The Tyrconnell Irish Whiskey was originally produced by the Watt Distillery in the late 18th century, from 100% malted barley in traditional copper pot stills. This whiskey was inspired after a legendary horse who won, against all odds, the iconic National Produce Stakes in 1876.
Tyrconnell 16 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey is created from 100% Irish barley and pure spring water. It is double distilled in traditional pot stills and aged in American oak ex-bourbon barrels in the mild Irish climate. The resulting spirit offers a fruit forward nose with notes of green fruit, melon, coconut and vanilla. The full-bodied palate offers a viscous mouthfeel with additional aromas of candied pear, almond and ginger. Subtle notes of fresh spice lingers through the long finish.
"This new single malt, debuting in March 2017, has a fresh, grassy scent, a drying feel and plenty of bold flavor. Think rounded almond, subtle vanilla sweetness and coconut cream pie, finishing with a burst of citrus- and ginger-peel zing." - Wine Enthusiast
