  • HYDE  10 Year Old Single Malt – Rum Cask Finish Irish Whiskey

    Rugged West Cork, in Ireland, provides the perfect maturing conditions for our award winning Irish whiskey.

    Originally distilled in a traditional copper pot still, HYDE whiskey 10 year old pure Single Malt is double matured. Firstly in flame charred, first fill, oak bourbon casks, and then ‘finished’ in vintage dark rum casks from the Caribbean.

    Hyde Whiskey is Handcrafted in very small limited edition batches and non-chill filtered for a more original character.

    Hyde is a presidential quality whiskey, celebrating the inaugural appointment of Ireland’s very first president Douglas Hyde and the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922.

    A 100% malted Irish barley whiskey from one single distillery – Hyde Single Malt whiskey is a true taste of IRELAND.

    RUM FINISH – DARK RUM CASK FROM THE CARRIBEAN

    At HYDE we use TWO different casks to age our Rum finished whiskey.

    STAGE ONE: BOURBON CASK : A 200 litre American White Oak Bourbon barrel. This American barrel was originally used just once to mature bourbon whiskey. It imparts flavours such as Vanilla, honey, fudge and caramel sweetness to the whiskey.

    STAGE TWO: RUM CASK: For an additional 9 months we transfer HYDE into charred Dark Caribbean Rum casks, made from American white oak. A 200 litre flame charred Rum cask sourced in the Caribbean. These casks originally contained dark Rum for at least 2 to 4 years.

    WHY? The flamed bourbon cask initially adds a sweeter vanilla and caramel flavour, followed by the charred dark Rum cask which adds a sweet spicy rum character to the final expression.

    WORTH IT! Premium dark Caribbean Rum casks are hard to find and are far more expensive to import all the way from the Caribbean to Ireland, but our view is that they are worth it for the rich fuller character it adds to our final HYDE Single Malt whiskey.
