Jameson // Ireland
Released in 2016, the Jameson Deconstructed Series is intended to showcase different aspects of the production process and their contribution to the overall flavor in the brand's core range. Master Distiller Brian Nation has broken the taste of Jameson into three main components: Bold, Lively, and Round, and has selected different casks that highlight each of these aspects for each of the bottlings. The Round emphasizes the contribution of the wood casks during the maturation process. It's been triple-distilled and bottled at 40% ABV. Note: This is a Global Travel Retail exclusive.
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.
"On the nose, there's a subtle mix between vanilla, creamy toffee and leather, followed by nuts and almonds. The nuttiness keeps on going throughout the palate but ripe fruits, such as plums, figs and raisins appear. Nothing too aggressive though, every flavor stays in its own place. The finish is long with the ripe fruits coming back all over again along with a lingering oakiness. "
