Re: Jameson Master Selection 18 yrs Discontinued?
Brgreat5, I believe you are correct. I have a bottle with the code JJ18-7 so presumably bottled in 2007. Anyway, I also emailed IrishWhiskeyChaser, a member of this site, who I know to be quite knowledgeable on Irish whiskey. His reply is as follows:
"In relation to your Jameson 18yo ...as you have guessed it is the precursor to the current bottle so yes the Master Selection has been rebranded as Limited Reserve?. There are basically the same line but every batch from year to year will be slightly different from each other. However no real added value on it to be quite honest as it is only a few years old and not seen as collectable. Excellent whiskey by the way so if you plan to open it enjoy."
Guys, thanks for taking the time to answer my question.
