Jameson Caskmates Beau's Edition
Jameson // Ireland
For this Caskmates release, Beau’s Brewing Co. in Vankleek Hill, Ontario took their Strong Patrick Irish-style red ale (6.7% abv) and finished a sixth of the batch for four months in fresh ex-Jameson whiskey casks. Jameson then took the beer-seasoned casks and refilled them with whiskey for the finishing process. This release is currently exclusive to Ontario.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
Cask TypeBeau's Irish Red Ale Barrels
"This creamy whiskey’s nose is rich with toffee, butterscotch and vanilla icing. The heavy sweetness dries off on the palate where roasted malts and spicy tones changeover to a herbal light hops note. It’s this switch that makes this whiskey very easy to drink. It finishes with a nice tangy bitterness that is almost cocktail-like accompanied by a snappy spice and malty sweetness."
