Named for the rugged Atlantic coastal region, Connemara Peated Single Malt is one of just a few Irish whiskies that celebrate the revival of the tradition of drying the malted barley over peat fires.  The peat smoke that rises from the fires up through the drying malts guilds the barley with a delicately complexity that speak to the rich history of Irish whiskey production.  This whiskey is bottled after being rested in ex-bourbon barrels at a gentle 80 proof.

Tasting Notes

"Up front aromas of peat smoke speak of a tradition that has long since faltered, but this whiskey is anything but one-dimensional.  Behind the peat are delicate floral and honey notes, backed by sweet tones of malted barley and charred oak.  One sip reveals the complexity of this whiskey with rich notes of cocoa, smoked honey and toasted barley with distinct highlights of bright peat smoke.  The finish lingers with layers of smoke, sea salt and heather honey."
