The Whiskey Makers Series from Jameson features three distinct expressions that highlight a component of the whisky-making process. The Cooper's Croze is the first US release in the range and debuted in August 2016. It was developed by Ger Buckley, the company's 5th generation Head Cooper, and named after his favorite tool, the "croze," which is used to create the groove at the end of the barrel to secure the head. Featuring virgin American oak, seasoned bourbon, and Iberian sherry barrels, this expression is without a stated age.

Tasting Notes

"The nose starts with grain and oak before showcasing floral notes and a zesty, spicy side. This is followed up with some honey and hay. The palate is soft, smooth, and well-rounded, with butterscotch, vanillins, cedar wood, and spice. The finish moves into rich chocolate, and both sugary candied fruits and lighter tropical fruits, finally leaving oaky spice, cloves, and black pepper."
