Ha'Penny Irish Whiskey Original Blend
Ha'Penny Irish Whiskey Original Blend, NAS, 40 %
Today I bring you an fairly new Irish blended whiskey. The Ha'Penny Irish Whiskey Original Blend is around 3 - 5 years old, and matured in a mix of bourbon and sherry casks.
This is a product from the Pearse Lyons Distillery in Dublin, Ireland. At least some of the spirit in this product is sourced from other distilleries.
You can buy the Ha'Penny Irish Whiskey Original Blend in Norway at NOK 410 (10892601). A variant was available in the UK recently. I expect we will see it appear in more places soon.
Nose: Light and fruity in style. Hint of alcohol. Tinned pears and vanilla.
Taste: Medium body and sweetness. Golden syrup and vanilla. A touch bitter. Wet planks and black pepper.
Finish: Short finish. Mild fruitiness - apples and banana. The golden syrup remains. Hints of mint. Still planks of the wet persuasion.
Comment: Easy drinking, but a bit boring to be honest.
