  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    I would not call this whisky more like a sweet syrup.

    Almost cardboard in taste on the palate, not that I ever eat cardboard?

  4. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Superfluous and disgusting, nothing else.
    • Nose
      Right nail polish remover, almost only that, in between what vanilla, very deterrent Esther notes, metal, solvents
    • Taste
      Alcohol, ethereal, cheap leather and furniture polish, shoe polish, hint of rotten berries and vanilla
    • Finish
      Toffee, cough syrup, herbs and bitter substances, plus metallic, short to medium-long

  6. holborndrinker scored this whisky 68 points Connoisseur

    Not the best tipple I have ever tried.
    • Nose
      Quite pleasant on the nose with only a slight hint of sharpness.
    • Taste
      Quite a thick taste - unlike most Irish whiskey I have tried. Is the Aras some form of furniture that has been used. Seem to remember a Shakespearean charcaster hiding behind the same.
    • Finish
      Like a cough mixture.

  9. Dramned! scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    I do not want to do this Hyde wrong - maybe Grain Whiksky's just not me. But of the three hyde whiskeys I have found this most unspectacular here. Neither in the nose nor on the palate very complex and demanding, and also remained in the finish barely memorable surprises. He is easy-going, uncomplicated and undemanding, but for the same price, some blends have much more to offer. In mixed drinks certainly well suited, but for pure enjoyment I just miss too much. As a big fan of the previous two Hydes I really expected more here. It will stay in my whiskey cupboard with two Hydes.
    • Nose
      Egg crème, a little vanilla, blossom honey, fresh hay
    • Taste
      dominant sprittiger alcohol, sweet cream, vanilla, eggnog,
    • Finish
      Alcoholic heat literally creeps down the esophagus, some grassy sweetness and vanilla notes are left hanging
