Thought peat was all about Islay? Think (or perhaps that should be 'drink') again. All Islay fans owe it to themselves to check out Connemara from the splendid Cooley distillery.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Simon Difford for Class Magazine

    • Appearance

      Clear, mid golden amber with polished golden glints.

    • Aroma

      Sweet barley (touch of barley water) with wafts of peaty smoke, kippers and well baked apple crumble.

    • Taste

      Lightly honey sweet, subdued clean rather than sooty smoke with peaty vegetal notes, sweet barley water, light spice and vanilla oak.

    • Aftertaste

      Lingering smoke, spicy oak and sweet almonds.

  • Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky

    • Honey and lemon, green grapes, skin cream/lotion. Very fresh on the nose. The peat is in there, but it is all so perfumed, estery, and free of the associations that often appear with peat smoke that it could go unnoticed. Apple crumble, margarine, and a touch of animal hide.

      Okay, well the smoke will not go unnoticed on the palate, but it is so clean, and surrounded by floral sweetness, that to compare it to a Scottish whisky would not quite be fair (to either). Peated barley at the heart of the flavours, grassy, and increasingly drying. Oak and almonds.

      SUMMARY:

      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.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Colour

      Lightly golden.

    • Nose

      Smokey peatiness balanced by heather floralness with hints of honey and oak.

    • Taste

      Silky smooth with a honey sweet start, followed by more complex aromas of malt and fruit giving way to the intensifying full bodied peat. A well-balanced yet complex taste with vanilla oak notes.

    • Finish

      A long and glorious finish with golden honey notes and deep peat spreading across the mouth and palate. Hints of chocolate vanilla and oak leave a mouth-watering taste!.

    • Serving Suggestions

      Connemara can be enjoyed neat or with a little water to release the bouquet.

    A very smooth and flavoursom drink. The peat comes through nicely and never in a harsh way.

    The Chair

    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.

    Awful - I’d leave smoked whisky to the Scottish. Taste - old ash tray from a 1980s working mans club. Aroma - 12th July morning bonfire in Northern Ireland.
