The release of Pearse 5-Year-Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey in 2018 marked a historic milestone in the re-evolution of the Irish Whiskey distilling industry. It was the first five-year age statement Irish Whiskey to appear from a new distillery in the whole of Ireland in more than 25 years. Presented in 4,000 individually numbered bottles, this limited release 5-Year-Old Single Malt was produced on our two small-batch copper pot stills and aged in bourbon casks.
The design and packaging of our Pearse 5-Year-Old Single Malt bottle is inspired by the former church of St. James, now home to Pearse Lyons Distillery.
On the nose this whiskey is light and malty with hints of fresh oak, zingy citrus, fleshy fruit, vanilla, clove spices, biscuit and candied fruit. The palate offers a delicate maltiness, a light pepperiness, hints of crisp green apple, citrus, candied fruit, toasted oak, vanilla, candied apple and a warming clove spice.
