Whisky Reviews for Method and Madness 2002

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.38 points

  1. PEATYBOI scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    On the nose, strong notes of cream puffs, vanilla, caramel and syrupy peaches. An extremely sweet and distinctive nose in its own right. Definitely some kind of dessert drink.

    The palate matches the nose with notes on the fruitier side. At 46%, it is medium bodied and offers an abundance of vanilla ice cream, melon, and fresh white fruits.

    The finish is short with notes of lemon peel and citrusy sweetness.

  3. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Although rather pleasant, the nose is nothing exceptional: a little spicy malt, freshly cut young wood, ethereal vanilla, on the palate a touch of caramel and molasses, lemon and almond, chestnuts, then a peppery finish and spicy, somewhat fruity. Quinces, orange peels, bananas. It's not bad, but despite some peculiarities, it struggles to stand out, to assert itself. We lose the typicality of Irish whiskey in an experiment that gives few results.

    caramel and tinned peaches in syrup on the nose. a little fiery considering its 46% with a liitle burn and tingle. some obvious fresh fruits on the taste - but with a nice acidic side and quite drying on the finish.

    Light gold pour. Light peach syrup, fresh churned butter, grass. Mouth sweet cream butter, light peach syrup, grain alcohol. Nice semi-thick feel. Nice and easy, good stuff.

  8. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful mouth, medium nose, medium to not so nice finish
    • Nose
      Hay, damp grass, caramel and green apple, light acidity, peach, some sourdough, a bit mineral
    • Taste
      Honey, the 46% are pretty strong but round, very full, beautiful red and green apple in the interplay, acidity with sweet fruit, apricot, some honeydew melon, toffee, vanilla, fresh grass, limestone, white grapes with kernel, has some Japanese especially in the second half in the mouth, at the second and third sip also beautiful hops and malt
    • Finish
      Malty, bitter, slightly acidic apple remains in the background, superficial but bitter, younger oak and beer hops & malt, not quite my favorite finish, medium length
