Pearse 7 Year Blended Irish Whiskey
It's the 7 year old expression from Ireland's Pearse Lyons! This blended whiskey was predominantly matured in bourbon barrels, though a smidge was matured in sherry casks for good measure. The distillery's very own single malt is in the mix, so there's a good helping of malty notes alongside dried fruit, spice and orchard fruit.
Nose: Honeyed malt, clove-studded orange and plump, sherried dried fruit, leading into resinous oak.
Palate: Biscuity, with white pepper, dried apple and spiced pear crumble with a dollop of vanilla custard.
Finish: Freshly baked pastries, with sultana, more clove and orchard fruit.
