This is the Cask Strength Version of the Cooley distillery's Connemara peated malt, the only Irish peated single malt whiskey. There is no age statement on the bottle.
Nose: robust peat, gentle malt, a little brine, a little sweet fruitiness, and carnations
Taste: delicious mellow peat, with very strong delicious barley flavours, significant brine, and a lovely underlying fruitiness and black pepper. This is an outstanding palatal delivery
Finish: the flavours, especially the peat, remain very long and delicious, fading out slowly
Balance: this is a magnificent whiskey! The flavours are intense and wonderful, and harmonise together very well. Bottling at cask strength has allowed all of the magnificent flavour to be retained. This is easily one of my favourite malts
