Connemara 12 Year Old

A peated single malt whisky from Ireland. Winner of numerous international plaudits - this truly is a great effort from distillers, Cooley.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Lemony and fresh. Quite light, oily peat which melds with a deft touch of light apple and pear, a hint of custard, and creamy malt.

Palate Sweet, fizzy almost, with rustic, earthy peat, atop rhubarb and custard sweets, cream, malt and granary toast with melted butter. Smoky too, like a driftwood on fire.

Finish Light finish, medium length, some vanilla and tangy fruit with traces of oily smoke and spice.

Winner of 2 spirit awards

Reviews for Connemara 12 Year Old Peated
The Best IRISH whiskey out there!!!
They knocked it out of the park with the 12 yr! The fruitiness comes out followed closely by some really smooth smoke.

Thumbs up !
Lovely on ice, zesty with a bite of pear drops. Smooth like most Irish with a nice mild earthiness. If Laphroaig is a 10 and Lagavulin an 8, this is a 5.5.

A true classic of its own
Best thing ive tasted, love the good ol' tank of the peated bliss. 10/10 was so excited, drank most of it as soon as it arrived. Incredibly smooth, a few drops of water to balance that sweetness you look for.

Liked it. Will Keep Drinking it.
Seems to be an acquired taste. Smooth yet “earthy,” a slight burn on first taste, then a sweetness and a slightly sweet aftertaste.

Keep this on hand for any occassion
It plays out on the tongue, nose and palette exactly as described above. I took 2 tastings. The first was straight out of the bottle in an open glass rather than the shifter. I wanted it open and less pungent. The second sample was over clear ice for slight deletion. The pete taste was consistent through both samplings. The clear ice weakened the whiskey a little too much for me. But it was refreshing when chilled. Those who like mild Pete will like this one. Those trying for the first time will be enamored with a fine introduction.

The very best Irish Whiskey
Smoother than 21 yr Macallan with smooth vanilla woody taste that varies with each sip. Take the cap off and sniff - it's like pulling into shore on the West of Ireland's Connemara coast. The turf burning in the air. It's magical. My favorite single malt.

Very Nice Dram from Ireland.
Light and fruity with a distinct smoky and peaty aroma. Silky smooth and honey sweet attack with malt and fruit giving way to fullbodied peat. Complex yet balanced with vanilla oak overtones. Golden honey followed by an extraordinary peat explosion across the mouth and palate.
Or the short version: We got a winner here folks! ;-)

Very mild and mellow for a Connemara Whiskey.
As a devoted Connemara drinker I found the 12 yr old to be very mild and smooth, as expected perhaps?
I suppose the 12 yrs in the cask took away alot of the fiery and full flavour as one find in all the other Connemara whiskeys. If you are a peat fan and love the turf/smoke/tar explosion in your mouth this is not the whsikey for you. However if you appreciate a mild turf experience this could be the one for you.
