Cooley Connemara Turf Mor NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Cooley Distillery is the only independently Irish-owned whiskey distillery in Ireland. It was founded in 1987 when John Teeling bought the former state-owned alcohol plant on the Cooley Peninsula and converted it into two distilleries-a pot still and a patent still operation. Since then acquisitions included the assets of the old A.A. Watt Distillery in Co. Derry (established in 1762) and John Locke and Co. of Kilbeggan (established in 1757) ; the latter is the oldest licensed distillery in the world. The company now produces three styles of single malt whiskey, several blends, and a small batch single grain. Distillation continues to take place at the Cooley Distillery with the cooperage and ageing cellars in the John Locke’s Distillery in Kilbeggan. This multi-Award winning whiskey gives Connemara consumers the ability to taste how extra aging brings out more character from the wood and rounds off the taste of the regular Connemara. The first release from the Collection involves "finishing" Connemara in sherry casks to impart further flavour and depth to the whiskey. Connemara Turf Mor has a nose of a pungent mixture of salt, smoke, spice and sweet all at once. The taste is very sweet with an explosion of peat on the tongue, lifting to fresh cut turf. The finish is dry with spice giving way to oak and more peat.
