Cooley Distillery revived the historic brand of Tyrconnell in 1988, so let's give this classic Irish Single Malt a try! Simple presentation, no age statement - but at least it's affordable. The nose is clean and a bit anemic with green apple, citrus fruits and a touch of aniseed. Not as 'green' as I expected. On the palate, you get fresh and fruity notes, porridge and sweet hints of melon. Oddly enough, I detected distant bonfire smoke. Without any obvious cask influence, the finish is malty, sugary and slightly dry. An easy, understated and rather uneventful whiskey.
