What is Jameson Irish Whiskey

Test: Jameson Irish Whiskey

Jameson Irish Whiskey is a blended whiskey from Ireland. First of all, the Midleton distillery in the southern Irish town of Midleton of the same name produces a pot still whiskey from unmalted and malted barley, whereby the drying takes place without a peat flame. Together with the water of the Dungourney River, fermentation takes place and then triple distillation in copper stills. After maturing in former sherry and bourbon barrels made of oak, the pot still whiskey is married to an in-house grain whiskey, which is triple distilled from corn and barley malt in a continuous still. Bottling is done with coloring and with an alcohol content of 40 percent. More information about the brand and distillery of the tested spirit can be found on the Jameson overview page.

Smell / taste

On the nose, the Jameson Irish Whiskey is very mild as well as sweetish-subtle of vanilla and soft caramel. There are also light wood notes, a little honey and floral notes. A slight trace of alcohol has a refreshing effect.
On the palate, there are sweet aromas of vanilla and light caramel as well as spicy extracts of intense dried fruits and nuts. In addition to a bit of creamy honey, a moderate sharpness with hints of sherry can be seen in certain places.
The finish is medium long, with vanilla, cream, nuts and a little dried fruit.

If you add a few drops of still water, the smell appears particularly creamy of vanilla and cream, accompanied by subtle dried fruits.
However, the taste is watered down a bit. The very sweet aromas of cream, some vanilla and toffee reach the palate.
The finish is medium long, creamy with cream and a few dried fruits.

Recommended way of drinking

We recommend enjoying Jameson Irish Whiskey straight at room temperature. A little water can be added to try, but the taste will quickly dilute. Adding ice cubes or cooling is unsuitable, as this will result in the loss of aromas.
The whiskey is predestined as a basis for cocktails and long drinks, such as the whiskey sour or the Jameson & Ginger Ale. You can find more recipes for remixing on the Jameson website .
