Launched in March 2018, this second Jameson Caskmates release follows the Stout Edition. Both editions are based on Jameson's "standard" edition which is aged in ex-bourbon and oloroso sherry casks, with a further unspecified aging period in beer seasoned barrels, in this case, Irish Pale Ale.

The casks used for both Caskmates final finishing periods are ex-bourbon casks previously used to age Jameson and these are supplied to the nearby Franciscan Well brewery in Cork City where they were filled with beer and then returned to Jameson.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 12/09/2018


Clear, medium golden amber.


Toasty oak, overripe banana, vanilla, floral honeysuckle, grapefruit oil, treacle, nutty caramel, peach and apricot skins and kernels.


Toasty oak tannins and malty cereal, banana, unripe apricot, cider apple, treacle tart, zesty grapefruit and delicate spice.


Biscuity maltiness with salty sour zesty grapefruit and more assertive spice than is typical of Jameson.


Fairly youthful whiskey cleverly and rather attractively given additional character by aging in IPA seasoned casks. The beer adds attractive fruitiness, particularly zesty grapefruit.
