Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Bright amber color. Smells of toasted grain, dry breakfast cereal, sawdust, and wheat bread. Taste is medium-sweet, tobacco-like, minerally, and utterly seductive. Aftertaste is deep, moderately viscous, oily, and buttery. (Apr 2014)
The Jameson Masters carefully select a high proportion of single Irish pot still whiskey and a rare small batch grain whiskey, all matured in flame-charred bourbon barrels and toasted sherry casks.
The trademark Jameson notes of toasted wood and spice develop while the rich pot still whiskey matures in the dark, aromatic warehouses of our single distillery. The rare, sweet grain whiskey - not found in any other Jameson Whiskey - is triple distilled in small batch quantities on just one occasion each year.
This bold combination of charred barrels, deepened spices and exotic fruits, results in a dark and full-bodied taste experience that is completely unique and unmistakably Jameson. It took 232 years to get here, but we think you will agree that Jameson Black Barrel was worth the wait.
