon og sherry casks og herefter finished i acacia casks.

Noter:

Nose: Sugared Almonds, Wood Spices, Crushed Cloves

Taste: Coffee Beans, Dark Chocolate, Chilli Oil

Finish: Fading Spices, Charred Wood, Barley Husk
