The Tyrconnell, a brand of Beam Suntory launched a new limited-edition Irish whiskey: The Tyrconnell 16 Year Old Oloroso & Moscatel Cask Finish. Packaged in a 750-ml bottle, the Irish whiskey was aged for 16 years in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels before an additional maturation in wine casks from the Andalucia region of Southern Spain, which initially were seasoned with Oloroso sherry before a second seasoning of Moscatel wine, the company says. The result has a distinctive sweetness and roundness of honeysuckle, Champagne and jasmine notes, with a nutty and caramelized taste that precedes a warm and dry finish with hints of grapefruit, it explains. The Tyrconnell 16 Year Old Oloroso & Moscatel Cask Finish is available in select markets for a suggested retail price of $100.
