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

The Cooley Distillery has bucked trends since its unlikely inception by risk-taking entrepreneur John Teeling in 1986. Ardent in his belief that Irish whiskey need not be constrained by prevailing orthodoxy, Teeling promoted single malt expressions, double distillation and even hired Gordon Mitchell, a Scot, as his first master distiller. Over the last decade, the distillery has rolled out a series of increasingly impressive cask finishes. This 15-year Madeira-finish is their finest to date and one of the most satisfying drams I’ve nursed in a long time. Chocolate praline pie, wild mint, peach cobbler, dried orange peel, a rich, oily texture and an exquisitely long finish.
