I simply had to try this one as I have a soft spot for Irish whiskey - and this is the bestselling brand, I'm told by the store owner who sold me the bottle.
It was originally distilled in Dublin, but is now produced at the Midleton distillery in County Cork.
The nose is rather complex with spice, accompanied by floral and sherry notes. Adding a bit of water also revealed oranges.
The body is rich and oily, like most Irish dram.
On the palate it's rather citric with some vanilla and sherry (no surprise there)and again spices, that warm the mouth.
The spiciness continues into the long finish that gently warms the body. And while I can imagine most people will say this Jameson is deservedly no. 1 on the Irish market, I'm left somewhat dissappointed, but cannot put the finger on the reason for it. Maybe I expected too much?
Not bad, but not in my personal top 10 either.
