  • Intro:

    This is a blended Irish whiskey that contains 18 year old single malt and 8 year old single grain whiskey that has been finished in a sherry cask. The 1938 is important, as it signifies the year that Hyde became President in Ireland.

  • Nose:

    Ethanol, vanilla cream, soft buttered rolls. Lots of caramel, toffee and sweet icing. Overall, it can be summed up as ethanol and every sweet dessert under the sun.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouth feel. Some mild heat. Lots of honey, caramel, sweet cream. Mild pepper, faint orange peel. Very sweet and vanilla bean forward. Not super complex, but enjoyable.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium in length. No heat. Lots of vanilla cream, honey, caramel candies and a sweet, bread-y note.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this isn't super complex but its enjoyable. Thin, but packed with lots of bread-y, vanilla forward sweetness.

  • Score:

    5
