Proof66 Notes

Jameson 18yr is considered the "limited reserve" expression and is the oldest age-statement of any of the Jameson varieties. This suggest to us that the 18 year aging will give the sweeter Irish whiskey flavor a gravitas lacking in younger varieties.

Founder John Jameson acquired the distillery in 1780... by 1805, Jameson had become the world's number one whiskey. While considered a blended whiskey (malt whiskey blended with corn whiskey to sweeten and the lighten the flavors), Jameson prides itself on producing every component from "grain to glass"--the blend is a blend only of married Jameson whiskies. Irish Distillers--the owning company--was purchased by Pernod-Ricard in 1988.

(4 out of 5). I purchased 1.5 ounces for $15 and tried it out of a snifter. This is a well made, respectable whisky, with strong aromas of vanilla and caramel. Is it overpriced? Frankly, yes- I would say Redbreast 12 year is just as good for half the price, along with a few other scotches and American whiskeys. That being said, it's still very good, and if you have the money, buy it. However, for $100 a bottle, I feel like you can do better.

I like it shaken with ice and strained. Extremely smooth and distilled and aged marvelously. A true pleasure to drink.

This is about as good as it gets in Irish Whiskey. The aroma pops in your nose and you can taste the flavors in the back of your throat down into your lungs. The taste starts off smooth and warm. The bold taste almost gets hot as you hold it in your mouth to absorb the full flavor. It finishes with a mild sting in the back of the throat and warmth that makes the tongue feel swollen. Simply delicious.
