  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 80 points Super Administrator

    Irish whiskey and peat - do these two go together? Connemara's peatiness has its own style, which is distinctly different from Islay's peat bombs: it is more herbal, restrained and well-integrated. Light and floral on the nose, there is a mix of heather honey, citrus and whiffs of smoke. On the palate, the clean and peppery arrival is followed by an aromatic kick of lemon zest, bitter tea and hints of salt. The peat smoke returns in the finish, lingering on the tongue. Although slightly uneventful and simple, this malt offers a nice variation from the 'Irish theme'.

    As a campfire it is actually not too bad.
    But nothing spectacular at all.

  6. Malthead19 scored this whisky 66 points Expert Senior

    - a somewhat robust and special Irishman
    - not quite as mild and significantly smokier than that
    expected classic Irish taste
    - for about 20 € you should try it
    • Nose
      slight malty Irish odor, light to medium-strong smoky note
    • Taste
      Rauch, and a slightly sweet kind, but somehow it seems a bit out of round or unbalanced on some days / moments
    • Finish
      short finish;
      short aftertaste
