CONNEMARA cask strength 58,6%

Aggressive. Peat. Faint charcoal. Lots of sugar cane. Possibly cardamom. After warming something chemical or glue-like emerges.

Refined sugar theme continues and almost in full domination. Initially something charcoal-ish. Peat certainly present but somewhat overshadowed by that massive sweetness.

Massive wall of peat. Dry.

Not sure what to think of this one. Certainly an enjoyable whiskey but there is room for improvement. The peat could do with acting a bit more "extrovert".

Rating: 7,5/10
