    Nose: Smoke and sweet fruits combined with farmy notes. Apple pie, pineapple from a can, vanilla and caramel. Very accessible, very inviting. The smoke blends in nicely.

    Body: Light-medium weight on the tongue, rolls down ever so smoothly.

    Taste: The pineapple and apple-pie come first, then citrus starts to wave them goodbye. Lemon which is accompanied with a nice touch of smokiness. Peppers set in, together with some bitterness. Very tasty indeed.

    Finish: Long peppery finish, ending bittersweet. The smoke is very subtle.

    Verdict: Another great bottling by TWM.

    A great Irish whiskey. Clearly a twin to the Cooley 1999 that was
    released last summer by Thosop, but a little more fruity and accessible. Around
    80 EUR.
    • Nose
      The aromatic and fruity nose is immediately marked by peat and stable
      scents. So this is clearly an independent bottling of wat Cooley markets as
      Connemara (while those releases are much peatier). Very waxy. Quite some hay. Lemongrass.
      Pretty sweet, too. Pineapple, melon, strawberry, tangerine. Marshmallows.
      Ginger, vanilla and caramel.
    • Taste
      It is creamy, smoky and very spicy on the palate. Sturdy peppers, ginger
      and salt. Licquorice that takes care of a bittersweet lining. Perfectly
      balanced by the fruit, in which citrus takes the lead.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and spicy. It tingles a long while on the tongue
      before dying a bittersweet death.
