Peat is all about Islay? Drink again. Here’s a peated Irishman!
 
Connemara (named for the area in Ireland) is the name given to peated spirit made at Cooley Distillery in Dundalk. It is double-distilled in the Scottish style. As with Cooley's other Whiskeys, they are matured at the Locke's Distillery in Kilbeggan. Connemara is Ireland's only peated Whiskey currently on the market, although in centuries past smoky Irish Whiskeys would have been more common.
 
Smartass Corner
Connemara is also famous for a beautiful green marble mined in the region, it is considered as national gem.

Paul
Paul,
I really liked the smoked peated flavor this whiskey had. It was very smooth and had a nice vanilla finish.
Mike
Mike,
Too floral for me personally. Felt like I was drinking a pureed rose with a hint of tulips lol. Usually a Jameson drinker so you can gauge my flavor profile.

Sehr schön zu einer guten Gitarre

james,
did not like it too much. tasted like a mud pie my sister used to make when we were kids
David
David,
Not a terrible whiskey, but not what I was expecting from a Irish Whiskey. The peat threw me off. But, if you go into it wanting to taste scotch, you'll like it.
Charles
Charles,
didn't like the peat taste at all. I don't know what peat is but it made the whiskey taste like the peat moss I use in my garden.

Larry,
Love the peat and scotch aspect. Joined as one of my favorites

Beth,
This is too much like scotch for my taste but it does have a nicer aftertaste - smoother and sweeter, can definitely taste the honey, which makes it more drinkable for me.

Smoother than expected with a nice peat taste that resonates long after each sip.

David,
Loved the flavor, good finish, and for a peated whiskey it wasn't completely brutal as others.

The best irish peated single malt

I enjoy peated Scotches, decided to give this a go. I was pleasantly surprised. It is worth giving it a test.

By far my favorite irish that I can regularly buy.

My first peated whisky and it's not even Scotch! Lots of smoke and peat with a hint of sweetness.
Gordon

I couldn't get it past my nose. Extreme chemical smell. Not sure if it was bad.

Peaty and light

Sasa,
This might just be my favourite whiskey! I thought peat wasn't my thing, but this one proved me wrong.
