Nose is Jameson regulars (vanilla, citrus, butter) faintly overpowered by a big bowl of orange sherbert. It's only 30%, so I was surprised by the hint of alcohol. It's more ester-y than ethanol, and it's very faint, but it's there Palate Alcohol nowhere to be found, drinks literally smoother than anything I've had neat that was sold at this proof. The orange flavor isn't really that strong, like an orange hard candy that got stale. Imagine running hochstadters through a Brita filter 100 times and then adding an airplane of jamo. The orange is extremely palatable, which saves the lack of orange "punch" or orange intensity. Mouth It's unbelievably smooth. I mean WOAH easy to imbibe. That's it though. Small kiss of salted grits and marmalade if you really do finish a big neat glass/shot, but otherwise you won't even notice it. The jameson ecommended cocktail is quality lemonade and I can confirm it's way better than this bottle by itself. This one gets 2.75/5 as a whiskey; totally smashable And 4/5 as a liquer/cocktail ingredient; a huge punch of booze and orange you could practically hide in any drink.
