Whiskey or Whisky
Interesting fact… Tyrconnell Irish Whiskey spells its name whiskey as it originates in Ireland. Had it been produced in Scotland its name would be Tyrconnell Irish Whisky, instead of whiskey.

A single malt Irish whiskey from the Cooley distillery, Tyrconnell is incredibly creamy and smooth.

The nose is sweet and crisp with orchard fruits and a malty character. Oaked dryness and an oily note. The palate is full and sweet with barley malt and hot buttered granary toast with honey. The finish is dry and grassy with a little spice.
MR IAN SANDERSON BARNSLEY
AFTER BEING A LIFE LONG FAN OF SCOTTISH SINGLE MALTS I DICOVERED THE MAGIC OF THE IRISH SINGLE MALTS PRIMARILY AFTER BUYING MY FIRST BOTTLE IN THE FORM OF TYRCONNELL AND WHAT A PLEASANT SUPPRISE IT WAS .ALTHOUGH I HAVE FOUND IT HARD TO COME BY LOCALLY IT IS WELL WORTH THE TRIP TO PURCHASE IT , ONE WHICH I HAVE MADE ON SEVERAL OCCCASIONS AS OPPOSED TO BUYING ON LINE AS I PREFER BROWSING IN CASE THERE ARE ANY NEW PRODUCTS .
I was impressed. Smooth. Light. Honey...and oh, so smooth.
Sort of drops off at the finish but, then comes back with a sweetness.
damn fine whiskey.♦
Dudes and Dames of the Drinking world, I regularly splurge on high-end scotch, whiskey, rye, tequila, etc. You would have to pay nearly twice this much to get this good a bottle of dram. This compares in flavor and quality to a Johnny Walker Gold Label or a Bushmills Red Label 16 year, each at least double in price of the Tyrconnell. There was one more bottle on the shelf at my local liquor store, and I'm headed back tomorrow to buy it before someone else does.
All reviews so far (not just on this site) miss the coconut taste I get clear in the middle. This is not a lightweight, it is a really good dram, and really worth a tasting.
Is based on Price. Having said that, at any price you'd be hard-pressed to find a better dram of whiskey, from any country, single malt or blended. Sweet, fruity and smooth, nice gentle accents of rich oak. Surprisingly satisfying creamy, coconut finish. If you want to try another exceptional Tyrconnell, they have special cask finishes of Madeira, Sherry and Port as well that are about twice this price, yet still worth every penny (especially the Madeira IMO).
In taste, I found this similar to a basic Speyside whisky. Nothing in it is objectionable, yet it's more interesting than the Bushmills 10 I tried a few days ago. I'd be happy to have a bottle on my shelf at home.
