Connemara Original

Connemara is one of the few peated Irish single malts. The taste reminds of the Scottish Islay malts but has its own, very fruity character.

Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

09. May 2018
Irish whiskey and peat - do these two go together? Connemara's peatiness has its own style, which is distinctly different from Islay's peat bombs: it is more herbal, restrained and well-integrated. Light and floral on the nose, there is a mix of heather honey, citrus and whiffs of smoke. On the palate, the clean and peppery arrival is followed by an aromatic kick of lemon zest, bitter tea and hints of salt. The peat smoke returns in the aftertaste, lingering on the tongue. Although a bit uneventful and simple, this malt offers a nice variation from the 'Irish theme'.
