This is my first review on this site and I think Connemara Peated Malt is a good uncomplicated whiskey to begin with.
I bought this bottle over the weekend (on impulse) and its a bit of a reintroduction to Irish malts, which I've stayed away from for some time, other than Bushmills.
For around £25 this its pretty damn good value and it would happily be a staple on my shelf.
Nose: Honey, burnt nuts, peat (of cource) and something which reminds me of cocoa powder.
Taste: Woody peat, sweet smoke, more cocoa. Slightly rough on the through but in a good way.
Finish: Smooth but short and uncompromising.
I'm giving this 8/10 which is quite high but it takes into account the value for money which is big factor for me in this case.
Well done Cooley's!
