Connemara Distillers Edition
Top notch Connemara peated Irish single malt whiskey, presented as their Distillers Edition. Plenty of earthy, evocative smoke, paired with honey'd barley and juicy apple. We do like a good Connemara, we do.
Thought peat was all about Islay? Think (or perhaps that should be 'drink') again. All Islay fans owe it to themselves to check out Connemara from the splendid Cooley distillery.

Laphroaig Quarter Cask Malt Scotch
Laphroaig is a distillery on Islay, a small Scottish island renowned for its whiskies – many of which are heavily peated. It is considerably old (1815), and has used a slightly different technique in the crafting of this particular whisky. The whisky is first matured in bourbon casks (Maker’s Mark), and then matured in small casks (quarter casks) which allow 30% more surface area contact than regular casks. This allows for faster, and different, aging of the spirit. It’s a pretty unique technique in whisky
