Connemara Peated Single Malt Irish Whiskey 

Type: Single malt whiskey 

Origin: Ireland 

ABV: 40%

Malt Mileage rating: stars 2


Nose: Apple, candied lemon peel, honey and soft peat. I keep getting medicated cough lozenges, with menthol and sugary sweetness. 

Taste: Bah! How disappointing. Thin, watery, raw and just plain uninteresting. The whiskey is sweet, with apple and melon candy. As the nose suggests, I also get sweet sugary lemon drops and hints of honey. The taste of peat starts out quite vegetal, and then plumes of smoke form. 

Finish: Smoky, with warming peppery spices.

  1. Oh dear!
    Perhaps the added caramel has influenced the experience?
    The 22yo is caramel free & far more rounded.
    Personally I prefer the Turf Mor Connemara bottling.
    It does what it say on the bottle – more!
