Connemara Irish Whiskey. Connemara is Ireland’s first modern-day peated single malt whiskey. It is made by one of Ireland’s independent distilleries: Cooley. The Cooley distillery was founded in the late 1980s to challenge the monopoly that Irish Distillers (owners of Midleton and, at the time, Bushmills) had created.
A unique peated whiskey experience. Very drinkable, even quaff-able, with sweetness, and an interesting summer weeds type of presence. And plenty of peat, but don’t expect a peat beast; this is driving-through-the-country window-seat-peat.
Connemara is a blend of aged whiskies: a 4 year, a 6 year, and an 8 year. Company representatives state that the 4-year-old gives the whiskey a level of vibrancy, while the 8-year-old adds depth to the whiskey and the 6-year-old is needed to marry them together.
Nose: Well-smoked and peated, heather freshness and floral notes with a honeyed sweetness and a little wood.
Palate: Full and smooth with notes of malt and peat, honeyed smoke and barley sweetness.
Finish: Long and pungent with honey and peat smoke.
Feedback (from customers that have bought Connemara)
- Sometimes you really fancy a Whiskey with a bit of extra punch. On a Summers day I would be happy to drink a light, floral or fruity Whiskey. As a standard, there are a plethora of really good drinking whiskies, but the light, subtle, smokiness of Connemara is just about perfect! There is a time and a place for all Whiskies, and this is perfect for the end of the day.
- Beautiful and perhaps the best on the market. Full of flavour, soft and smooth with smoky influence and a great nose. The very best.
- Enough smoke to keep it interesting, smooth & sweet, peaty & fruity, normally a scotch drinker but pleasantly surprised by this whiskey, keep a bottle now for the good times (and bad!!!)
