Hyde No1 10YO Sherry Finish
This Hyde is an interesting whisky which have been matured on First fill Oloroso Sherry casks and without chill-filtration it was bottled at 46% ABV. I can’t say I know that much about the whisky or the distillery but it sure will be very nice to try it out.
Vanilla, chocolate layered with peaches, citrus, malt, honey and assorted spices. A nice mix invites your senses.
A creamy and fruity taste that marries well together and with hints of vanilla and a little malty.
A long finish with notes of oak and a rich blend of spices.
An exciting whiskey from Ireland, which I gladly would have liked more of. I do not and have not been able to find out how long the final maturation in the sherry cask are. But I think that I might have want a little longer final maturation.
