The trend of no-age-statement releases continues with this Irish whiskey expression from Pernod Ricard subsidiary, Irish Distillers. Released in April 2016, Jameson Crested is a triple-distilled blend of pot-still (malted and unmalted barley) and grain whiskey. A high proportion of the blend has maturated in sherry casks, with the rest in ex-bourbon barrels. It is bottled at 40% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"The makeover of the cult classic Crested Ten is hot on the nose but subdued with sweet maple butter and toffee. Pepper and ginger-spice puff from the bottle. Then it’s vanilla popping into silky honey and dried fruits in the mouth. The finish hits with a confident sherry scorched wood."
