Jameson 18 Year Irish Whiskey
Matured for 18 years in hand-selected oak casks from America and Europe, including sherry casks, this rare whiskey is then finished in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels. This rite of passage introduces subtle traces of vanilla to an exceptionally balanced, mellow whiskey. The elder statesman of the Jameson portfolio.
The nose displays aromatic oils with a touch of wood and spicy toffee. The palate is wonderfully mellow and smooth, a mouthful of complex flavours –fudge, toffee, spice, hints of wood and leather, gentle sherry nuttiness and vanilla. A long, lingering finish carries the theme of the wood, spice and toffee right through to the end. Bottled at 40% abv.
