Alex Fridays
Expert Junior Alex Fridays Note
24 Jun 2018 11:25 am
Alex Fridays gave this whisky 84 points

It’s an unusual Irish whiskey. It’s a peaty and double distilled. Peat, apple, dust, sweet fruits and vanilla are the main notes of this whiskey. Connemara is an easy to drink and tasty.

Mephisto
Expert Senior Mephisto Tasting note
19 Sep 2017 11:19 pm
Mephisto gave this whisky 81 points
Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

One-dimensional, a lot of dried wheat. Behind toasted logs from the chimney. After a while also a matured fruit mix or compote. Baked apple with a hint of orange and cloves.

Taste

Grows and grows in intensity until it stings a bit and reaches the nose. This feeling stays for a moment and disappears after ~15 seconds. However, a lot of ashes, burnt wood and heavy oil. This is accompanied by the taste of crop and sweet compote with syrup. I can't experience a specific fruit here.

Finish

Not very long, cold ashes "ashtray", wood and the ceasing taste of dark chocolate and honey.

Comments

Not very complex, nevertheless, a easy (but smoky) one to drink at low price.

ColdAesthetics gave this whisky 83 points
Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Feuchtes Heu, etwas Grapefruit, grüner Apfel, Vanille, insgesamt eher zurückhaltend wie anscheinend alle Connemara in der Nase, auch hier wage ich feines Salz zu vernehmen im Hintergrund, wenn auch nicht so stark wie bei den Peated von ihnen

Taste

Hmm, sehr angenehm, voll aber nicht alkoholisch, schöne Apfelnoten, dazu Pfirsich, viel Toffee und Honig, Vanille, leichte Salznoten kommen dazu, Grapefruit, etwas feuchtes Heu am Ende dann auch

Finish

Trocken, Apfelschale, Heu, Eichenchips und Hauch geräuchertes Laub, recht bitter auch, da hätte ich gerne mehr der Frucht gehabt, mittellang

Comments

Also der Sherry bleibt hier wirklich extrem dezent, das hätte man so auch nur mit Bourbonfässern hinbekommen gefühlt, aber ein echt qualitativ ganz guter Ire. Wären Nase oder Abgang noch ein Level höher in der Nähe des Geschmacks, hätte er an den 85 sogar knacken können.

Color
Amber
Nose
 Открытый, влажный, зола, каменная пыль, лимонная цедра,промасленная бумага, лёгкие нотки копчёного мяса, слабые изюмные оттенки, точильный камень, сгоревший бенгальский огонь.


Taste
Острый, сладкий, перечная волна, уголь, зола, сливочно-кондитерские нотки.


Finish
Зола, металлическая кислинка, лимон, лимонный перец, кола, лёгкая пивная горчинка, жжёные сухари, корка грейпфрута.


Comments
Отличный ирландец, очень плотный и мощный для своих 43%, достаточно простой, но удачный замес из умеренно-фенольной основы, бурбонных и хересных бочек - время от времени каждая из них проявляет себя во всей красе, ценник также радует своей адекватностью.

Wolv gave this whisky 83 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

wirkt trocken mit Rauch und Zitrusnoten; Heu, Äpfel und Holz lassen sich dann noch finden

Taste

süßer, öliger Antritt mit passablen Fruchtnoten; Körper lässt etwas nach, dafür tritt hier der Rauch in den Vordergrund

Finish

lang und trocken, rauchig; es lassen sich noch die Echos von Trockenfrüchten und Honig erahnen
