I've had the Tyrconnell 10 Port finish in the cabinet for about a year and what better way to warm up this January then by popping open this mystery dram!
Nose: Pears, peaches, a hint of sweet lime and green apples. Lots of sweet berries and fruits.
Palate: Sweet, big punch of fruits then drying out very slowly. Substantial fruity body on this due to the port. Lingering taste of oak and more fruit.
Finish: On the dry side with some sweet oak and residual fruit.
Conclusion: This dram packs a nice wallop of dry, tasty sunny island fruit. Almost tropical in the sense. It's got a decent finish and could easily pass as a speyside malt. Very delicious stuff.
Once this dram is done the whole glass smells like a fruit bowl. Was very surprised with this. Never had a whisky that was this tropical in nature. Recommended!
