Connemara 12 year old, 40%

Price: $75 Issue: Winter 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Connemara's wild west coast landscape is a world away from this peated whiskey's production at Cooley Distillery on Ireland's east coast. Greater smoke than Original; lemon and fresh cream translate into lemon lozenges and sherbet, with tangy tropical fruits and well-balanced smoke lasting throughout the finish.
