Clontarf Single Malt Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Jim Murray

    Nose: Sharp, grassy maltiness and a touch salty. Full of character.

    Taste: Ultra malty start, rich textured and mouthwateringly in the Clontarf style.

    Finish: Varying shades of malt, then a late oaky complexity.

    Comments: A deceptively distinguished malt that offers more complexity than first meets the eye.

    You can do well at this price in Irish whiskey, but they have recently sneaked in a couple of stinkers we won't mention. Clontarf is head and shoulders above the fray and for the money it is in my top five whiskey values. As pleasant a surprise as Elijah Craig 12 is to bourbon. Give it a go. Putting my finger on it I get hazelnut after a clean nose. Understated vanilla lingers through the finish. Can't lose.

    This is an excellent single malt for the cost and fares better without ice

    I bought this fine single malt because of the price and the fact it came recommended. I was going to use it for mixing with ginger ale. After sampling it, I have decided it is now my Irish Whiskey for sipping as well. Luckily, there is a source where I live who currently have a nice supply so I will purchase as much as I can and be happy for a long time!! Joe W. March 18th, 2012

    At first sniff, it smells sweet. This is before the first taste which is like liquid liquorice. At second taste, I get chocolate. Not at all harsh, no burn but a smooth caramel sweetness that makes you smile with pleasure as it slips down. Be selfish with this single malt, be very selfish indeed.

    I can find nothing wrong with the single malt except it isn't available ANYWHERE in the US. I even called the distributor who told me it is no longer being imported. Total bummer!

    A bit too easy on the palate; the bottle hasn't lasted very long at all. I write this review as I order my next bottle.

    I tried a bottle of Clontarf with high expectations, but was disappointed. It is smooth and, a touch creamy and there is a little smoke, but it seems unbalanced. The various elements of flavor clash and disappear quickly with virtually no finish.

    Very smooth indeed! I believe this dram has been neglected for a very long time and is underappreciated. I enjoyed it thouroughly!
