Blended - Ireland - 43.00% 8 Long one of my great favourites. In composition, it is the the simplest of blends, yet it demonstrates how malt can someimes be enhanced by a leavening of grain.
Bushmills 1608 Reserve
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 8 Very rich and sweet, but still a Bushmills.
Bushmills Black Bush
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 8 Beautifully balanced.
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 Its youth just gives it a hard quality.
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 6 A pleasant whiskey for everyday drinking.
Crested Ten Irish Whiskey, 10 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 This is a highly respected ‘sophisticated' whiskey, but it has never done anything for me. Good sherry character, but the whiskey itself is just too thin in the middle. I find it unbalanced.
Danny Boy 15 Years Old
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00% 7 An enjoyable dram. Well balanced with a good structure and a straightforward malty profile. Far better when neat. Water makes it soft and heavier.
Hewitts Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 43.00% 7 Soothing. A touch of more-ish dryness.
Inishowen Blended Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 More complex, and fuller in flavour, than many Irish blends. Very well balanced. Just a hint of a Scottish accent.
Limited Edition St. Patrick's Day
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00% 8 A pleasant and straightforward blend.
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 18 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 8 Even after 18 years, the pot still refuses to be mastered by the wood. Very drinkable.
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.
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00% 7 A solid, drinkable, everyday whiskey, lacking a little complexity, but very acceptable.
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00% 8 Someone has paid attention to the grain here – it feels more like a vatted grain. It's still very enjoyable.
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.
Jameson Limited Edition, 15 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 8 Distinctive. A very full pot-still Irish.
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00% 7 A curious beast this one – the odd nose belies an attractively smooth tasting whiskey with some very interesting flavours.
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 Not as interesting as it used to be, this brand is teetering on the brink of bland.
Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve
