Tyrconnell Single Malt
Tyrconnell // Ireland
Tyrconnell was an Irish whiskey brand produced at now defunct Watt Distillery. They named a whiskey after their horse, The Tyrconnell, which subsequently won a race at 100 to 1 odds back in 1876. This whiskey is currently distilled at Cooley Distillery (and soon at the refurbished Kilbeggan Distillery) and is a double distilled single malt whiskey. Most Irish whiskeys on the market are triple distilled and/or blended, but that is trend is slowly changing.

"The aromas and tastes exuding from the glass such as toasted cereal, lemons, and a touch of honey are clean and pronounced. There is a slight charred taste on the finish along with some dried herbs action and it finishes with a gentle spicy bite."
