Jameson Original

70 cl

Jameson is by far the best selling Irish whiskey in the world and currently sells at a rate of around 4 million cases per year. 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. This is a good starting point for anyone wanting to try a typical Irish blend.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
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.
