A Connemara originally marketed as a duty free exclusive. Turf Mór reportedly leans towards the earthy end of the peaty spectrum. Remaining true to its Gaelic name, which translates as “Big Peat”, this is 50ppm, and flavour-wise best described as “Islay meets Ireland”, retaining the approachable taste of Irish whiskey while delivering the big smoke associated with Islay malts. 46% Alc./Vol.
Connemara produce a peated Irish single malt, named for the area in Ireland.
Tasting note: Very pale straw appearance. Opening sniffs detect sweet manure-like scents – cow pat combined with sweet soot together with underlying hints of caramel and choc fudge. The farmyard notes slightly retreat on the second pass. Entry is discreet and soft. Mid palate explodes on the tongue delivering a semi sweet fusion of caramel, cocoa and elastoplast. Well balanced and pleasantly warming spices add depth. Concludes bone dry and fresh with the cocoa and elastoplast flavours fading into the lengthy aftertaste. Earhty and robust. Another compelling addition to the Irish whiskey scene.58% Alc./Vol.
