Hyde No 5, The Aras Cask

It is no secret that I have a love (weak spot) for Irish Whiskey, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that my thoughts about this whiskey is positive.

It makes you feel like you are walking in the clouds, matured for a minimum of 6 years, this golden liquid makes you lively. You can’t always hyde, you have to experience …

This Smooth 1860 commemorative edition (46%) is a single grain burgundy wine cask finished Irish Whiskey, matured (6yrs) in flame charred ex-bourbon oak whiskey casks before being transferred into toasted burgundy (France) red wine cask (9 months), to impart an unique burgundy red wine finish. Triple distilled!

Hyde no 5, The Aras Cask – 46%

  • Color: Amber gold
  • Nose: Lovely sweet, loads of different red fruit, strawberries, raspberries, an mixture of mandarin, mango, custard pudding, vanilla, burned toast soaked in honey and hints of ethanol
  • Palate: Sticky, but with a lovely base of dark fruit, blue berries, raisins, banana, chopped mango with drops of green apple juice, a palate explosion with tiny hint of bubblegum
  • Finish: Lovely lingering

This is a stunning whiskey, a whiskey you can use to charm your mates when they are a virgin in this area. Remind them, that a whiskey is best when it’s taken neat. Sooo, no ice, a drop of water or whiskey stones. No need for all the extra’s, just let it linger in the glass for a while and you will see, it’s getting better.
