Nosed from the bottle, I smell sawdust and sour pickle juice. In the glass it is much softer, still with fresh wood notes but also creamy vanilla and hints of lemon. Nice enough but somewhat restrained.
In the mouth it is light-bodied and quite silky. Noticeable malt presence with nice vanilla flavour, quickly becoming oaky and spicy. It dries at the back of the tongue and leaves a rather dull but pleasant finish.
Overall I find this blend quite decent if unremarkable. The best part of it is the initial malty sweetness on the tongue. From their website it looks like this is a blend of malt and grain, without any pure pot still. Maybe that's what I enjoy Jameson more.
