We tasted this whiskey in an Irish pub in San Francisco. We knew we just had to have a bottle. It is simply an exquisitely smooth blended Irish whiskey that warms the palette and soothes the soul. The best we've ever had. Of course, it should be at this price point! The presentation is unbelievably beautiful and certainly a collector's lacquered box. You will not be disappointed in this if you decide to spring for it!
Jameson Vintage Reserve
"A triumph of the collaboration between the Jameson Masters, our hand crafted Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve is a true masterpiece. The advanced aged whiskeys in this magnificent reserve are brought together with pot still whiskey that has been matured in hand-picked second fill bourbon casks to create a mellow sweetness in specially commissioned port pipes. The result? Gloriously rich fruit character with an unmistakable barley finish. But don't take our word for it: this rare blend was voted the world's best Irish Blended Whiskey at the 2009 World Whiskies Awards.
Nose: A real full-bodied aroma. Initially sweet with ripe fruit notes of melon, bananas and dark fleshy plums. The unmistakable pot still spicy character combines to give hints of treacle, cinnamon and liquorice.
Taste: A mouthful of flavours. Mellow sweetness and toasted wood are complemented by fruit richness characteristic of the port casks. A touch of creamy dairy fudge and dark chocolate add to the complexity.
Finish: A tantalizingly long finish which covers the spectrum from the sweetness of fruit, through the spices to the unmistakable note of barley, where it all began." -Producer
