Connemara

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.

Comment: A wonderful combination of heavy peat and lovely fruitiness with tropical notes. Even though it was matured in ex-sherry casks, it has a bit of a bourbon character as well; probably due to a honey sweetness. The taste is spicy and oily. The aftertaste is long and warm, but dry.
