Tyrconnell 10 Year Port Wood Finish

  • Mar 11, 2010
Rating:
+5
This glorious example of Irish Single Malt is finished in a Port cask after being double distilled and aged for 10 years in American Oak. Tyrconnell Port finish leads with aromas of wild strawberry, currants, tea, elegant tropical fruit and herbs. It is incredibly opulent with exultant malt tones and limpid oak spice to create an irresistible call to relish. The replete and contiguous flavors are copious, seductive and elaborate, beginning with supple ripe fruit ( apricot, Black Currant, straw dried sultanas, mango, fig and strawberry ), moving to candied ginger, baking chocolate, dry-roasted nut, delicate spice and malty malt. The finish lightly modulates through each of the manifold nuances patiently, with finesse and grace leaving only a saporous invocation for another taste. This whiskey is recherché- each sip is a new bliss. Savor this neat or with water and plenty of time to enjoy all of its glory.

i reviewed the original Tyrconell here . . ., this one here . . .,  also the exquisite Madeira finish here . . . and other terrific Irish Whiskey here . . ..
