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.
Bright golden amber color. Lovely aromas of honeyed nuts and cereal, dried lavender, delicately herbal peat, yeasty dough, and beeswax follow through on a rich entry to a dryish medium-full body with ginger and praline notes. Finishes with a long, grassy peppery spice fade. Excellent.
