And 75% barley malt used is peated, and the fact is that blind, it evokes little Irish style and shows a lot closer to a Single Malt Scotch by his corpulence and its typical aromatic .
Society by launching Connemara Cooley reconnected with a distant past of Irish whiskey, the peat. Its sweet flavors of malt and peat are a limited Connemara "Distiller's Edition" obtained by adding small batches from sherry casks that add extra sweetness and spice wine for a remarkably controlled opus.
Peaty nose with floral notes of heather and honeysuckle. Peat smoke occurs without precipitation, with fine fruity notes.
On the palate, notes of honey, barley and fruit moving towards ubiquitous peat, softened by vanilla. The attack is fast soft power, even a little bite. Then the power of peat lining the entire palace, but accompanied by notes of yellow fruit (peach, apricot), but also spices (black pepper, ginger) which are even more. All very harmonious and well balanced.

Connemara is a wild and mountainous region on the west coast of Ireland between the Atlantic Ocean and lakes Corrib and Mask. This unique beauty created by nature is majestic mountains, lakes, rivers, valleys and the particular characteristics of peat fields full of rainwater.
These peat fields of Connemara are major fuel sources for the region and played a major role in the history and economy of Ireland. Connemara Peated Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a tribute to this region. Its complex characteristics and taste influenced by peat revive the forgotten tradition by Irish Distillers for a number of years. A tradition abandoned and found by Cooley Distillery Connemara Peated its Single Malt.
