This Tyrconnell Madeira Finish, which will set you back about 60 EUR, is a so-called 'limited release', but easily obtainable in Europe, so I'm quite sure that is just another marketing technique.
This Irish whiskey first matured for 10 years on American oak and was then transferred to Spanish Madeira casks for the finish of several months.
The nose is a very pleasurable one with an abundance of marzipan, forrest fruits, frangipane, oranges, honey, barley and wood. Very exotic, thank you very much.
Those fruits are more pronounced on the palate, adding flavours of papaya, raisins, apricots, pineapple and even some mango. Hell, there is even some chocolat and a whiff of spices. I feel like I'm on a South American beach or something! Rather dry, but well balanced.
The finish is long and warm. In the end, the fruit gets overpowered by the spices, though.
Deze whiskey has two brothers: the Sherry Finish and the Port Finish. I have not yet tried those, but heard some good things about them.
