Connemara Peated Reviews

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.

Sweet peat

Excellent value for the price. This is a sweet peat whisky, a great intro into smokier whiskies.

Soft, peaty, not too challenging

Love it. Not too heavy, very smooth with enough peat to keep you interested. Perfect for an introduction to peat, or for a gentle Sunday evening sip.

Great Intro to Smokey Peaty Whisky

Light, clean, slightly peated Irish. Very drinkable. If you want to dabble in the peat side of whisky, let this gem be your introduction. Lagavullin, Talisker and Laphroaig are all lovely but may be too strong for your first few smokey, peaty adventures.

It tastes exactly like you'd imagine from a peated Irish whiskey

Connemara Peated tastes like an Irish whiskey that has been (wait for it...) peated! If you have any familiarity with Irish whiskey and Islay scotch, this is easy to imagine. And if what you have imagined isn't to your liking, pass on this bottle. I, however, was intrigued enough to grab a bottle recently. The peat is distinct but nowhere near as intense as a Lagavulin or Laphroaig. The base note is typical for an Irish offering, but a little too thin in both texture and fullness of flavor. It's that 40% dilution at work, and this would definitely work better at a higher concentration. I find myself just wanting more of all of it, but it is tasty enough and I won't struggle to finish the bottle. I don't know that I'd buy another bottle, although the Distiller's Edition is apparently 43% ABV, and that might be enough to push this over the hump to being something highly enjoyable.

The worst tasting entity that has ever passed my beard, and I once almost drowned in a slurry pit. To say it tastes peaty is a collective insult to turf, the sap run off of which I’d rather drink a gallon of than have to even cast eyes on this bottle of absolute horror. Scotch whisky is for the scotch palette Irish whiskey for the Irish palette and Connemara is for the 12th July pallet
