Type: Single malt whiskey
Malt Mileage rating:
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.
One thought on “Connemara Peated Single Malt Irish Whiskey”
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!
