Connemara is a wild, mountainous region on the west coast of Ireland, lying between the Atlantic Ocean and Loughs Corrib and Mask. The majestic mountains, lakes, streams, glens and rain soaked peat bogs create a landscape of unique natural beauty. The peat bogs of Connemara are major fuel sources to the region and have played an important role throughout Irish history in the evolution of energy and as an employment source. Connemara Peated Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a tribute to this region. Its complex characters and peaty taste revive a tradition that in recent years has been forgotten by Irish distillers throughout the country. A forgotten tradition recaptured by Cooley Distillery with Connemara Peated Single Malt.
Pale straw in appearance. Muted and mildly fruity aroma includes attractive grape / cantaloupe / pear notes followed by hints of dried grass, grains and vanilla. The flavours seem to float over the palate, such is the initial sensation of lightness, as the fresh, pristine, delicate profile repeats the subtle fruitiness. Mid palate builds to moderate concentration with a kippery note developing towards the finish. Still, this seduces with its soft touch.
