Tyrconnell 15 Year Old Single Cask

Nose: A summery bowl of strawberry and mint, seasoned with fresh vanilla and enjoyed while sitting on a damp summer lawn. This summer treat is accompanied by melons and grapefruits, resting on a cereal bed of oatmeal and cashews, now savoured as the light breeze blows in the sweet aroma from the surrounding flower-beds.

Taste: Beautifully integrated and smooth sunshine, warmly embracing a citrus pool of vanilla, in which we find apples and melons floating abundantly, along with almonds, malt and cocoa. The breeze now blows in a refreshing herbal spice that helps keeps the palate light on its feet in the summer haze.

Finish: A seamless and far-stretching blue sky, with flocks of vanilla and pepper elegantly soaring across it, coming in to land on meadows of oatmeal, almond and cocoa. The breeze continues to carry in the herbal spice, as well as the floral note from the nose, before we round off the day with a luscious fruit bowl of melon and grapefruit.

Balance: Like a perfect summer afternoon, there is a lightness and warmth to this almost faultless dram. The smooth elegance and sophisticated simplicity with which it delivers its palate is truly a pleasure to savour. One could be fooled into thinking this was an aged Lowlander, much in the Lochside mould. The only negative, or rather constructive comment I could give it, would be that it is so well integrated and contained, that it feels like it could release its valves a bit further and still be effortlessly smooth, much like a Rolls-Royce in 2nd gear. What I would give to try this Cooley masterpiece at cask strength...

Are the single casks numbered?

Hi @Victor, yes they are, this particular bottle is from Cask No. 5284/92.


Under the Tyrconnell label (named after a horse that won a famous race against all odds), Cooley brings us several expressions. Aside from their single malt, they also have three wood finished (madeira, port and sherry). Today we'll try the 15 Year Old Single Cask.

Wonderful nose! A whole pie of fruits with vanilla custard at the base. Banana, apple, pear, berry, plum... even a touch of kiwi, coconot and mint. Give this one some time to develop, because it keeps getting better.

Quite oily on the palate and mouthcoating. It's the spices that appear first, immediately followed by a whole range of fruits. Licquorice, apricots, kiwi. Reminds me a little of Austrian schnapps too. This is an exotic fruit bomb. Magnificent.

The finish is spicy and wonderfully long. Damn, a lot of people say Irish whiskey is for beginners because of it's simplicity, accessability and softness. This Irish animal is anything but simple. Quite complex in fact. Very good.

If I can get my hands on it, sure. For now, I've only tried the wood finishes, the Madeira being my fav (check it out at connosr.com/reviews/tyrconnell/…).

Yeah that sound nice too. Based on your scores this one seems like a big step up though?
