Jameson Tweet Tasting

Jameson Rarest VintageWhat better day of the year than St Patricks Day to be part of a Twitter Tasting held by Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) from The Whisky Wire, he unfortuanately took unwell just before it and we would like to wish him a full and speedy recovery and thanks to Alwynne (@themisswhisky) from Miss Whisky who stepped in to Steve's considerable shoes for the evening.

A damn fine selection of drams with the the Select Reserve and the Rarest Vintage Reserve really setting the bar high for me. Irish Whisky is not something i normally go for but i need to spent more time hunting out for sure.

Try The Whisky Exchange for these and other cracking drams.


Jameson Gold Reserve

Oh a very intriquing and welcoming nose on this dram, one that you really want to stick your nose further into the glass for.

Pick up a bottle from The Whisky Exchange and try for yourself

 

i could spend a good amount of time with my nose in this glass, soreen malt loaf and lightly toasted brown bread mix with hints of fresh vanilla and dried apricots touches of molasses and dememera sugar coming through with a hint of almonds (cherry bakewells) and flora

honey nut cornflakes with extra nuts, some granola mix and a dash of strawberry yoghurt, quite creamy and buttery, very nice

Creamy, buttery and honey nut

This is the standard Irish blend that many of us will have had over the years, and a decent dram it is too.

Pick up a bottle from The Whisky Exchange and try for yourself

 

soft and gentle nose here, floral and vanilla on the nose, nothing too in your face though,touches of pink grapefruit pith, sweet but bitter, some maltiness here too, a slice of soreen even maybe

the palate is creamy and fresh, light vanilla and touches offresh grapefruit pith mix with dewy grass and light honey.

Very fresh and easy going, very drinkable

Not at the cheap end of the whiskey market this dram is expensive and deservedly so.

Prett mch sold out everywhere try The Whisky Exchange every now and then to see if they get any back in stock.

 

instantly cherries, deep dark Turkish cherries with creaminess surrounding like a Black Forrest Gateaux plum jam and demerera sugar join in the mix with a splash of maple syrup and pine needles

sweet plums with demerera sugar and a dash of maple syrup, more creamy/oily ness too, cold custard and victoria sponge

sweet plums and sugar, yummy

This is mch more floral and grassy than the first couple of drams, even a slight hint of smoke

Pick up a bottle from The Whisky Exchange and try for yourself

 

tropical fruit, mango, papaya, pineapple all in a pie with undercooked doughy pastry with some dried cereal notes of alpen and granola with a helping of butterscotch angel delight.

fruity, more honeydew melon and kiwi than the tropical fruits from the nose but that butterscotch note still there

butterscotch angel delight and fruit
