After falling in love with Shortcross Rye And Malt I thought I’d order up a sample of Method And Madness Rye & Malt from Tiny Tipple for a comparison.
Reassuringly pale in colour.
Where’s the rye on the nose? It’s rather timid & tame.
Mild & malty mouthfeel.
It’s only on the finish a rich peppery spice develops showcasing the rye that’s in there.
After Shortcross I must admit to finding Method And Madness a bit of a letdown.
Despite a 60/40 rye/barley mix there was a distinct lack of warmth from this whiskey.
Too much of the method & not enough madness for me.
