Jameson Black Barrel is a great example of why you should always explore the unusual offerings of even the most everyday blend. The Jameson Black Barrel Whiskey is quite an intense, and yet oddly soft tasting whisky, very smooth due to it's triple distillation and yet carries pronounced wood notes due to it's maturation in double blackened oak barrels, despite thus the whisky is well balanced with nuanced notes of creamy caramel, papaya, nectarines and apricots rounded out with bitter spices and vanilla.
The marketing line is that Jameson Black Barrel pays homage to the Master Coopers of the Midleton Distillery who, with great care and dedication, char-work the bourbon barrels to release the richness and variety of the flavors. Well they did their job here
This Irish whiskey in a class is established by a marriage of two high-quality whiskeys, one being the small-batch grain whiskey and the other the pot still. One more full-bodied flavor, the other sweet, they complement each other but both a perfect cooperation. The two varieties of origin are first matured in sherry and Bourbon barrels (distilled out) and then fused together. The result is a taste which is very fruity and sweet complemented by notes of vanilla and burnt oak. The aromatic character of Jameson Select Reserve is dominated by fruits such as apricot, nectarine and papaya and overall strong. The filling of this whiskey is based on triple distillation in Ireland.
Jameson Select Reserve Black Barrel Irish Blended Whiskey is a 70 year old blended whisky. Rated an average of 4.7 out of 5 by 690 reviewers and available from Amazon for only £25.0, falling slightly short of liquid gold but this in a solid everyday blended whisky.
