Whisky Reviews for Jameson 18-year-old
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.11 points
- Very similar to the 2018 release just slightly less in the taste category.... There's just a small feeling that something is missing
- Nose: Deep and sweet with luscious toffee, Muscovado sugar, rich vanilla, and nice spices, with a big woody backbone, that balances the sweetness nicely : Rich and thick – a nose you can really enjoy for quite some time.
Palate: Oily and mouth coating with spices and oak up front, quite nutty and toffee’d as well, with the sherry sweetness and an earthy tone as well. Some citrus peel (ripe orange mostly), and more caramel candy, sweet butterd popcorn, pepper and oak. With water it is not as sweet, and the earthy notes / nuts / leather are amplified.
Finish : Toasted oak, chocolate, sweet sherry and toffee, wood bark.
Conclusion: This is a great example of an excellent blended Irish whiskey. At 18 years of age, and at Cask strength, It leaves many scotch whiskies in the dust. Not cheap though, but you’re getting a lot of whisky at 55.1% abv. Highly recommended if you can afford one. It’s hard to say which batch I prefer, one or two, but you can not go wrong with either. Impressive.
