As a double distilled single malt, The Tyrconnell occupies a small territory of Ireland’s whiskey category. Originally produced by the Watt family, The Tryconnell was inspired and subsequently named after the 1876 chestnut colt that against all odds (literally 100 to 1 odds) won Irelands ‘The National Produce Stakes’ race. Only the finest Irish barley is sourced and malted before being twice distilled in traditional copper pot stills. After spending a decade resting in ex-Bourbon barrels, this Tyrconnell expression is transferred into ex-port wine casks from the Duoro Valley to be finished for an additional 6-8 months before being bottled at 46% abv.

Appearance: Deep amber.
Nose: Baking spices and berries.
Taste: Rich toffee, candied orange peel and cinnamon.
Finish: Warming spices, raisins and hints of almond.
Overall: A thick, mouth-coating Irish malt.


Like the classic Tyrconnell, this malt will be widely appreciated by Scotch malt drinkers. The use of casks of finishing a whiskey in Ireland is a bit of a rarity in itself, making The Tyrconnell Port Finish all the more unique and collectable.

Irish whiskey was once the most popular spirit in the world and has been massively on the rise in popularity in recent years. Ireland and Scotland both lay claim to being whisky’s original creator but it’s likely both nations developed a similar product at around the same time. The knowledge of distillation is commonly thought to have been brought to Ireland (and Scotland) by monks returning from the Mediterranean and the Middle East in around 1000AD.

Cooley Distillery , Kilbeggan Distillery.

Cooley was converted from a potato alcohol plant in 1987 by John Teeling, father of the Jack and Stephen Teeling. Up until this point Irish Distillers had controlled all of the Irish whiskey output in Ireland. Not only historically significant, Cooley has been responsible for supplying much of the third party whiskey for new brands entering the burgeoning Irish whiskey market. John Teeling began double, rather than triple, distilling the whiskey at Cooley, providing a style more in line with Scottish malt production. Bought by Suntory Holdings in 2014, Cooley continues to have a big influence on the Irish whiskey sector, not least because Jack and Stephen have gone on to form Teeling Whiskey distillery in Dublin, John has also formed Great Northern Distillery in Dundalk.
