    Nose: The expressiveness is very expressive, the aroma is overwhelming, and the unique flavor. If you are blind tasting, you will not necessarily think of beer, but you will definitely nod when you talk about beer. Hops, honey, floral, simple, clear, and straightforward until it hits you.

    Drink: The wine has a good body fat, hops, honey, floral, juice, simple, sweet, expressiveness is still good, and there are many sweetness brought by hops in the end rhyme.

    Overall: I'm afraid this is not formalism. The flavor of IPA beer is very good. It is undoubtedly a very successful product, and the price is still so affordable. Thank you.

    • Nose
      Quiet sweet on first contact, but I must say, the IPA character comes through pretty nicely. A very singular kind of bitterness on the nose. Citric acid, bitter, white and pink grapefruit. With literally a drop of water, it gets a little more one dimensional to the advantage of the sweetness.
    • Taste
      Of course, very light, but consequently very drinkable, luscious. With the water, the taste does not change much.
    • Finish
      Slightly bitter, citrus peel, citrus oils on the finish

    It’s.. interesting I guess. There aren’t many beer-finished whisk(e)ys out there and I appreciate the experience. From an objective (for the most part) point of view, this isn’t great. It’s what you’d expect from the basic entry level budget Jameson but the beer cask brings a few new (mostly unexciting) flavors to the table. I’d take this over the standard Jameson any day of the week, but that’s not saying much.
    • Nose

      Obviously young. Hoppy citrus, lemon, orange, mint leaf, shortbread cookie, pineapple, mango, maybe even a little passionfruit, very slight wood. By far the best part of this whiskey, I would actually quite enjoy the nose if it wasn’t for the oh-so present ethanol smell.
    • Taste
      76 76
      Metallic & sweet at first. The hoppy note from the IPA barrel is noticable. The sweetness soon dissipates and turns quite spicy and bitter (zesty). Shiny vanilla, grapefruit, unripe green fruits, dill and overly steeped tea come to mind. Not pleasant.
    • Finish
      75 75
      Very short, sour citrus and cardboard, becomes dry.
