Free tasting of Jameson Original Irish Whiskey, Caskmates IPA Edition, Caskmates Stout Edition and Black Barrel
Jameson Original Irish Whiskey
Jameson Irish Whiskey is a blended Irish whiskey. What’s that we hear you say. Well first we take the best of pot still and fine grain whiskeys. Then we triple distil them – not because we have to because we want to as it gives it its signature smoothness. Finally, we age them in oak casks for a minimum of 4 years.
A light floral fragrance, peppered with spicy wood and sweet notes. The perfect balance of spicy, nutty and vanilla notes with hints of sweet sherry and exceptional smoothness.
Jameson Caskmates: IPA Edition
Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition – Jameson Irish whiskey finished in craft IPA barrels, for crisp hoppy notes.
Floral, herbal hops, grapefruit citrus notes with subtle orchard fruits, complemented by wood shavings and a little nuttiness on the nose. Flavors of hops and light citrus with sweet herbal notes and delicate spicy tones. The lingering fresh fruit and hops give way to grains of barley and a signature smooth finish.
Jameson Caskmates: Stout Edition
Like all the best conversations, the one between Jameson’s Head of Whiskey Science and the Head Brewer of a local craft beer brewery, started at the bar. A swapping of whiskey and beer barrels soon after, resulted in Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition – triple-distilled, blended Irish Whiskey that has been patiently finished in Irish craft beer-seasoned barrels.
An initial aroma of freshly cut hay is complemented by a crisp orchard fruit character – green apples and pears, with a twist of lime zest. Mild pot still spices appear, deepening from green tea to hazelnut and milk chocolate. The initial sweet mouth coating typical of the Irish pot still inclusion is quickly complemented by the subtle touch of hops and cocoa beans from the beer cask finish. The finish is long and sweet with milk chocolate and butterscotch.
Jameson Black Barrel
Charring is an age-old method for invigorating barrels to intensify the taste. Jameson Black Barrel is our tribute to our coopers, who painstakingly give their bourbon barrels an additional charring to reveal their untold richness and complexity. The select double charred barrels produce a whiskey with even richer flavor and intense smoothness.
Time spent maturing in these barrels leads to intensified aromas of butterscotch, fudge and creamy toffee. On the palate nutty notes are in abundance alongside the smooth sweetness of spice and vanilla. Enjoy the richness and intensity of toasted wood and vanilla on the finish.
