  1. mosesumike scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    If there is one of the friendliest, then it is the Jameson 18. Without ifs and buts, one of my insider tips. This blend comes so elegant and surprisingly complex that the low alcohol level hardly matters. One of the highest quality blends I know.
    • Nose
      88 88
      On the nose really appealing. Very intense and direct, he delivers sweet sherry notes with vanilla and ripe apples. A very complex nose when you bring time. Very tasty and stimulating aromas stand in the room above the glass.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Silky creamy appearance on the palate with all the fruits that the South German from the homeland so knows. Serve with lemon cake with a portion of bourbon vanilla. Also very spicy, he comes but more pleasant than the nose had previously said. Ripe tropical fruits dipped in honey.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long but suddenly gone without announcement. Also very sweet but drier, he sounds with his head up. He is one of the big ones in the Blend business.

  2. Kaleva scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Interesting Irishman, very pleasant and with quite complex nose, which is really pleasant but has some sharp metallic notes. Probably grain component? The taste is also pleasant but quite monotone with apparent oakiness. The aftertaste is rather long and pleasant. And the last but not least: 3-6 more degrees ABV would be a definite plus.
    • Nose
      Light, buttery (fudge), yellow apple, vanilla, sultanas, tropical fruits and honey notes, citrus peel, light oakiness, some metallic notes?
    • Taste
      A bit sharp and punchy with moderate spiciness, slightly sweet, peach bubble gum, vanilla fudge, woody, tobacco and leather notes
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, woody, walnut shells, leathery notes, light maltiness and bitterness

  3. Lorion scored this whisky 40 points Expert Senior

    What a flop. 40 points.
    • Nose
      Sweet, burnt hair. Furniture chips. Some honey and citrus.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity with lots of vanilla and wood. Something artificial.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweetish.

    Excellent whiskey if you want to try something different.
    • Nose
      Soft vanilla sweet and fresh sour citrus. Green apple and marshmallow. Soft sherry notes with nuts. After opening completely, the nose gets even better when the sour notes are fading away and the apples are taking over. Deeper down there's a Little dry hay.
    • Taste
      Very soft, smooth coming in with a lot of corn (reminds me of the bulleit rye) and a complex nutty taste. Oak and vanilla sweet with a tickle of oranges.
    • Finish
      Good half long finish, malty - grain, vanilla sweet. Light oak and nuts. Not drying out too much.

  7. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A really nice, round 18's from Jameson, has some nice combinations that I did not have that often.
    • Nose
      Very interesting flavors, fresh cocoa mixed with orange and grapefruit, vanilla sweets, fresh licorice, honey and malt, wax, somehow a little bit of nice rum, green apple
    • Taste
      Here too, the beautiful mixture of some fruit, orange, grapefruit, even a little mango, vanilla, sweet malt, fresh cocoa and honey with thyme, green apple, a little pear and nettle, licorice
    • Finish
      Sweet malt with apples, mango and melon, licorice, dry-fruity, medium-long

  9. dRambo scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Somehow delicious - but at the same time too boring for a whole bottle
    • Nose
      very sweet, creamy, oak cabinet wall, nuts, cocoa, wax, orange, lemon zest
    • Taste
      soft, sweet, round, mild, very oily, citrus, orange oil with dark chocolate and some mint
    • Finish
      spicy dry oak, wax with oranges, minty fresh cooling and warming at the same time, some resin

  10. Gloin scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The smell is very soft and classic, it makes you want more. The taste and the finish can not quite fulfill the promise that the whiskey promised in the nose. Nevertheless, he likes me very well, a very classic, satisfying whiskey, as soft and gentle as the cliché says Irish whiskey.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, sweet lemons, quince, some green apple, hay, including sherry notes, a little cherry, red jam, all tightly woven, expressive and appetizing
    • Taste
      Very soft body and gentle onset, sweet oak notes with a delicate bitterness, apricot, apple peel, malt
    • Finish
      warming and again sweet, tender oak notes, medium long
