Hyde 1906 No 9 Port Cask Finish

70cl

Hyde 1906 No 9 Port Cask Finish is a single malt Irish whiskey which has been triple distilled in a traditional copper still using 100% Irish malted grain barley from a single distillery.

As a result, this is exceptionally smooth, yet the ageing process lends it barrel loads of complexity. Initially aged for a period of at least 8 years in 200-litre, flame charred ex-bourbon oak casks from Kentucky, this was then transferred into 200-litre first-fill vintage tawny port oak casks sourced from the Portuguese village of Pinhao in the Douro Vally region in northern Portugal for a finishing period of 9 months.
