Tyrconnell – Single Malt Irish Whiskey (750ml)
On the nose, full and fruity aroma with a citrus – spiciness taste. The taste is well structured, with honey notes hanging from the nose. A tang of oranges and lemons, a strong malt presence that balances well with the oily sweetness. A long finish with the malt becoming more dominant to the end without the soft fruits and honey, which helped make up the middle.
Nice aromas of roasted nuts, nougat, light toffee, candy bar, mild oak and brown sugar. Entry is satiny smooth, honeyed and near lush in texture; the midpalate point brings in spicy notes, in particular, black pepper and clove. The malt component takes charge in the finish, bringing a keen graininess. Superb/Highly Recommended
