Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: a metallic, coppery tang. Dusty grains, hint of cocoa. Orange rind? Not unpleasant but quite closed.
Taste: Silky, medium-bodied texture becoming quite spicy on the tongue. Again a sharp metallic note typical of Jameson. Some faint fruity notes (apricot, peach) linger in the background.
Finish: somewhat bitter (could it be the hops?), but a nice fruity taste persists.
Balance: There isn't really a lot to recommend this whisky. Can't say whether it is better or worse than standard Jameson, but in any case it doesn't strike me as much of a departure.
