One would most likely perceive with closed eyes that the Connemara Peated single malt Whiskey is a Scottish product. The Connemara is one of the very few Irish single malts, which make the leap between harmonious sweetness and characteristic peat smoke. It is known as the “World’s best Irish single malt”.
As the Connemara Peated single malt Whiskey arrives in a glass, we meet the special scent of fresh Heather, sweet honey as well as a slightly wooden nuance of oak.
In the taste the smooth Connemara Peated single malt Whiskey unfolds its full power. Honey sweet and soft as silk it is responsible for a soothing aroma. After a few seconds the peat smoke comes to the front followed by tones of tropical fruit and malt.
The finish of the traditional Connemara Peated malt Whiskey is convincing, appealing and endlessly long, without any aroma of bitter substances. A single malt with a particular finish that you will love. The Connemara tastes particularly good in a refreshing cocktail and is the ideal mix in an Irish Coffee.
The Connemara Distillery, named after the region of the same name, is a subsidiary of the international beverage and spirits company Beam Suntory and is burned in the Cooley distillery in the County Louth, Ireland. The history of the distillery dates all the way back 1757 and over the years has managed to keep the traditional Irish spirit alive.
In contrast to many other Irish manufacturers, the malted barley darts here over a peat fire, as is only done for Scotch Whisky. This creates a strong smoke that is not typically done for Irish single malt. Connemara is a blend of different aged whiskies with the oldest being 8 years.
Furthermore Connemara chose the double distillation process and an exclusive distillation tank. They have a slimmer body and a long neck. Here too you can see clear parallels with Scottish products.
Ireland is actually famous for her triple distillation in copper pot still, Scotland however for the double distillation. The water used here comes from a crystal clear water reservoir from the Cooley Mountains and proves the interconnectedness of the Connemara distillery with its region.
In summary, the multiple award-winning Connemara Peated single malt is the most decorated Irish Whiskey which creates the bridge between sweetness and smoke. Based on Scottish manufacturing methods it manages to be the exclusive product of Ireland. A single malt that will satisfy both friends of the Whiskey as well as Whiskey lovers.
