At Hyde they use two different casks to age their Rum cask single malt.
Stage 1: For the First 10 years Hyde single malt is aged in flame-charred, first-fill, 200 litre oak bourbon casks, from the USA.
Stage 2: For an additional 8 months they transfer Hyde into 200 litre charred dark Caribbean rum casks.
The flamed bourbon cask initially adds a sweeter vanilla and caramel flavour, followed by the charred dark rum cask which add a sweet spicy rum character to the final expression.
