Jameson Blender's Dog

70cl

This whiskey celebrates the craft of Billy Leighton, who is master blender at Jameson. This is a blend of both grain and pot still whiskeys that have been aged in ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry barrels. Apparently three different spirit types are used in the grain and pot still element and four different barrel age profiles.

According to Irish Distillers this 'delivers butterscotch sweetness with a prickle of spice and tannins. Making whiskey requires a fair deal of science, but blending is an art.'

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Finish Exceptionally long, as the luscious fruit is slow to fade.
Tasting Notes from the Producer
Aromas (without water) From light citrus to pineapple, mango and kiwi notes, with the addition of figs and dates. A touch of walnut leads into the contribution of the seasoned American barrels and Spanish butts, vanilla and toasted oak.
Flavour A rich, round, creamy mouthfeel, with the sweetness of butterscotch, giving way to the prickle of the pot still spices. Succulent fruit brings the perfect balance as charred oak with some subtle tannin add to the complexity.
