Connemara Cask Strength

Irish Whiskey from the Cooley Distillery

Connemara Cask Strength Peated Single Malt Irish whiskey (~€350) is inspired by the ancient Irish tradition of drying malting barley over peat fires. For centuries, peat or turf was widely used in Ireland to dry cereal crops and to fire the stills. Connemara is a wonderfully balanced whiskey which combines the traditional smoothness of an Irish whiskey with the smoky richness normally associated with Scotch. Matured in bourbon casks, this bottling is at natural strength, at 57.9% ABV.
