Connemara Peated, 40%

Review #576
This is a peated single malt. Back in the days in Ireland, it was normal to dry the barley with peat fires. These days most whiskies are unpeated. Young fresh peat in the smell. The peat is accompanied by grass and roses. Just a touch of lemongrass in the end with some classic vanilla and honey notes.

The peat is more noticeable in the taste with white fruits coming through. Crisp green apples! It gets very sweet in the finish. The honey mixes with the fresh peat. You are left behind with vanilla and sugary notes.

If you like a young fresh Irish whiskey, dominated by white fruits and sweetness, and you like peat – this could be for you. Something to start a peated night with. And I mean start. It would probably seem weak after a couple of heavy Islay’s. I will give this 80/100 (20/20/20/20).
