McConnell's 5 Year Old

‘McConnell’s 5 Year Old’ was first established in Belfast in 1776 and was a hugely successful brand for over 150 years. Now the brand is thriving again and the team at Belfast Distillery Company is immersed in “Restoring The Legend”. Brothers John and James McConnell would be happy that the business they built in Belfast years ago is once more in excellent spirits. Aged 5 years, McConnell’s is a fine blend of Irish malt and grain whiskies which have been gently rested in select bourbon casks, bringing beautiful overtones of vanilla sweetness, ripe fruits, butterscotch, and pepper spice . . .


Our signature blended Irish Whisky is aged for 5 long years in handpicked, 1st fill, ex-bourbon barrels which add a delicate, subtle sweetness to the whisky and also provide a deep oak woodiness and light char to the finish.

Light citrus notes, peppered spice and vanilla undertones.

Earthy fruits, butterscotch and vanilla sweetness from bourbon barrels, white pepper followed by an oak woodiness.

Sweet, spice, oak, with lingering ripe fruits.

ABV: 42%
