This Method & Madness release started it's life in both Bourbon and Sherry casks before being finished in Wild Cherry wood casks. Cherry timber is semi-ring porous as opposed to ring porous like oak and chestnut. Meaning that it is not as strong or water-tight when used for coopering. Notes of fine wine, capers and ginger spice.

The New Midleton distillery has been described as “the engine that drove the growth of Irish whiskey” and it is easy to understand why that statement describes the huge complex that is based in Midleton, Co. Cork. Many brands that are known worldwide for the smooth subtle Pot Still Taste that is uniquely Irish are sourced from the new Midleton Distillery. Brands such as Redbreast, Green spot, Yellow spot, Powers, Paddy and the now ubiquitous Midleton Very Rare are all produced by one of the most modern distilleries in the world and their growth is only possible by the scale at which the new Midleton distillery produces various styles of Whiskey. The older expressions of whiskey from the midleton distillery are some of the most sought after and you would be lucky to find a comparable product elsewhere.
