I checked out the review of this on Whisky Magazine, which I've found
to be a fairly reliable (if not perfect) guide to whiskies.  They rate
Tyrconnell as being really inconsistent from bottle to bottle.

By the way, I discovered an amazing bargain whisky through their
website.  Although I live in Canada, I'm not a big fan of Canadian
whisky, but I tried Forty Creek Barrel Select, which is a single
barrel whisky at a very modest price, because Whisky Magazine gave it
a very postitive review.  I have to admit that I bought the bottle
with some scepticism.  I simply could not believe that I was drinking
a Canadian whisky, as in terms of depth and complexity, it is utterly
unlike any other Canadian I've tried.  If any whisky fans on this list
have access to Forty Creek Barrel Select, I strongly suggest trying it
-- we really are talking about something that can stand in the company
of a bottle of 12 year old The Macallan, at a fraction of the price. 
I suspect once word of this gets around, the price will go up
