The Tyrconnell Port Cask Single Malt Irish Whiskey

(10 customer reviews)


After a decade resting in bourbon barrels, the Tyrconnell Port Cask Finish is transitioned into port wine casks from the Duoro Valley in Portugal for an additional 6–8 months of aging. Bottled at 92 proof, the additional time spent in hand-selected port casks gives this single malt whiskey a nose that evokes baked apples and notes of roots. A warm sweetness recedes, allowing a finish characterized by a multitude of spices to move to the forefront.


Information about The Tyrconnell 10 Year Old Single Malt Whiskey with Port Cask Finish

The Tyrconnell Single Malt Irish Whiskey is made using the finest Irish barley, which is steeped in pure spring water and allowed to germinate. Unlike many Scottish distilleries, Cooley Distillery does not use any smoke during the malting process, resulting in a cleaner taste of malt and barley. After the barley is malted and mashed, yeast is added to the wort in order to begin fermentation. The wash is then distilled through the distillery’s copper pot stills; the stills’ small size and long necks result in more contact between the whiskey and copper and ultimately produce a more refined and layered spirit. Following distillation, the whiskey is matured for a decade in seasoned oak casks, which are stored in a 200-year-old granite warehouse. The seasoned casks impart notes of vanilla and caramel to the whiskey and add a hint of cinnamon.

The Tyrconnell Single Malt Port Cask Finish Whiskey is double barreled, or finished, in used port casks after its slumber in the oak, where it sleeps for an additional six to eight months. The whiskey gains richness from the port barrels, which also give it notes of cherries, stone fruits, and dark chocolate. In 2011, the Tyrconnell Single Malt Irish Whiskey Port Cask Finish won the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and received 92 points from Whisky Advocate.

    This has butter and brown sugar on the front with nutmeg and ginger on a lasting finish. I’m looking for another one.

    Before this, the only Irish Whiskeys I’ve tried were Jameson, and Bushmills 10 year Malt. Having enjoyed the Bushmills Single Malt, I got this without reading reviews. It’s been one hell of a pleasant surprise.

    Nose: Fresh cut apple slices floating atop a creamy honey oat cereal, with a dash of vanilla.

    Palate: instead of the burst of apple I was expecting, it’s milder, with a more pronounced honey and vanilla sweetness, that’s almost like frosted honey oat cereal sweet, without being too sugary. Follows up with with a very slight pepper spice. Absolutely no ethanol flavours to be found.
