Released in March 2018, this limited edition single malt bottling was aged for 15 years in American oak ex-bourbon barrels. It then finished its maturation in former Madeira wine casks, a fortified wine produced off the coast of Portugal on the Madeira Islands. This single malt is double-distilled rather than triple-distilled as is more traditional in Irish whiskey production. Bottled at 46% ABV, it will be released in select US markets as well as Belgium, Ireland, Denmark, Germany and Global Travel Retail.

Tasting Notes

"This is a beautiful whiskey from Tyrconnell, with its long time in wood and unique finish giving it complex layers of flavor. With ripe pear and vanilla up front, it gradually unfolds into notes of floral nectar, orange peel, and the elegant, sweet fruitiness of a Tokaji or Sauternes dessert wine. Pour this one neat and enjoy."
