Method and Madness 2002 Enhanced with French Limousin Oak Casks 46% 700ml information

The Method and Madness 2002 Single Malt Whiskey from Midleton Distillery is a distinguished Irish whiskey with a rich and complex flavor profile. Released as a limited edition with only 2500 bottles available, this 14-year-old whiskey was initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels and then uniquely finished in a variety of casks including French Limousin oak, virgin Spanish oak, acacia wood, wild cherry wood, and mulberry wood. Each type of cask imparts its own distinctive characteristics, making this a truly exceptional whiskey.

The French Limousin oak casks contribute light perfume notes, while the bourbon barrels offer a toasted, nutty character. Spanish oak casks infuse dry barley and ice cream cone wafer notes, with acacia wood casks adding hints of fine wine and ginger spice. Wild cherry wood casks provide capers and additional ginger spice, and mulberry wood casks introduce a complex array of flavors.

Bottled at 46% ABV in a 700 ml size, this whiskey presents a sensory journey from the moment it's poured. On the nose, it reveals strong notes of cream puffs, vanilla, caramel, and syrupy peaches, evolving into a palate rich with vanilla ice cream, melon, and fresh white fruits. The finish is characterized by short yet memorable notes of lemon peel and citrusy sweetness.

This unique expression from the Irish Distillers Stable, part of the innovative Method and Madness range, is a must-try for any whiskey enthusiast, offering an unforgettable and special tasting experience.
