A President’s Whiskey by Suzi Redmond
Hyde 10yr Single Malt €69.95
A limited edition of 5000 bottles were created to pay homage to our first president Douglas Hyde. This whiskey has a quality that would delight any president.
We were fortunate enough to taste this recently and it really was something special.
It has a beautiful sherried nose packed with fruits, such as peaches, oranges and lemons,with a creamy vanilla tone with some lovely spices. Now add a light touch of honey, pencil shavings and you have one complex but alluring aroma all of which flows wonderfully onto the palate.
This is an elegant whiskey filled with apricots, sultanas, caramel and with a creamy texture this single malt will warm you up nicely.
