Time for an Irish blend today. The Pearse Lyons 7 YO, from Pearse Lyons Distillery based in The Liberties in Dublin.

Here is the official blurb on Pearse Lyons 7 YO:

"A blend of Irish grain and malt Whiskeys, hand selected by our head distiller. It is predominantly aged in Bourbon barrels with a small amount of Sherry barrel aged whiskey in the mix. It is a 7-year-old blend. This Irish Whiskey has single malt in it that has been produced on the stills that are now at Pearse Lyons Distillery at St. James."

The Pearse Lyons 7 YO is available to buy in Norway at NOK 700 (10892301).

Nose: Mild and fruity. Vanilla and almond paste. Banana sponge cake. Rounder and more balanced - clearly more mature than their 5 YO (more on that shortly).

Taste: Medium body and velvety mouthfeel. Rich sweetness. Golden syrup mixed with white pepper and fiery ginger. 

Finish: Medium long finish. The ginger and the sweetness remains. Mango and bitter oranges on the finish.

Comment: Quaffable, but it does not really get the blood flowing.
