Method and Madness Single Pot Still Finished in Chestnut Casks
Single Pot Still — Ireland
Reviewed January 27, 2023 (edited April 6, 2023)
I’ll try any cask finish once and chestnut cask was new to me. I enjoyed it and I think the additional finish amped up some of what I like in an Irish whiskey with it’s intense nutty notes. I like a sweet whiskey and I know there’s going to be some serious honey to any Midleton distillate, but it lost a bit for lacking some complexity and the finish can trail off into a weirdly bitter almond shell taste. Still, great creamy texture and an easygoing drink when you want something that smacks of county fair roasted nuts.
