Hyde
No. 8 Heritage Stout Cask Blended Irish Whiskey

Category: Irish Whiskey

Date Tasted:
Country: Ireland
Alcohol: 43%
Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of dry hay, green apple and pear, caramel, and granola with a satiny, crisp, dry medium body and a tingling, complex, medium-long finish that exhibits nuances of granny smith apple with honey, grain forward and earth, and grassy and unmalted barley. A well made and straight forward Irish Whiskey for sipping, shooting, or mixing.

Irish whiskeys, both blended and malt, are usually triple distilled through both column and pot stills, although there are a few exclusively pot-distilled brands. Irish Pure Pot Still Whiskey is generally labeled as such. Otherwise, Irish whiskeys are a mix of pot and column-distilled whiskeys. Irish Malt Whiskey is likewise so designated. Standard Irish Whiskey is a blend of malt and grain whiskies.
