This lightly peated Connemara (only 15ppm) was released in a limited edition of 7000 bottles. It wond a gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Fair.

Nose: lemongrass, dried apple, touch of peat (only 15ppm). Little sour note: buttermilk? Very good, though.

Taste: sweet and sour battle for supremacy. It does seem a little watery, though. Light almond and even lighter smoke. Touch of mashed banana. Quite a bit of oak. Hint of mint.

Finish: Gentle with a bit of smoke.

This is the kind of whisky that you’d put on the table while playing cards with friends during a winter night. And at the end of the game, the bottle’s gone and nobody minds!
