Jameson is probably the most recognised brand of Irish whisky worldwide. This is the entry bottle to their range and I would recommend you explore their range further even if you are not a fan of this one. Available at all major supermarkets in the UK and occasionally marked down on offer.
Whisky: Jameson Blended Irish Whisky, 40% vol.
Nose: Light and floral with hints of toffee and caramel. Some dark fruits and nuts
Taste: Fruity and floral, vanilla, fruit salad sweets, some spice…maybe a hint of cinnamon, oak
Finish: Short but some light fruity notes linger a bit with oak influence at the end
Summary: This use to be a favourite go to of mine before I began my whisky journey. The overall fruity and floral profile makes this a very approachable whisky. This is a glimpse of what the rest of their range and Irish whisky in general has to offer. A good all rounder, neat or mixed. It is not going to excite your taste buds but it is dependable, versatile, available and reasonably priced.
Scoring scale: My scores reflect a balance of the overall experience, availability and cost for a whisky,
1 – not to my preference
2 – tastes fine but does not excite me
3 – more to my liking and would revisit occasionally
4 – very much to my liking and would consider as a regular feature on my whisky shelf
5 – permanent feature on my whisky shelf
