Colour: Straw yellow.
Nose: Leafy hay-like scents, a bit of sweetness too.
Palate: Earthy and peaty, without being as smokey as say some of your Islay peated whiskies. Oily mouthfeel, some soft honey flavours too.
Finish: Slightly sweet fade out, but it’s the peat that sits on the tongue for ages.
Comments: Apparently Ireland’s only peated malt, though I stand to be corrected on that point. Definitely a different beast to the Islay peat monsters, though there’s nothing here that really grabs me about the Connemara to make me want to have another.
