Connemara - 22 Year Old - Peated Single Malt - 46% abv - 50mlRegular price €30.50
This brilliant expression from Cooley is getting harder and harder to source. With the resurgence of the peated category this is one to try as it really is a special whiskey.
This 22-year-old has been drawn from some of the earliest barrels filled at the Cooley Distillery and has been matured exclusively in first fill bourbon barrels. It was the oldest whiskey in the core Connemara range, no longer produced.
Famous for its peaty signature, which has somewhat softened in the barrel over the years to produce a beautifully balanced malt. Of course, Connemara 22yo is non-chill filtered.
Nose: Soft peat, toffee sweetness and vanilla ice cream underneath, and brighter hints of orange peel and berries.
Mouth: Honey and vanilla. The peat is certainly in the background but in a really nice mellow way. There is some aniseed and a peppermint note with a floral touch..
Finish: nice but not too long, with fruits and a little oak and smoke.
