Jameson

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Jameson 12 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 43.00%
8 The aroma that I associate with a traditional Irish. A superb example for everyday drinking.

Jameson 12 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 For the money, this is the best damn blend you will ever, ever taste.

Jameson 12 Years Old, Old Distillery Reserve
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 I find the aroma quite sexy. The palate is big, but the finish leaves me wondering about the casks.

Jameson 15 Years Old Limited Edition
Pot Still - Ireland - 40.00%
8 Those oily aromatics are quite a shock at first. Shows just how different a true 'Irish' character was 15 years ago, or does Jameson benefit greatly from age?

Jameson 18 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 Even after 18 years, the pot still refuses to be mastered by the wood. Very drinkable.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Jameson 18 Years Old Master Selection
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
9 Robustly sexy. I always enjoy Jameson, but I really relished coming to grips with this one.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Jameson Gold
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 There is some virgin oak in this one, along with bourbon casks. Bonus points for trying something new, but would have expected more interesting results. I find it a bit light tasting. Try it with fres...

Jameson Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 A superb Irish for everyday drinking. I love this, though not quite as much as the 1780.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Jameson Limited Edition, 15 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 Distinctive. A very full pot-still Irish.

Jameson Original
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Not as interesting as it used to be, this brand is teetering on the brink of bland.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 46.00%
8 Best neat. A sumptuous whiskey. Highly recommended.

Jameson Select Reserve Small Batch
Blended - - 43.00%
