Connemara Peated Reviews

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.

Horrible

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

Expecting great things but....

Absolutely love anything Islay whisky related but after having this whisky sat on my shelf for 6months before cracking it open, I've found that it's very flat. Peaty... slightly peated at best. With sweeter notes. You can really tell it's watered down to a point it's thin. Won't be buying a second bottle

Lovely sipping whiskey

Although from the southern US, I drink only Connemara peated single malt Irish whiskey or Lagavulin 16 single malt Scotch whisky. As expected, the Irish is thinner and lighter in flavor than Lagavulin, BUT for less than half the price. Connemara is lovely and easy to sip, delicately sweet with just a hint of peat. More than acceptable when you're not spending in excess of 100$.

Not your typical peat from Islay but worth to try

I really love this expression of the Irish whiskey.
Very floral and fruity (dried fruits like plums and raisins), sweet with quite nice and delicate peat. The peat is very different from what everyone knows from Islay.
This is a typical example of the Irish whiskey which means sweet with hints of honey, butterscotch, and fruity sprinkled with peat making it very interesting especially for those who think that there is no complexity in the Irish whiskey.
Recommend it strongly.

Too plain

All Connemaras i have tried are very nice, but this one... It might work for people who just started to love peated whisky, but for the rest of us, one get soo much more adding just a little bit of money more. Please do!

On the edge...

On the edge of not liking it...
Very thin, very watered down whiskey.
It’s ok on the nose, honeyed sweetness, vegetal earthy peaty smoke..
Flat on the palate, honey, malty, smokey at the end.
Finish short and bit minty...

A "must try" for peat fans!

Was gifted this and what a find it was! Really enjoyed this fantastic peated whisky out of Ireland.

Fans of Islay will love this, slightly different in style to anything else I've tried.

Looking to get my hands on a bottle of Cask strength Connemara ASAP.
