Firstly, I don't drink beer. However, I'm still excited by Irish distillers experimenting with different cask finishes. I was looking forward to this whiskey. It's a standard Jameson whisky that has been aged for, well, whatever it's aged for, that is finished in Jameson whiskey casks that have previously held stout craft beer for 3-6 months before refilled with Jameson for a few months.
Nose: Coffee, green apples, chocolate
Taste: Dark chocolate, hops, creamy
Finish: Bitter, astringent, dark chocolate, oak
I like the coffee and dark chocolate profile. I applaud Jameson for trying something different. Unfortunately, the stout flavour conflicts with the whiskey and I don't care for it too much. I’m not put off by the unorthodox finishing cask. I have time for a wide range of whiskey tastes. The problem that this just misses the mark.
