Jameson's Original Irish Whiskey

Jameson's is a blended Irish Whiskey. The original, has no age statement (NAS). It is made from malted and unmalted Irish Barley. The barley is dried in a closed kiln fired by clean-burning anthracite coal to preserve its clean malty flavours. Unlike Scotch Jameson's does not have a Smokey or peated flavor and unlike Scotch which it double distilled Jameson is triple distilled.

Nose: fruitcake richness, Malty, dried fruit

Palate: citrus fruitiness, Light, soft, creamy, Sweetness, Vanilla

Finish: some sherry, a little bit of spice

Although I prefer Scotch, all in all I enjoyed this Whiskey and would prefer this over certain
blended Scotchs.
