Tasting Notes

The wine cask finished single malts of Tyrconnell have been some of the most sought after premium Irish whiskies of the past decade. Not only do these comprise some of the older Irish malts available but the use of wine casks is still rare on the island as is double distillation which all add up to a bigger more full flavored style of whiskey. The whiskey shows an impressive level of complexity right out of the gate with notes of grilled yellow peaches, mulberries and dried mango that mingle with secondary notes of fresh almonds, orange marmalade and fresh herbs. On the palate the whiskey is more savory and dry with notes of vanilla bean, white pepper, cocoa powder, underbrush and a finish of cinnamon dusted coffee. A very well rounded whiskey. Available in limited quantities.

Staff Pick Notes

There's something to said for hedonism, I think. That's what I feel, drinking this whiskey. Orange marmalade. Heaping sherry cobbler. Walnut maple pie in a gingerbread crust. Warm spice, dried citrus, and a richly textured, oily palate. Tyrconnell makes single malt exclusively and uses double distillation rather than triple, rare among distillers in Ireland. It all contributes to a fuller, more intense style. I've never had a Madeira-aged dram that didn't taste wonderful, but in Irish whiskey Tyrconnell is about all I've seen playing around with it. And it is a beauty.
