This latest release is said to mark an exciting move into unchartered territory for the distillery team, showcasing the art of experimentation that defines the micro distillery’s spirit while offering a rare and distinctive taste experience.
The meticulous selection of first-fill American Bourbon barrels and second-fill Sherry casks was specifically chosen to give a delicate imparting of flavour that wouldn’t overpower the distillate.
Method and Madness Single Malt 7 Year Old, is said to deliver notes of fragrant lavender, floral honey and banana bread on the nose. Followed by notes of tangy citrus, caramelised apple and dried herbs on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Barrett Stapleton, Head Distiller at Irish Distillers’ Micro Distillery, said: "At Midleton, we don't typically produce single malt, but the Micro Distillery provides us with an unparalleled playground to experiment and play with different ingredients. In creating this expression, the team ventured beyond the realms of the norm at Midleton, unlocking new flavours and the result is a truly unique expression."
Method and Madness Single Malt 7 Year Old, is now available in Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Norway, Brand Homes, France, Global Travel Retail and online, for a RRP of €95.00.
