This Tyrconnell was then bottled at 46% ABV, after it was aged for 16 years in ex-American oak bourbon barrels in a 200-year-old granite warehouse. Launched in March 2017 is this limited-edition single malt Irish whiskey.
Nose: Tinned pineapple rings, fleshy melon and banana cream pie soothes bold baking spices, with flashes of vanilla and coconut in the backdrop.
Palate: Oily and smooth, a tropical fruit fiesta leads the way, with dollops of fresh cream and a very slight oaky bitterness tempering beautifully.
Finish: Almost too long, the richness of the spice sees off the fruit and concludes a strong dram.
