Description

In the early years at Jameson, our unused barrels were left exposed to the elements in the courtyard of our distillery. When the time came to fill those barrels with whiskey, our coopers would invigorate them with a quick char. But what started as upkeep proved to have a nice effect on the whiskey that rested within. Whiskey that has spent time in double charred barrels carries an untold richness and complexity. Matured in a combination of American oak, sherry casks and double charred bourbon barrels, Jameson Black Barrel is a blend of ‘small batch’ grain and traditional Irish pot still whiskeys. Rich flavors of fruit, toasted wood, warm spice and vanilla sweetness, the double charring delivers an embellished finish. The end result – a fitting tribute to double charring and the fearless coopers who uncovered it.

Nose Butterscotch and creamy toffee, spicy pepper, and hints of ripe succulent fruit Taste Concentrated spice, nutty notes, vanilla sweetness, sherry fruit flavors Finish Smooth and mellow with an intense and rich finish

The former Bourbon barrels used to mature this whiskey were “charred and double charred,” the producer says, to coax more from the barrel wood. Look for an almost pina colada-like effect: coconut and tropical fruit aromas, and a rich, honey-soaked palate that shows caramelized pineapple and dried apricot.Sumptuously rich and intense whiskey emerges from these double-charred casks; a seduction of butterscotch, treacle, toasted nuts, scorched coconut, raisin, and vanilla essence. Secure in its deep-centered sweetness, it revels in caramelized sugar, dark vanilla, pecan nut slice, creme brulee, peppery spice, and fleshy fruits gloomily submerged in sticky, umber syrups. Memorable for its long, satisfying, toasted aftertaste, heavy on the vanilla and raisins. Reviewed by: Jonny McCormick (Summer 2018)Peach skin and freshly milled oats are fragrant yet restrained on the nose. Savory and silky in the mouth, the flavors quickly turn to piquant baking spice that pleasantly tingles on the tongue. A roasted woodsy flavor makes for a long finish. - 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge
