Tyrconnell 10 Year Madeira Finish
This Tyrconnell is a limited release, Irish Single Malt finished in Madeira . . . This wonderful whiskey emits fascinating aromas of gala Apple and halva with ginger. The full and immediate flavors are rich, vigorous and dry, ranging from stewed dried apricot, papaya, date, apple, berry and blood orange to candied ginger, dark chocolate, treacle, roasted almonds and hints of leather and flowers. The finish softly transitions from fruit to spice while showing a dark wood richness. This is exquisite whiskey- a treasure to be savored neat or with a drop of water and the time to enjoy it thoroughly. Tyrconnell has just released a total of three 'limited edition' wood finishes, and they are each completely fantastic-- do try them all.
