Connemara Peated uses the traditional Irish custom of drying the malted barley over peat fires with this peated single malt. The smoke rising through the malted barley during this drying process confers the whiskey with a distinct peaty flavour and aroma. These traditional distilling methods combined with natural ingredients and long years in oak casks continue to create a whiskey that is simply exceptional.
Peat level of around 20-25 PPM.
NOSE : Sweetly peaty, smouldering bonfire, violet, hazelnut/pecan pie. Gutsy.
PALATE : Lots of orange peel, dried fruits giving another layer of interest to the slow-burning fire which starts from the middle of the tongue.
FINISH : Little green, suggesting it could improve still further.
COMMENT : There’s real substance here. Well-integrated.
