Connemara Peated
Edward,
Not enough peat. It was weak.
Connemara Peated
guest,
Gentle, creamy, smoky
Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Whiskey
Krissy,
Tasted slightly off to me - too heavy on the smoke and oil notes and didn’t detect any of the vanilla or honey. Not a fan.
Connemara Peated
Petri,
I really liked it just enough sweetness smooth.
Connemara Peated
Joshua,
Big fan of the Peat, and always respect a Distillery for trying something different, but the finish is a bit thin (as is the case for most Irish whiskeys.
Connemara Peated
Bob,
Discovered this at the distillery in Dundalk. The smooth finish was pleasant and surprising
Connemara Peated
Pierre,
It has a strong but not overpowering smoky peat taste but instead of being followed by the scotch-y bite of usual peated single malt this one has the smooth sweet vanilla and fruit taste of an irish whiskey. A truly unique and enjoyable taste.

John,
Not great
Connemara Peated
Jim,
Best Irish Whiskey there is! However, you’ll either love it or hate it.
Connemara Peated
Allen,
I think you either really like this or really hate it. I do not care for it and the best way I can describe it is as leather, so much leather, like rawhide leather followed by more leather.

Robin,
While this is not an overly complex whiskey, it is really great value. I personally really enjoyed it!
Connemara Peated
EVA,
Not for me. But might be for you if you love peated whiskey
Connemara Peated
James,
Love love love. Was never a huge Irish whiskey guy, but my love of Laphroaig and appreciation for Glendalough caused a friend to give me this. Delightful.
Connemara Peated
Spyridon,
Loved it from first to last drop!
Connemara Peated
Tyler,
Interesting to find a peated dram away from Scotland. This certainly goes against the floral and grassy notes I typically found in Irish whiskey. The peat presence on the nose and palate is more subtle than most Islay pours. It leans more to the rubber and iodine end of the spectrum rather than charcoal and bacon. There aren't a lot of other flavors that assert themselves after peat, beyond a light honey sweetness. I can't say I'd opt for this over ardbeg or laphroiag, but it's an enjoyable peaty whiskey for the modest cost.

Thomas,
It tastes like a Moonshiner made it in November and filtered it through a bag of grass clippings from September! In other words I hated it!!
Connemara Peated
Edward,
current go to, nice smoke taste from the peat, mild spice
Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Whiskey
Edward,
Less smoke, more spice than the 10 year
Connemara Peated
Kyle,
I found this to be a magnificent whiskey. It smells and tastes just like sitting around a campfire with a nose of peat smoke and a woody sweetness. It is a smooth whiskey with a long and rich finish and a distinct hint of sweetness almost like vanilla or toffee. If you don't like heavily peated whiskeys then this is not for you, but if you do then I think you'll enjoy this. It comes in a nice box to present as a gift also. I will definitely try the 12 year old next.
Connemara Peated Single Cask
guest,
Refreshing and fruity with citrus tones, quite complex (peated single malt 40%)
Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Whiskey
Ralph,
Extra smooth, drinks easy. Peated Irish wiskey has a gentle smokey flavor that doesn't linger.the twelve year old is my go to spirit. "SLANGE"
Connemara Peated
Patrick,
Love the combination of light to moderate peat with vanilla & floral notes but at 40% ABV felt thin overall. Older (12-22yo) or Cask Strength likely to offer much more if you can find it.
Connemara Peated
guest,
Leggermente torbato, non molto profumato ma godibile se non si hanno enormi aspettative. Prezzo ottimo se si vuole tenere in casa da bere a fine serata

