Even more Irish on Whisky Saga as I present the third whiskey from Pearse Lyons Distillery, Dublin. This time it is the Irish blend Pearse Lyons 5 YO.

Here is what they say about the product:

"A blended 5 Year-Old Irish Whiskey aged in all Bourbon barrels that is a grain and malt blend. This Whiskey has malt whiskey in it that has been produced on the stills that are now in place at Pearse Lyons Distillery at St. James."

You can buy the Pearse Lyons 5 YO in Norway at NOK 600 (10892401).

Nose: Mild and fruity. Green bananas and mango with a sprinkling of white pepper. Vanilla.

Taste: Medium body, and a bit rough in character. White pepper, vanilla and ginger. A bitter-ish touch of rowan berries. 

Finish: Medium to short finish. Picks up in spiciness actually. Fine peppery notes. A touch of oakiness.

Comment: Again fairly easy drinking, with some spiciness added. Comes across as a bit young.

Score 75/100
