Tyrconnell Sherry Finish
When the racehorse owned by the Watts one a major race in 1880 at odds of 100 to 1, the Watts family decided to create a new whiskey brand in the colt’s honour.
In the 1990’s, when Dr. John Teeling relaunched the Cooley distillery, the Tyrconnell brand was one of several old Irish Whiskey labels that he brought back to life.
Today, Tyrconnell is one of the most successful Irish Single Malts and is available as a normal 10 year old Single Malt as well as several special wood finished expressions incuding Sherry cask, Madeira Cask and Port Finish.
Tyrconnell Sherry Finish Whiskey Tasting Notes
- Nose:A delicate nose but the fruit and wood from the Sherry Casks dominate.
- Taste: Spicy malt is to the fore but with a sweet fruity overtone from the sherry.
- Finish: A medium finish with lingering sherry and oak.
Many other Irish Whiskey expressions now have sherry finished versions but Cooley’s 10 Year Old Single Malt was one of the first. This is creamy malt with sherry sweetness making it a very mellow whiskey indeed.
Not my absolute favourite of the Tyrconnell 10 Year Old Single Malt wood finishes, as the sherry influence can never really compete against the double distilled malt. But then I am a Yellow Spot fan!.

Tyrconnell 10 Year Old / Sherry Finish Irish Single Malt Whiskey
Many other Irish Whiskey expressions now have sherry finished versions but Cooley’s 10 Year Old Single Malt was one of the first. This is creamy malt with sherry sweetness making it a very mellow whiskey indeed.I’d suggest that this should be your second of the 10 year old Tyrconnells to taste after the plain single malt and before the Madeira finished single malt.

This may just be the most popular Single Malt Irish Whiskey from the Cooley Distillery. Try it before trying the Special Wood expressions variants in Sherry and Madeira Casks and Port Pipe finishes.
Tyrconnell 10 Year Old / Port Finish Irish Single Malt Whiskey
If I had one criticism of Cooley’s standard 10 Year Old Single Malt it would be that it can be light in character. This Port finish adds great depth and character marking it as the best of the Cooley wood finishes.
Tyrconnell 10 Year Old / Madeira Finish Irish Single Malt Whiskey
The Madeira sherry influence adds a mellow and sweet spiciness to the standard 10 Year Old Single Malt lending added character and flavour from the superior Madeira Sherry casks from Portugal.