Casey,
Had it for years and it's a little too peaty for me

Perfect peat, mouthy flavor, easy finish - could drink a lot of
Connemara Peated
Brad,
did not like it thought i was getting a good irish whiskey along the lines of a Jameson. i found i don't like peated whiskeyat all.
Connemara Peated
Walter,
Delicious flavor great quality
Connemara Peated
Kevin,
This is exactly what it says it is. Its a peated Irish Whiskey. If you like the light, vanilla, butteryness of something like jameson and think it would be better with a dash of peat then this is your whiskey. I could handle a little more flavor forward either from the malt or the peat. Might try the 12 year.
Connemara Peated
Owen,
Have had better peated whiskey. Not offensive but nothing special either.
Connemara Peated
ROBERTO,
I love peaty whiskys, but I want there to be more. And this one has it. Smooth and peppery. How did they pull that one off? But they did. It was a fantastic spirit to bring to a tasting party. The smokiness at the end finishes it off well.
Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Whiskey
William,
A bit sweet with a smoky finish that is not overpowering. Can taste the peat and the oak.
Connemara Peated
Jonathan,
A perfect balance between Islay’s peat and Ireland’s honey shortbread cookies. Nothing more needs to be said.
Connemara Peated
Robert,
As an Irish single malt, I prefer Bushmills. This was quite good but, at least to me, it was missing the smoke. Of course, I'm comparing it to a Scotch Islay (Ardbeg, Laphroaig, and Lagavulin) which have a very strong smoky aroma and taste. My palate may not be as discriminating as some so . . .
Connemara Peated
Freddy,
Could use a little more peat. Overall a Nice whiskey
Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Whiskey
Daniel,
Not a huge fan of peat, but this is flavorful and not the common smoke bomb. Hints of smooth sweetness come through.
Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Whiskey
John,
I would put this Irish up against any pleated scotch in a blind tasting.
Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Whiskey
guest,
Smokey and smooth
Connemara Peated
Tammy,
If you enjoy smoky and peat taste, you need to try this.
Connemara Peated
Orlando,
It's ok... smoke/peat, clean finish, nothing crazy. Reminds me a little of Ardbeg 10. I prefer the Ardbeg.

brandon,
big fan of peaty scotch whiskies. bought this to see how they compare and was pleasantly surprised. held up with it's islay cousins rather nicely. an excellent dram and will frequent my liquor cabinet.
Connemara Peated
Jason,
Surprised, strong smokey/peaty taste but good notes is sweetness.
Connemara Turf Mor
Stephen,
Nose: Gasoline or asphalt. Very green, grassy, herbal, boggy. Sage and honey. Pallet: Alive, bright, active. Vegetation and smoke. A little bit of some fruit I can't place - pineapple, maybe? Very juicy. Smoke and a bit bitter on the finish.
Connemara Peated
Stephen,
Nose: Sweet smoke and mesquite. A bit toffee - more like burnt caramel. Some grapefruit. A touch sour after a few minutes. Some kind of sticky honey candy thing. Faint vanilla. Pallet: Sweeter on arrival than you would gather from the nose. Grapefruit - bitter/sour. Wood bitter. Very watery mouth-feel. Not viscous at all. Very bitter finish (not in a bad way - in a dark beer sort of way.) And the finish keeps going.
Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Whiskey
Travis,
Really Smokey and very bitter tasting. Not a fan at all.
Connemara Peated Single Cask
guest,
Smells like a beach bonfire Instead of hot, feels cold Long fuse and stays in the mouth/throat
Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Whiskey
Graham,
Wrong one. I had the peated, not the 12 year. Ignore rating.
Connemara Peated
Graham,
Strong smoke neat. A little water mellows it and brings out the vanilla.
Connemara Peated
Jonathan,
One of my absolute favorites thus far on my discovery journey. So smooth, it drinks like water. Just the faintest hint of a burn at the end with just the right amount of smoke for my taste. I’ve had some peated whiskeys that taste like drinking from an ashtray, but this one is just right. The other flavors are quite subtle, with apple juice being the most prominent for me.
Connemara Peated
Dorsey,
A great sipping whiskey, something to pull out while playing cards with friends or a nice palette cleanser after dinner.

Bradley,
Very sharp, bitter taste through
