Connemara Cask Strength
Peated Single Malt
Connemara // Ireland
There was a time when peated whiskeys in Ireland were common, particularly on the Atlantic coast where peat bogs are plentiful. That changed in the 19th century when coal arrived. The Cooley Distillery launched Connemara Peated Whiskeys in the 1990's, reviving a once fine tradition of peating barley. Bottled at cask strength and non chill filtered.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"The peat smoke is present on the nose, but really comes alive when a few drops of water are added. Hey, it's close to 116 proof, it's okay to add water. There is a vegetal quality on the nose as well as hay. This is not a sweet whiskey, but there's a just a spoonful of apple butter that makes the medicine go down, in the most delightful way. "
