Connemara is a blend of aged whiskies, a 4 year, a 6 year and an 8 year. The 4 year old gives the whiskey a level of vibrancy, while the 8 year old adds depth to the whiskey while the 6 year old is needed to marry them together. On the nose, Connemara has an initial smokiness with an underlying sweetness. The palate offers up flavors reminiscent of a forest fire, with the creosote flavor continuing as well as a slightly medicinal note balanced with soft caramels and sticky buns. The finish is peaty, lingering and almost mysterious, with rich chocolate pot de creme notes at the end.
