A true original, Jameson 18 Year Old is an exceptionally balanced whiskey and is the elder statesman of the Jameson family. Its mellow, complex taste and lingering finale of wood, spice and toffee have been deftly created by the Master Blender; his handpicked selection of no fewer than three exquisitely poised whiskeys serving as the light, shade and foreground used to craft this unique blend.
Dutifully matured for no less than 18 years in a combination of bourbon and oloroso sherry casks, it’s given a final finish in fresh fill American bourbon barrels. Since its debut in 2002, stocks of Jameson 18 Year Old have been limited. So any opportunity to enjoy this connoisseurs’ choice whiskey should be savoured.
An aroma of oils with a touch of wood and spicy toffee. Wonderfully mellow and smooth, a mouthful of complex flavours – fudge, toffee, spice, hints of wood and leather, vanilla and a gentle sherry nuttiness. A long, lingering finish carries the theme of the wood, spice and toffee right through to the end.
