This week at the James Griffin Pub we have an array of entertainment to suit everyone.
18.10.2017 – Whiskey Wednesday
Hyde No. 1 (President’s Cask) is a very special, 10-year-old, pure single malt Irish whiskey available at the James Griffin Pub, this Whiskey is finished in a carefully selected Spanish Oloroso Sherry cask that gives it a subtle yet complex flavour with a very distinctive personality.
Hyde Irish Whiskey provides the discerning whiskey drinker with a fuller more complex flavour.
This President’s Cask release is a limited edition of just 5,000 bottles with each bottle individually numbered. Bottled at a higher than normal 46% ABV, it is also non chill filtered leaving it packed with a robust malty flavour.
Nose: The virgin oak from the first fill bourbon barrels is dominant after ten years of maturation. There is also some fruit as one would expect from the sherry influence.
Taste: The initial impression is malt heavy with a warm and full mouth fill. Again, the oak is quite pronounced along with some bitter-sweet dried fruits and orchard fruits, burnt oak notes and black pepper spiciness. Surprisingly smooth on the tongue for a double distilled whiskey at 46%! The addition of a splash of water yields an exceptionally smooth and mellow ball of malt to swirl in the hand.
Finish: Long and is dominated by burnt oak and pepper with a hint of bitter chocolate in the background.
The Oloroso Sherry Cask finish has definitely added some real magic to this ten year old malt.
Serve – neat or add a little water to explore more
