Peated Single Malt 12 Year Old

Irish Whiskey

Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Single Malt is an expression of unique Irish Whiskey that is Connemara from the Cooley distillery. Connemara Single Malt is unusual for an Irish Whiskey in that it is only distilled twice and is made for 100% malt which has been dried in the kiln by turf smoke. Although made in a similar fashion to Scottish Single Malt, Connemara is different in that it all about the land rather than the sea in taste and flavour.

The emphahsis in Connemara whiskey is all about the turf with strong and earthy peat overtones but no trace at all of the iodine smell of the sea that one would associate with say an Islay Single Malt whisky from Scotland.

This 12 year old expression has been matured in old bourbon casks from Kentuck and the effect of the extra years is to tone down the peatiness making it a very smooth and pleasant slightly smokey single malt whiskey.

Connemara Peated Single Malt 12 Year Old Tasting Notes

  • Nose: Quite a light smokey peat nose .
  • Taste: Quite smooth with some citrus and ginger notes and not as pronounced a peat flavour as it’s younger cousin.
  • Finish: A gentle medium finish with a hint of peat.

Stuart Says

This 12 Year Old expression is Connemara Single Malt for Grown Ups. The extra years have toned down the peat influence and have enhanced the malt. I actually prefer to drink this one without any water.

This is a lovely drink for those quiet reflective hours beside the fire. Just enough unusual flavour and character to make it a special experience, but not so peaty to distract your mind. Ideal for drinking while reading or studying beside a nice open fire.
