Connemara Cask Strength is the only Irish whiskey to be bottled at natural strength. It is not chill-filtered, or aided by coloring and matures in oak casks. The Cask Strength Connemara has all the base flavor profiles of the regular version (which we review here) – just more of them. An herbal, grassy, peaty smoke with honey and orange zest. Connemara’s peat smoke is much more soft and mild compared to its Scottish counterparts, even in this 57.9% cask strength version. But we love Connemara’s natural tasting, farm-yard-sh type grassy peat smoke flavors – and the Connemara Cask Strength gives it to you with the volume turned up. Sadly, this version is not available for purchase in the US. Our bottle was obtained whilst visiting Ireland. BWG rating: 92/100.
