  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    N: candied ash - seriously. Wow. Soft, oily, candied lemon zest, ripe exotic fruits. Stunning nose. Soft and elegant.
    T: honey lemon lozenges, light smoke, soft stone fruits, oily, nice mouthfeel
    F: smoke is even lighter now, soft oily fading finish.

    A stunner peaty Cooley. Really a big fan of this one

    Don't expect the typical Irish profile from this Cooley. I'm sure it's a peated Cooley, unfortunately the peatiness doesn't express well and overshadows the fruitiness.

      Oranges, ripe banana, vegetative peat, radish, orange peel strengthened while being a bit mentholated when first opened. Half-dried chenpi, it's quite orange oriented with some roasted nuts and bitter spices towards the end, specially some cooling herb near the rim bottom. Peat became more obvious after a sip.

      Fruity to start, mix of peach, grapes, apples with a splash of orange peel. All above lasted for at least 10 sec. Then black pepper, not bad but certainly not amazing.
    • Finish

      Fruit stem, orange peel, vanilla, followed by a thick layer of pepper spiciness. Wet burnt wood with a bit bitterness near the end.

    Cadenhead's Tasting Notes:

    Nose: Initial smoke followed by bruised fruits, popping candy, fresh mint and kiwi
    Palate: Kiwi continues, green grapes, black olives
    Finish: Feint mustard seed notes, subtle earthiness. Classic Peaty Cooley.
