Jameson Black Barrel (previously known as Select Reserve in some markets) is blended from two whiskies: a small-batch grain whiskey distilled at Midleton Distillery once a year and matured in heavily charred ex-bourbon barrels, and a malted and unmalted barley pot still whiskey aged in sherry casks.

Clear golden amber.
Attractive leather rubbed with linseed oil, toasty oak and delicate apricot and stewed apple fruity aromas.
Rich, easy yet complex, fruity (stewed apple and pears with ripe banana) palate with pronounced vanilla, roasted almonds, majestic oak, gentle cinnamon and pepper spice.
Long barley finish with oak tannins turning dry as it fades with lingering vanilla and faint rye (burnt plastic-like and spice) flavours.
As the bottle label says, this whiskey is "charred for a rich smooth taste" - it's certainly easy drinking but with depth of flavour and complexity. A brilliant whiskey at its price point.
