Jameson 12 Year Old

70 cl

Jameson 12 year old has a wonderful pot still character combined with the smoothness you would expect from Jameson. The pot still content on the standard Jameson ranges from 5-7 years old. With the 12 year old, the extra ageing adds considerable depth and complexity. A heavier style of pot still whiskey is used and a good proportion is aged in sherry casks (again a higher amount than the standard bottling). The result is a whiskey that bridges the gap between standard blends and the heavier single pot still whiskeys from Jameson. 

This much loved version of Jameson has been discontinued and will be only available from time to time when we find sources of stock.
