Tyrconnell 16 Year Oloroso & Moscatel Cask Finish is a single malt release which spends its first 16 years maturing in American oak ex-bourbon barrels. Then the whiskey ages for a time in wine casks from the Andalusian region which initially were seasoned with oloroso sherry before a second seasoning of moscatel wine.

Tasting Notes

"This Irish single malt emerges slowly from the glass with a summer-like blend of fruit, herbs, and flowers. On the palate, its off-to-the-races with loads of dried fruit, powdered sugar, light chili spice and even a salty note to close out the finish. An even hand with the Oloroso & Moscatel cask finishing makes this an exciting whiskey to explore."
