Jameson Gold Reserve

70 cl

Jameson Gold started out as a limited edition expression that was originally created for the Asian market. It proved to be very popular and it was added as a permanent member of the Jameson range. The blend has been tweaked a little since it first appeared and now seems to be more rounded and harmonious than initial releases. The Jameson Gold features three well-aged pot still whiskeys, one of which was aged in new American oak barrels. New oak can be quite aggressive and tends to add a lots of flavour but also some tannin and woodiness, so it has to be used sparingly here. The composition of Jameson Gold is quite complex with lots of different pot still and grain components all coming together in an elegant and smooth package.

Unfortunately this much loved bottling will soon be discontinued and will be replaced by a new range of no-age-statement Jameson whiskeys.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Fragrant wood, rich pot still with a touch of sherry sweetness.
Palate All the creaminess and honey sweetness come together to create a taste sensation of spicy character, a smooth complex whiskey experience. A very long finish with a pleasantly peppery finale.
Colour Bright gold.

Jim Murray, A Taste of Irish Whiskey 'In a word stunning! There is a rich, full pot still character one normally prays for in a Jameson and it arrives healthily and kept in good company by ripe juicy sultanas, a yeasty fruitiness and a dollop of acacia honey. Taste: Sweet, crisp start with the unmalted barley arriving first. Then there is an eruption in the mouth as a massive wave of rich, creamy oils and honey take over the proceedings. Comment: No words I put here can do justice to its complexity. The whiskey has a touch of everything, in just about perfect proportions. I have said blender, Barry Walsh is one of the world's finest blenders. This, his latest creation proves the point. An absolute masterpiece.'
