Show rating data charts
Distribution of ratings for this:
Colour: Light gold.
Nose: Fruity and sweet to start, just like sloe gin. Icing sugar and a touch of vanilla with a touch of fresh pine needles.
Palate: Sweet, vanilla and fruit but quickly being overtaken by peppery spice and oak giving a bitter taste.
Finish: Bitter, spicy with a touch of fruit.
Overall: Jameson - one of those whisky brands everyone recognises, but is it any good? The best comparison I can come up with is Jack Daniel's. I don't mean in terms of taste but in the fact that everyone recognises Jamesons and everyone has probably tried it, but it's not actually that impressive. Easy to drink - yes, but it lacks depth and I at least don't find it as smooth as people say.
That said it's cheap and for what you're paying it's not that bad. It's also great as a mixer and goes really well with ginger beer! I'm interested in trying more of what Jameson has to offer and seeing if their other whiskies are more interesting, particularly as they've recently expanded their range.
