Glenfarclas 12 year old reviewJune 23, 2014
Connemara Peated Irish Single Malt is what I call, a contender. Contender in the world of peated whiskies – not a super heavyweight nor even a heavyweight. Nice addition into the smoky whisky category. It really got me excited to try Connemara’s whole range, especially the Connemara Turf Mor.
Connemara single malt whiskies come from Cooley distillery.
ON THE WATERFRONT of peated Ireland
Connemara Peated got me thinking of the great Elia Kazan’s film, On the Waterfront. Which by the way, has probably the best performance by Marlon Brando ever. Connemara’s peaty single malt reminded me about Brando’s character Terry Malloy, giving the famous speech to his brother (played by Rod Steiger): “I could have been somebody, a contender”
In my opinion, Connemara has made a promise with the Peated Single Malt. A nice little promise to (peated) whisky drinkers. “Join us, we are a contender.”
This famous piece of movie history came to my mind while tasting Connemara Peated Single Malt. Enjoy!
