Reviews for Hyde 6 Year Old No.5 The Áras Cask
Hyde no.5
Disappointed… The bottle looks great but that’s about as far as it goes. The nose isn’t terrible, typical notes you’d expect from Irish whiskey. The problem is the palate and finish, the ethanol is way too high, the wine influence only adds a bitterness to the finish. I think a few more years in the cask would bring this up to par.

Pleasant to the taste and easy to drink.
I thought it had somewhat similar characteristics as Tillamore Dew. Appearance, aroma and taste.

more like grape Eaux de vie
Obvious red wine/grapey cask influence here with red cherry, hedgerow berries and some fruity liquorice but overall a tad on the raw and youthful side and a bit like the jammy bit in those jars of Goober (peanut butter and jam spread)

Exceeded expectations
Can't stop nosing this one. Unlike the notes above I get ample notes of red grape, cut Rose's, raw honey and nail polish remover. On the palate heavy vanilla, white grapes, nectarines and dried apricots.
