Proof66 Notes

The Connemara 12yr is the aged expression of the line of peated Irish whiskies from the only currently operating independent Irish distillery.

John Teeling--master distiller--was quoted regarding this whiskey, "It represents the pinnacle, to date, of Cooley distillation and maturing skills."

The Connemara whiskies have their malt dried over a peat fire, yielding special aroma and flavor. Their whiskey is a "tribute to the region" where peat is still used as a fuel source.

Cooley Distillery launched in 1987 as the after converting a potato ethanol plant on the Cooley Peninsula by John Teeling. Their stated aim is to revive historical brands and traditional distilling of Irish whiskey. Cooley purchased several labels to give the new label credibility (Tyrconnel, for example). They mature their whiskey at the site of Kilbeggan and today produce a wide range of different styles. In January, 2012, they were acquired by Beam, Inc.

Like laphroaig moved to middle of grassy Ireland. Peat and grassy midland character, no coastal aroma. Not bad at all.

Very tasty. Cooley Distillery recommends this one neat or with a splash of water to bring out the bouquet of flavors. I enjoyed mine on the rocks. Has a bite on the finish but it's a good bite!
