  1. Wolfe Tone scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Sherry cask on the nose, with cacao, raisins and tropical fruits, also some banana, marzipan, leather and some pot still character.

    Loads of fruit, honey and grains on the taste, not subtle, but tasty nonetheless, some spices and almonds in the finish.

    Sweet, oak, maple syrup, vanilla, coconut, some menthol and oak cabinet wall. Got something of a good old single grain.

    This is my favorite! Very good balanced, and the spicy and sherry finish is excellent.

  10. wbarchive_149037 scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Not bad, far superior to his colleague without mention of age. The nose is rather good, though classic, the mouth is average and the finish almost non-existent. In the end a blend unpretentious and easy to drink.
    • Nose
      Not so light at 40%. From the classic apple, a little woody notes. We feel a certain sweetness, characteristic of the Irish. A nice nose not too marked by the grain.
    • Taste
      Here the reduction is much more felt. Not much to put in their mouths, yellow fruits, and especially a slight woody bitterness at the end of the mouth that reminds us that we are dealing with a blend here!
    • Finish
      Those final?

    Very nice, you can drink in the pub, I do not need a bottle of it.

  14. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Nose clean, floral and oak, no solvent. Mouth very light and pleasant, malt, fine oak and still no solvent. Final rather short. Simple but well done.

    Jameson 12 Year Old Special Reserve is richer and more complex than the usual Jameson Whiskey. This is a whiskey of great character with superbly mellowed flavours of toasted wood, spice and robust full bodied sherry. Originally known as `1780` after the year the Jameson distillery was founded in Dublin`s Bow Street, it was renamed to reflect its minimum 12 years of maturation in bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks.

    The wood seems too edgy and dominates for me too strong, the Irishman pinches in this whiskey ...
    • Nose
      Sherry keg in the form of dry mint; spicy caramel and lemon
    • Taste
      spicy, chocolate, the oak in the background
    • Finish
      the dry sherry cask almost completely spoils the latent caramel taste

  23. drkrylov scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    The aroma that I associate with a traditional Irish. A superb example for everyday drinking.
    • Nose
      Leather-like. Saddlery. Orange skins.
    • Taste
      Fruits, nuts, sugared almonds. Silky-smooth. Well-rounded.
    • Finish
      Juicy. Lively. Late touch of peppery earthiness.
