Method And Madness Single Pot Still Acacia Wood is a testament to the innovative spirit of the Method and Madness range. This whiskey is a celebration of experimentation and a fusion of traditional whiskey-making techniques with unconventional wood finishes.

The journey of this whiskey begins with its initial maturation in a combination of ex-bourbon and sherry casks. This traditional maturation process lays the foundation for its character. However, what sets it apart is its finishing period in barrels crafted from acacia wood. Sourced from France, acacia wood is dense and known for its tight grain. This characteristic of the wood slowly imparts rich nutty and chocolatey flavours to the whiskey, enhancing its complexity.

On pouring, the whiskey reveals an amber hue in the glass, with long tears indicating its full-bodied nature. The tasting experience is a sensory delight:

  • Appearance: Amber with long tears.
  • Aroma: Sweet caramel and chocolate are at the forefront, followed by a touch of coffee. There's a hint of green apple, reminiscent of fresh orchards, complemented by sweet marzipan and toasted pinions. Herbal notes linger in the background, with a soft touch of wood.
  • Flavour: The palate is treated to a dry, velvety texture. There's a noticeable wood astringency, which adds depth. The sweetness of brown sugar and chocolate dominates, with notes of baked peaches, marzipan, and sugar coming through. A few black coffee beans add a touch of bitterness, balancing the sweetness.
  • Mouthfeel: Thick and full-bodied, with a spicy kick at the back of the palate.

This whiskey is not just about its taste. It tells a story of innovation, of pushing boundaries, and of creating something truly unique. It's a whiskey that's perfect for a rainy evening or after a challenging day. It's the kind of whiskey that you'd want to enjoy while watching a movie – a "Netflix and chill" kind of whiskey. It's a comforting hug in a glass, the perfect ending to a delightful dinner.

For those looking to enjoy this whiskey, it can be consumed neat, on the rocks, or even in a cocktail, showcasing its versatility. And for those looking to add it to their collection, it's a must-have, especially if you're planning a visit to Dublin.

In conclusion, Method And Madness Single Pot Still Acacia Wood is a whiskey that challenges conventions and offers a tasting experience like no other. It's a blend of tradition and innovation, resulting in a drink that's both familiar and new. So, whether you're a whiskey enthusiast or a newcomer eager to explore, this is one whiskey you wouldn't want to miss. Purchase online or in-store now.
