Description

 
Connemara is a wild, mountainous region on the west coast of Ireland, lying between the Atlantic Ocean and Loughs Corrib and Mask. The peat bogs of Connemara are major fuel sources to the region and have played an important role throughout Irish history as an energy source and in the production of whiskey. However, as many of the distilleries in Ireland were located alongside a canal, the transport and use of coal in distilleries became more efficient than peat. This temporarily killed the tradition of drying malted barley over peat fires in the production of whiskey. Managing Director of Cooley Distillery, David Hynes and chairman John Teeling have resurrected this traditional Irish custom, creating Ireland's only peated malt. 
 
Noted whisky writer, Michael Jackson commented of Connemara “The revival of rustic peatiness adds a whole new element to today’s palette of Irish whiskey flavours… lots happening. Chimney pots of smoke. I love this whiskey.”  - Whisky Magazine Issue 15

Tasting Note: Golden amber colour. Light aromas of dried fruits, raisins, and nuts. Soft and supple entry, dryish medium-bodied palate with delicate nut, buttery dry caramel and reedy wood with a touch of peat. Delicately balanced on the fade with earthy notes.
