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'.

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.
