Connemara
Peated Cask Strength
Reviews and Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Lightly golden, pale yellow. 

Smell / Nose / Aroma
Smoky, peaty balanced by heathery notes.

Flavour / Taste / Palate
Full bodied, with a peat surge. Delicious sweet barley flavours, underlying fruitiness, also peppery.

Finish
Very long. Powerful and hot, peat clinging to every crevice in the mouth, whilst still remaining sweet. Slight notes of honey and vanilla.

Comment 
Enjoy neat or with a little water to release the aromas. Works great with Cashel Blue Cheese.

Todd
Todd,
You do get the alcohol in the aroma as expected, but earth and smoke are present as well along with some sweetness. You get the peat and some malt and fruit in the flavor, but the combination along with the cask strength makes my lips and tongue vibrate. Small sips are in order for this one. A dash of water doesn't change the taste much. While not usually recommended for single malts - this might be best over an ice cube as it lets things mellow out. I have had the Connemara 12 Year before, and recall enjoying it more - in the future I'll stick to that one.
