  5. gunnie76 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Drinkable but the sherry seems chemical to me.

  6. tomy63 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A good mix of Connemara's usual peat (which I do not appreciate personally because I only smell of peat) and sherry. Everything is well balanced, the sherry calm peat well. A touch of sweet fruit stays on the tongue. A well controlled mixture!

  7. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A strange Connemara, can't get the smoke/sherry combo right.
    • Nose
      Neat: Powerful nose, and with a strange aroma. That's all I can nose. With water: No strange aromas now. Lots of wood and sherry.
    • Taste
      Neat: All I can taste is one hell of a weird taste, I can't put my finger on what it taste like.. With water: Now the weird taste is almost gone, and nice smoky flavors comes forward.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish, with few flavors, sorry.
