Review and Tasting
Sampled on 24/12/2019
Clear, pale golden.
Linseed, leather, corn-on-the-cob and popcorn with subtle lavender and spicy oak.
Mellow, creamy barley and buttery sweetcorn with light cinnamon and nutmeg spice, hints of nutty sherry, vanilla and sweet honey.
Spicy notes emerge in the slightly sweet, lightly spiced buttery popcorn finish.
Jameson produces many expressions but this one, known by Irish Distillers (its maker) as "Jameson Standard" is the best-known. It is also something of a standard-bearer for the Irish whiskey category and despite the huge volumes produced, is consistent in its flavour and approachable character.
