Whisky Focus - Method and Madness Unveil Two New Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey's

Method and Madness Unveil 2 New Irish Pot Still Whiskey's


16th September 2019

Method and Madness has released two new experimental Irish single pot still whiskey's, both matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks and one finished in Wild Cherry Wood and the other finished in Acacia Wood.

Method and Madness Wild Cherry Wood Finish and Method and Madness Acacia Wood Finish.

Method and Madness the innovatively experimental whiskey brand from the creative Irish whiskey making team down at the Midleton Distillery in Cork, Ireland, has added two new experimental limited edition Irish whiskeys to its Method and Madness  range; and I am pleased to say that both new whiskey's are what Irish Distillers does best, Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey's, or at least I hope that they are a couple of examples of what they do best.

Given the experimental nature of the Method and Madness whiskey range the two new single pot still whiskey's should offer Irish whiskey fans something a bit different to the pot still whiskey's which they produce at Midleton which they are already familiar with.

The first whiskey is the Method and Madness Wild Cherry Wood Finish, it was initially matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon and sherry casks before being finished for between seven months and four years in nine casks crafted from wild cherry wood, sourced from France. Wood from the cherry tree is characterised by its porosity, which results in significant interaction between the wood and the whiskey and the folks at Midleton say that it has added complex flavours of shredded ginger, coconut and black tea to the ex-bourbon and sherry cask-matured whiskey.

Bottled at 46% ABV, Method and Madness Irish Single Pot Still Wild Cherry Wood Finish is available in six markets, including Ireland, the UK and global travel retail, from September 2019 at the RRP of 92.

The second new whiskey is the Method and Madness Acacia Wood Finish, a single pot still Irish whiskey that has been finished in barrels crafted from Acacia wood, sourced from France, for between one and four years. Similar to the Wild Cherry Wood Finish, the Acacia Wood Finish was initially matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon and sherry casks before being finished in the dense acacia wood which has a tight grain that is said to slowly impart rich nutty and chocolatey flavours and a dark mahogany hue.

Method and Madness Irish Single Pot Still Acacia Wood Finish is bottled at 46% ABV and is available exclusively through the Celtic Whiskey Shop in Ireland from September 2019 at the RRP of 92.

You will find the current Method and Madness whiskey range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
