Tyrconnell Whiskey

   

Tyrconnell Single Malt Irish Whisky

Cooley Distillery, a head in front

Cooley Distillery continues to gallop at full speed, and in the last month of 2010, the distillery celebrated the end of the year with a slew of medals and awards.


It's not just the fiery Irish temperament that characterizes Cooley's products; true horsepower is put into them, and the sprinter is named after a genuine red racehorse, "Tyrconnell."

The very letters propel forward like a whirlwind, and all the energy is bottled up, sprinting over the finish line time and time again. Four gold medals were awarded to the whisky bearing the name "Tyrconnell," namely Tyrconnell Single Malt, Tyrconnell 10 Year Old Sherry Finish, Tyrconnell 15 Year Old Single Cask, and Tyrconnell 10 Year Old Madeira.

The name Tyrconnell is no accident. Just as the racehorse's long fluttering golden tail matched the color of the whisky when it sprinted across the finish line at the Derby back in 1876, the adrenaline and heartbeat that owner and proprietor of Watts Distillery, Andrew A. Watt, must have felt as his favorite horse crossed the finish line time and again as number one, may have been the same he felt when he first tapped a truly unique whisky. The anticipation for the whisky was not unlike that of the horse, where the odds were 100 to 1. They were both to be winners.

Americans put an end to the whiskey Tyrconnell
Americans loved the Irish whiskey Tyrconnell, and the whiskey was definitely Watt's flagship in the new land. Old photos before 1920, where prohibition began, revealed huge advertising posters at Yankee Stadium in New York, showing Tyrconnell whiskey with the derby horse on the label. But nothing in the USA, and certainly not alcohol, lasts forever, as religious movements have disrupted the nation, and the Congress introduced the prohibition of spirits on January 16, 1920. It was simply illegal to purchase, sell, produce, or transport wine and spirits.

Prohibition lasted for 13 years, ending on December 5, 1933, but already in 1925, Andrew Watt from Derry, Northern Ireland, threw in the towel. The lack of exports to the United States killed the otherwise popular Irish whiskey Tyrconnell.

Awakened from the slumbering
The energy of the name Tyrconnell stirred again in 1987. This time it was John Telling who could feel the adrenaline, heartbeat, and excitement hit him like a whirlwind. He simply had to start a distillery. He chose to place it in the green rolling hills near Cooley, about 90 kilometers north of Dublin. Already in 1989, the style was set. The first whiskey was distilled, and the following year, he expanded to also make grain whiskey. This now made it possible to create entirely blended whiskies and single malt whiskey. Tyrconnell whiskey was revived with former determination. A true winner. It is double-distilled and neighs with even more energy and fullness.

    Tyrconnell 10 years old Sherry Finish Single Malt Irish Whiskey 46%

    Aged in American oak for almost ten years, finishing the last months in sherry casks. Master Distiller Noel Sweeney smells for the perfect balance, not drowning in the sherry flavor, but achieving an elegant finish.
    It doesn't get any better than that. The whiskey is bottled at 46% without being cold filtered. This means better preservation of the flavor nuances, but also that the whiskey can become cloudy when water is added.
