Irish whiskey maker Hyde has recently introduced two new whiskeys: 'The Éiregold Special Reserve Blend' and 'Hyde No. 11 The Peat Cask.' Both of these premium offerings come in 700ml bottles and were matured in American white oak, ex-bourbon barrels.
Thoughtfully crafted, the 'Éiregold Special Reserve' is distilled three times in a copper pot in Country Cork, before being aged for a minimum of four years. This sophisticated Irish whiskey is said to present a delicate balance between sweet and spicy, conjuring Bourbon notes and tastes of cinnamon and clove.
Alternatively, the 'Hyde No. 11' has been aged for eight years and is said to present a deep, smoky flavor with notes of apple, pear, and dried fruits. This bottle pays direct homage to Ireland's first president, Douglas Hyde, and comes in at a slightly higher ABV percentage.
