released last summer by Thosop, but a little more fruity and accessible. Around
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.
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.
The finish is long and spicy. It tingles a long while on the tongue
before dying a bittersweet death.
