Hyde No. 1 Presidents Cask 10yr Irish Whiskey - Sherry Cask Finish
Hyde Single Malt Irish whiskey is crafted from 100% malted Irish barley, and made in small batches using a traditional copper pot still. The whiskey is then matured for over ten years in flame-charred, first fill, ex-bourbon casks sourced from Kentucky before being finished for an additional six months in either a Sherry or Oak casks. Two separate casks are used to age their sherry finished whiskey.
For the first decade, Hyde single malt is aged in flame-charred, first fill, 200-liter oak bourbon barrels. The whiskey is then transferred into toasted Oloroso sherry casks, for an additional ten months. These casks are 250-liter Hogshead barrels crafted from white oak and sourced from Cadiz in the Andalusia region of South West Spain.
The flamed bourbon casks initially add sweeter vanilla and caramel flavor, followed by the toasted sherry casks which add a nutty, spice, dried fruit, and toffee character to the final dram (producer).
