Irish Whiskey

Tyrconnell Irish Whiskey was one of the most successful Irish whiskey exports when it was first produced over 100 years ago in Derry in the North West of Ireland. Tyrconnell was produced by Watts distillery in Derry and the Watts also owned a famous racehorse called Tyrconnell after the ancient kingdom of Tir Connall in the North West of Ireland. When the colt won a major Irish race against odds of 100 to 1 the distillery commemorated the famous occasion by creating a special Tyrconnell whiskey brand in the horses honour. in the early 1900’s, Tyrconnell became of of the most successful Irish whiskey exports ever and was extremely popular in the USA until prohibition killed off the brand and the Irish Whiskey sector in the 1920’s

Many years later when the Cooley whiskey distillery was relaunched by Dr. John Teeling, he also resurrected many famous old Irish whiskey brands including Tyrconnell as a 10 Year Old Double Distilled Single Malt. Once again Tyrconnell is a leading Irish Single Malt with a popular following at home and abroad.

As well as a basic 10 year old single malt, Tyrconnell is also available i 10 Year old Special Wood Finish expressions including Sherry, Madeira and Port Pipes. I’ve saved the best for last! This Port Pipe finish ads real depth, colour and character to the single malt and also successfully tames the double distilled malt. To some it may be a slightly acquired taste but trust me, persevere and you will come to love this expression as an easy drinking whiskey of real style and substance.

Tyrconnell Port Finish Whiskey Tasting Notes

  • Nose: A more pronounced nose than it’s lighter siblings.
  • Taste: Real depth of character here with the port and malt combining to make quite a full and luscious mouth feel.
  • Finish: quite a long and luxuriant slightly dry finish with port very much in evidence .

Stuart Says

I may not be a personal fan of Tyrconnell’s 10 Year Old Single Malt per-se as I personally find it all a bit light for my taste. The port addresses all this by adding a nice complexity and richness to the flavour and finish. It manages to tame the double distilled malt without over powering it and the port influence is quite finely balanced right down to the slightly dry finish.
