Top reviews for Hyde 6 Year Old No.3 The Áras Cask:

— Smooth, great after dinner drink

— One of my favorites from the advent box. I think this would be a great entry level whiskey for someone. Very creamy with a caramel and vanilla and then getting a bit of pepper and spice. I also get a chocolate/coffee flavor that is very nice. Finish lingers and feels very creamy with oak and vanilla.

Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, complex, Irish Whiskey that has a bold & aromatic birth; while a rich & spicy life leads to a short & delicate death with notes of caramel, ginger, barley & pepper.

Andrew,
Nougat! Interesting.

Wow. Terrible. Tastes like a bad gin
 
Matthew
Matthew,
blow out the candle on this vanilla cake
 
Todd
Todd,
Alcohol on the nose and palate. Not much else. A little water helped, but not much.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
And interesting flavor. The profile lists nougat as the primary taste, which I have never had in a drink before. Its definitely noticeable, almost more a desert drink than a pre-dinner sipper.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Color is amber. Nose starts with a ethanol. Little hints of sweetness pop through, but ethanol definitely dominates. First sip is the slightest bit of vanilla, a whole lot of bland, and an ethanol afterburn. Further sips don't give much more. Dumped the rest in my wife's eggnog. Incredibly disappointing. I've had moonshine with more flavor.

Stefanie,
At first smelled chemical...then sweet from the caramel and vanilla..tastes the way it smells with a spicy kick at the back of the throat and that grain alcohol aftertaste..no thanks

Zachary,
Smooth but not much flavor. Pretty unopinionated
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Mellow nose and taste. The caramel and vanilla come through right away and are very well balanced. This whiskey was certainly enjoyable to drink, tasting like an up-scale average Irish whiskey, albeit without any unique qualities.
 
Burton
Burton,
I would have sworn this was a Canadian whisky, namely Canadian Club. It is easy drinking, vanilla inspired, light drinker. Pleasant, but not a show stopper.
