Connemara is double distilled in two small pot stills to ensure the whiskey is full of robust flavor and character.and to my knowledge it is the only peated Irish whisky out there, which is odd considering that most Irish barley in the past were dried with peat. Nose: Nose: I am getting some rubbery notes, also some new make this is a young whisky.. oil, earthy peat, wet tires Palate: Malty and peaty, with a lovely roundness to it, fills the mouth just right , a sweet and peaty combo, slightly herbal with a toffee feel to it too. Finish : Smoke, peat and earthy with a sweet tang.

There is also the Suir Peated Malt by Adelphi, but that may well be produced at Cooley as well, I'm not sure. I was very fond of the Connemara Turf Mor, which I think is better than this Peated, but am especially looking forward to trying the soon to be released Connemara Bog Oak (although at 250 EUR a bottle, that's probably not ending up in the collection).
