A rare rum cask finished Irish single malt from Hyde. This dram has been triple distilled in the traditional Irish fashion, and initially matured in former Bourbon barrels. The small batch whiskey (limited to just 5,000 bottles) has then been transferred to dark Caribbean rum casks, developing deep, sweet flavours. Bottled at 46% and without chill filtration, this is a dram of excellent structure.
Hyde Whiskey is named after the first President of the Republic of Ireland, Douglas Hyde. It just so happens that their Master Blender is also a Hyde – first name Conor! His signature of approval graces every bottle of Hyde whiskey that hits the shelves.
The year 1922, also featured on the label, is a reference to the establishment of an Irish “Free State” in that same year.
Hyde Whiskey are a throwback to the Irish whiskey tradition of “bonding” - purchasing spirit from other distilleries, and then aging and bottling it independently.
This bottling demonstrates the benefits of such an arrangement – allowing Hyde to produce high quality, small batch whiskies that have been treated to intriguing cask finishes.

A light, approachable nose that offers gentle aromas of light pineapple, green mangos, underripe bananas, sweet malted biscuits, vanilla and a little passion fruit cheesecake.
Creamy and soft on the palate, with a touch of treacle tart, ground black pepper, baked apples, cinnamon and raisins. Some sharp lemon rind and cereal sweetness adds balance.
Medium length, with a mouth-tingling hit of peppery oak, slight coffee bean, more sweet fruits and rummy brown sugar. The cask finish has definitely added a new dimension to this dram.
