It all started back in 1780 when John Jameson created his triple distilled, smooth and perfectly balanced Irish Whiskey. Today, we continue his tradition by making sure Jameson is always as perfect as the day John Jameson released his first cask. It isn’t easy, but we want to make sure it’s worth every sip you take.
Jameson is by far the best selling Irish whiskey in the world. It has been tweaked over the years to make it mix well with other drinks which explains its popularity in bars and nightclubs. The blend is dominated by some light and crisp grain whiskey but also has a good dollop of heavier pot still whiskey adding some depth. Most of the ageing is done in first fill bourbon casks with only a small proportion in sherry wood.
Nose: To the nose, Jameson has a light floral fragrance, peppered with spicy wood and sweet notes.
Palate: Nice balance of spicy, nutty and vanilla notes. Quite hot and light in body with some peppery alcohol and some bittersweet chocolate.
Colour : Bright gold.
