Hyde 1906 No.9 Iberian Cask is a limited edition single malt from Hibernia Distillers.
It has been triple distilled in a traditional copper still using 100% Irish malted grain barley from a single distillery.
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.
Bottled at 43% abv and only 5000 bottles produced in this batch.
Notes from the distillery:
NOSE: Dried dark fruits with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and blackberry for a grapemeets-raisin nose that defines Tawny PORT.
TASTE: Notes of green apples, honey, citrus, spice, dried fruit, black pepper, and hazelnut, with a vanilla-like buttery finish that lingers on the palate.
FINISH: Medium to long with a grapey, malty, spicy, lingering finish.
