The Tyrconnell 16yr Olorosso & Moscatel Cask Finish Irish Whiskey, Derry, Ireland (750ml)
The Tyrconnell is double distilled, unlike the majority of Irish Whiksy's that are triple distilled. Their most recent foray into cask ageing is this sku, a 16-year-old single malt finished in Oloroso and Moscatel casks. The whiskey was matured for 16 years in ex-bourbon barrels before spending an undisclosed amount of time in wine casks from the Andalucía region of Spain. These casks were double seasoned, first with Oloroso sherry and then with Moscatel wine. The resulting whiskey is bright and vibrant, with floral, vanilla, raisin, and unsweetened dark chocolate notes on the palate.
