Connemara Peated

Arguably the most important peated Irish whiskey, Connemara was the first in the modern era of renaissance to remind folks that Irish whiskey can be smoky. In fact, it often was, and Connemara Peated Whiskey is inspired by the whiskies that would have been made over the centuries in Ireland in areas like the one that gives the expression its name. Turf (as the Irish often call peat) was what was available to the early whiskey makers, so prior to the 20th century, peated whiskey was commonplace in Ireland. Connemara whiskey is produced at the famous Cooley Distillery and has a distinct but still delicate smokiness, balanced by a smooth texture and sweet taste. This profile has been highly decorated, receiving over 20 medals from major spirits competitions since 2012.

Well priced Irish whisky.
I was in Dublin and after an Irish whisky. I like a well peated Islay single malt so having a look at the tasting profiles I settled on this. Firstly this is an easy drinking Irish whisky that has (to me) a light balanced peat flavour. It’ll not be an Laphroaig, Ardbeg or even a Talisker but it’ll hold its own for what it is. It’s a good start and I’d ask anyone to give it a try.

I tried this based on the description on the case.
QUOTE rich malt and fruit flavours, underlying vanilla tones and deep full-bodied peat ENDQUOTE
And would have to agree. The sweetness may not be for some. I liked the smokiness. My girlfriend said she could smell it across the table and found it a bit overpowering but it is indeed as intended.

Mouthwash!!!
I can only concur with other reviews , dreadful whisky I fail to see how anybody with any discernible pallet could like this whisky.
Do yourself a favour and buy some mouthwash , the cheapest you can find .
This whisky is a disgrace !!

Delicious (but not from Connemara!)
I bought this in Dublin airport duty free and on inspection of the bottle i realise that I had stayed previously on holiday only half a mile from the distillery on the Cooley Peninsula near Dundalk (a long way from Connemara!). It's a lovely dram. Light and sweet and mildly peated. For the price it's a steal. No age statement so obviously young but this is a great product for the price.

Tastes of TCP
Dear lord I just swilled my mouth with TCP. No sweetness and the smokiness of an ashtray ... would avoid.

Interesting irish take on smoked and peaty whiskey. Deffinetly worth trying and a good beginners piece.
First time I saw this piece I was a little sceptical, but in the end it's exactly what you expect. It's light and sweet (as an irish whisky should be) with a good whiff of peat and smoke. Still I feel that it has some strength missing for perfection. But then again, if I wanted a stronger piece, I'd grab scottish. Solid 4/5

As described, a peated Irish whiskey!
I've been eyeing this for a while as I love Irish whiskey and I love peated Islays, so this seemed like a perfect concept, though having read a number of reviews on here I had lowered my expectations. Having finally taken the plunge, I can say that I am very happy I did, it's basically just what I had originally hoped.

I give it 4 rather than 5 stars as I do agree with some of the other reviewers that it is a touch thin, which is a shame as with just a little more to it I think it could have been a perfect 5. That said, it is as described. But despite the nod to the Islays, for me this is very much first and foremost an Irish whiskey (with some peat), rather than being like a true Islay whisky that happens to have been made in Ireland. So I think probably the Irish whiskey fan will get more joy from this than an Islay purist.

Respectable Irish Malt
This is a whiskey that cannot decide whether it is a scotch malt or an Irish malt. Not as good as some of the Islays like Ardbeg and Lagavulin but respectable. Quite well balanced, somewhat smooth but ultimately it struggles to find its place as a favourite in my collection. Good as a sipping whiskey when I don't particularly want something special.
