    Nothing wrong, no missing notes and is easy to drink ... but I like the younger, smokier ones better.

    not an "islay" whiskey, no wonder because here the barley is not dried on peat, however the barrel is held towards the peat smoke.

    The Connemmara 12 year old is basically a nice whiskey, but it wants to be more than it really is in the end. The tube advertises that the oldest and best casks are in here. And these are probably 12 year old ex-bourbon casks. Basically, that's not a bad thing, it's just that the price doesn't match what you actually get.
    • Nose
      Medium strong campfire smoke on the nose. Immediately behind it are intense fruits such as juicy apples and sweet oranges. In addition, spicy honey, herbs and sweet malt. Overall very fresh and fruity. Pleasant.
    • Taste
      Mild, smooth and oily with sweet honey and apples. Then a slight spiciness.
    • Finish
      The smoke is back in the finish, which lingers on the palate for a long time with some ash, a slight spiciness and a mineral note.
