Whisky Reviews for Connemara 12-year-old

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.59 points

  1. TDMartijn scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    This is liquid U2 in their 'Joshua Tree-period'. Very smooth, mature, no kick-in-the-face en very middle-of-the-road. In short: A very smooth and softly peated Irish.

    Very nice daily dram, I like it.

  4. Thermidor scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    I was quite stoked to try an Irish peater but this one suffers from a severe lack of body and a flat palate.

  5. dicembre29 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Peat. Pepper. Chocolate. Grape. Apple. More fruits. Leather. Salty. Just a hint of putty. Noses bigger then 40%. …and almost like a youngish Springbank/Hazelburn somehow (WTF?!). Very, very nice nose. Smells older than 12 years.

    Palate: Peat. Pepper. Slightly nutty again. Ok…more than slightly. Like licking leather. White wine influence. Grains at the back end with some grass.

    Thoughts: Great nose. Not as great on the palate. Still good, but I wish the dialogue betwixt the nose and the palate was a little more…coherent.

  6. granella2003 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Labeled by some as the
    finest Irish whiskeys on the market today, a traditional whiskey with a balanced
    flavor and a beautiful finish a delicious mix of complexity and elegance
    found.
    • Nose
      Aromas of rose, nutmeg and conifers exchange together with a sweet undertone of mint and something creamy, buttered popcorn
    • Taste
      A gentle aromatic taste of warm honey, butter, cashew nuts, toffee and peat with a hint of vanilla
    • Finish
      Beautifully balanced aftertaste with a firm, spicy bite and creamy peat make

  7. TheMue scored this whisky 78 points Member Junior

    The Connemara 12yo Peated is a light and cosy malt. The extra peat can sadly only be found in the nose.
    • Nose
      Sweet and bulky notes of honey together with malt, smoke and lots of peat.
    • Taste
      Nuts and salt, not too pungent. Far less peat than expected after the charming nose.
    • Finish
      Short, cosy, no sharpness. Sadly a bit too short.

  8. tomy63 scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    The peat dominates the whole and hides the other aromas, fishing, perhaps, some spices ... In short we feel almost only peat!

  9. alectron scored this whisky 78 points Specialist

    • Nose
      Found it hardly interesting, watery, hints of spices & peat. 68pts on nose for me.
    • Taste
      some citric notes mixed with spices. Namely bitter-y grapefruit peel drifting over into light pepper & general spices. Quite nice.
    • Finish
      Hints of peat, spices leaning towards red & black peper without being hot. medium length, bit too short for my taste though.

  10. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A peaty irish whiskey, interesting.
    • Nose
      Heavy and creamy nose. Peat light.
    • Taste
      I can taste some peat here, sweet smoke. Honey, toffee and butter.
    • Finish
      Long finish, honey and a hint of ash.
