In the Northwest of Ireland lies an ancient Gaelic kingdom called Tyrconnell. Tyrconnell when translated from Gaelic means "Land of O'Donnell". The O'Donnell's were, prior to colonisation, one of the most powerful Gaelic noble families. The territory is famous for its distilling tradition. One of the oldest distilleries in the region, established 1762, was Andrew A. Watt. The Watt's flagship brand was the world famous "The Tyrconnell" single malt pure pot still Irish Whiskey. In 1876 the Watt family entered a horse, appropriately named "The Tyrconnell" in the Irish classic, "The Queen Victoria Plate" horse race. Incredibly it won at 100 to 1. The event went into racing folklore and the company celebrated the occasion with a special commemorative label. The Tyrconnell single malt pure pot still Irish whiskey has a fresh malty bouquet, smooth taste and a delicate dry finish. Tasting notes by Jim Murray, renowned Whiskey Commentator Nose: A beguiling cross between citrus-spiciness and honey-lightness with a hint of Oak. Taste: Fills the mouth with a well-structured viscosity. A tang of oranges is also noticeable. The malt balances well with the oily sweetness. Finish: Long with the malt becoming quite dominant without the soft fruits and honey which helps to make up the middle. Awards Award winning whiskey at the International Wine and Spirits Competition over the years: Silver (1995, 2001), Bronze (1996, 1997, 1999).
