This is a blended whiskey that is triple distilled, fairly standard fare for Jameson. For the 18 year however, the master blender selects whiskey casks aged 18 years (or older) that previously contained Sherry or Bourbon. The majority of the whiskey chosen is aged in the former. They are then re-barreled in 1st fill bourbon barrels for an additional 3 years.

Tasting Notes

"Amber honey is what you smell, but it is also what you see as the color of the whiskey. On the mid palate you are given more sweets in caramel and sugared cereal tastes but there's a touch of oil as well. The finish winds up on the bitter side with cocoa nibs and walnut husks."
