Nose
Light and (bar the fact its smoky) slightly thin. Becomes exceptionally rubbery – inner tubes/tyre fitting garages, burst balloons.
Palate
Inevitably it's smoky –reminiscent of oak chips in a home smoker. Becomes slightly fungal and then the rubber note returns. There's sweetness in the centre but it's almost completely masked.
Finish
Greasy –a very late cut ... ?
Comment
Way, way too young.

Nose
Phenolic. Rubbery. Burnt tyre. Wet moss. Humus. A grassy note behind the peat. Dry hay, honey. Lemon peel.
Palate
Sweet then shifting to a dry spicyness. A farmyard flavour. Milk parlour ?
Finish
Short, malty.
Comment
A peatier than usual Connemara? Young obviously but well mannered and lively.
