Method and Madness Chestnut Cask-Finished, 46%

Price: $90 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton




Perfumy and earthy aromas dominate the nose: dried roses and orange peel, talcum

powder, moss, sandalwood, granola, toast with honey. Flavors of toasted cedar, spruce, and

moss, woven with spice and pecans, are juxtaposed with bright lemon, almond cream,

orange blossom water, and rose petals. The finish is soft and savory, with lingering

earthiness. A curious profile that dips and weaves, its character almost intangible, but

ultimately in balance.
