Connemara Peated Single Malt Irish Whiskey – August 16, 2012

Connemara Peated Single Malt is produced in the Cooley Peninsula in County Louth. This bottling was matured in bourbon oak casks. It’s Nose is smoky and fruity while it has a clean earthy taste, rich in smoke, that leaves a subtle honey aftertaste.  While adding a splash of water will diminish it’s Nose and takes away some of the sharpness, it fills it out, increasing its peat flavour.  It works well with a smoked Irish cheddar and could easily enhance a meal rich in smoked foods. The tasting bottle was purchased the Hazeldean and Main LCBO location for 53.70 CAD.
