Connemara 18 Year-Old Single Cask

Glass - 35.5ml€21.95

Cooley released a few of their peated single casks, mostly distilled in 1992, over the years, and this is one of the oldest to be bottled. This single malt spent its entire life maturing an a bourbon cask, so it's interesting to try it alongside the 18-year-old Amontillado cask Connemara, which was also exclusive to the Celtic Whiskey Shop in Dublin. The Connemaras are great at any age, with the more mature ones like this showing extra complexity and developing a little more slowly. A lovely peaty vanilla finish, it's one to spend a little time with.

Connemara 8 Year-Old Whiskey for Limburg

Glass - 35.5ml€12.95

Intensely smoky with lots of medicinal characteristics. Peppery with citrus fruits. Nice length.

Connemara Bog Oak Finish

Glass - 35.5ml€24.95

This was a very interesting, and successful, experiment carried out by Cooley's then Innovation Manager Alex Chasko. Three bourbon casks were fitted with new ends made from ancient bog oak and filled 80% heavily peated malt aged for four years. This was the same malt used in the Connemara Turf Mor. The other 20% is made up of malt from casks aged between six and 15 years old. The extra aging in bog oak was for about 12 months or so and it was bottled at a generous 57.5% abv. Rated 93/100 in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.

Connemara Cask Strength Original Label

Glass - 35.5ml€12.95

This is the full strength Connemara bottled at the natural strength at which it leaves the casks. It's is a much loved bottling that combines the smoke which characterises Connemara with some pronounced and powerful alcohol. If anything this seems to accentuate the smokiness and add some extra flavour. Definitely a whiskey to try if you are into smoky whiskeys.

Connemara Single Malt

Glass - 35.5ml€5.50

Connemara is rare amongst Irish whiskey, its hook being the smokiness associated with the malts produced by our neighbours Scotland. It's a style of whiskey that had died away in Ireland after the 19th century, when small distillers would probably have dried their malt with whatever fuel was available at the time. It's said that when the Cooley Distillery started up in the late 1980s, it had no plans to make a smoky whiskey, but at some stage peaty malt was bought and run through the stills with fantastic results. It's a lovely malty whiskey with Cooley's signature honey and pear notes as well as a beautiful waft of smoke.

Connemara Small Batch Distillers Edition

Glass - 35.5ml€12.95

An earthy smoke throughout with honey'd barley and applejuice.

Connemara Turf Mor Single Malt

Glass - 35.5ml€12.95

A Connemara with an extra peaty punch. This was produced using 58 ppm peat compared to the usual 20 ppm in the standard Connemara range. In 1001 Whiskies You Must Try Before You Die, Dominic Roskrow describes it as a brooding dark cloud of peat offset by some sunshine fruitiness...

Craoi na Mona Single Malt

Crown Royal Northern Harvest

Glass - 35.5ml€9.95

Somewhat controversially awarded 'World's Best Whisky' in Jim Murray's 2016 Whisky Bible. This is a great whisky and is definitely worth trying, but is it the best in the world?

Glass - 35.5ml€10.95

Big, big, big tasting with lots of body, syrupy texture and flavours of dried fruits, meat stock, smoke, and chocolate.

Daily Dram An Aingeal Dubh

Glass - 35.5ml€16.95

An Aingeal Dubh means 'the dark angel', but it's nothing to be afraid of... Belgian importers Daily Dram have chosen this Cooley malt for their Nectar range. One of 212 bottles, it's a grassy, fruity Irish single malt that went down very well with renowned French whisky expert Serge Valetin.

Dallas Dhu 1968-1984 21 Year Old Cadenhead

Glass - 35.5ml€59.95

Lots of orange peel and marmalade flavours combined with mocha, chocolate, leather, spice and pepper notes. A big whisky, not for everyone though!

Criminally underrated. This is a smooth and full-flavoured malt with touches of walnuts, creamy malt, honey and gentle smoke.
