A lovely Irish Single Malt aged for six years in ex-Bourbon casks and finished in Caribbean Rum barrels.

Hibernia Distillers is fairly new, being founded in 2014 by brothers Conor and Alan Hyde in the wee town of Skibbereen, Ireland. But in a few short years this small-town maker of traditional Single Malt and Single Grain Irish Whiskey is rocking the world with products available in fifteen countries and an early, hard-won reputation for creating a line of seven amazing, aromatic, award-winning examples of liquid Irish pride.

Hyde No.4 6 YO Rum Finish has just about all the information you need right there in the name. A part of the core President’s Cask line up, it is a pure Single Malt Irish Whiskey aged fro six years in ex-Bourbon casks and finished in ex-Rum casks sourced from the Caribbean. This gem is bottled at a perfect 46% ABV without chill-filtration (as it should be). The result is a malty, pure Irish experience with the influence of exotic fruits and Tropical spices.

Smartass Corner:
Douglas Hyde was the first President of Ireland, serving from 1938 through 1945 and a relative of the founders of Hyde Whiskey. The Hyde President’s Cask line of Irish Whiskeys is named after him.

Audrey,
Undrinkable. Got it in a taster box. Tried to get past the mustiness to taste what might be drinkable. Nope. We both hated it.
 
Shane
Shane,
What can I say... I do like a good rum cask finish whisky but not this this whiskey. It shows promise but it needs more age or something. I just cant get down with the flavor profile. Also the nose was immediately unpleasant to me at least. Sorry Hyde 6yo.. #notforme

Unusual nose and taste. Not a drain pour but I would not do again.
 
Brian
Brian,
This is a really nice, smooth whiskey, start to finish. Need to find me a bottle! Will definitely look for it next trip to Ireland.
 
Steven
Steven,
The spice notes translate to smokiness. This is less smooth than other Irish whiskeys.

Steven
Steven,
I can taste the biscuit and toffee notes. This has a smooth, creamy finish. I’ve had a few other Hyde whiskeys before. My favorite is 6-year No.3, but this bottle is very good. This came in the Irish tasting box. This wouldn’t be my first choice when spending $70+ on a bottle, but so far, this Irish tasting box has been very good.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, intense, Single Malt Irish Whiskey that has an aromatic birth; while an elegant life leads to a woody death of medium length with notes of cinnamon, figs, coriander & fresh-baked bread.

Robert,
This was ok, the flavors did not exactly jump out. It was not bad but there is better out there.
