Irish Whiskey

The Watt Family of Donegal and Derry in Ireland’s North West owned one of Ireland’s largest whiskey distilleries in the 19th century. When their family owned racehorse Tyrconnell named after an ancient kingdom in that part of Ireland one a major horse race at odds of 100 to 1, the family celebrated the famous victory by creating a whiskey brand in the colt’s honour. This original Tyrconnell Irish Whiskey went on to become one of Irish Whiskey’s greatest export successes, especially in the US where it was the most popular Irish Whiskey on the market in the 1920’s. Prohibition and other factors killed the old Irish Whiskey industry and the old Tyrconnell brand. However, it was one of the first brands to be recreated by Dr. John Teeling when he rebuilt the Cooley Distillery in Ireland some years ago.

Today, Tyrconnell 10 Year Old Single Irish Malt is one of Ireland’s most popular Single Malt whiskeys. This Madeira finished expression is one of Cooley’s Wood Finishes collection and is finished in Madeira casks from Portugal. Madeira is often considered superior to ordinary sherry carrying the depth of port with the sweetness of sherry. Madeira ages extremely well in casks and it is the goodness left in these casks that give Tyrconnell Madeira finish an extra rich quality and character

Tyrconnell Single Malt Madeira Tasting Notes

  • Nose: Quite a light and fragrant nose with rich fruit overtones.
  • Taste: The Madeira adds a rich influence to the already smooth and creamy malt.
  • Finish: A rich and luxurious finish from the Madeira.

Stuart Says

The Madeira influence adds a rich and sweet spiciness to the standard 10 Year Old Single Malt lending added character and flavour from the superior Madeira Sherry casks from Portugal. Madeira tends to leave more behind than other sherries do in the cask wood. And the wonderful thing is that the Madeira sherry gains from the loss to the wood and the whiskey gains by taking the Madeira magic from the wood. It’s win win!

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.
