Tyrconnell 16 year old, 46%

Price: $100 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Whiskeys made from 100% Irish barley are not abundant, so at sweet sixteen, there is much to celebrate about this grown-up version of Tyrconnell. Honey, pear, crème brûlée, clementine peel, tinned peach, and pencil shavings on the nose. Citrus, candied peel, lemon, and grapefruit mingle among the sweetness, but it's anchored by layered spices and rounds out with a finish of juicy spiced oranges and peach. Moreish and delicious.
