Whisky Reviews for Jameson 18-year-old

33 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.21 points

  1. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Appearance: Medium orange-gold, oily.

    Nose: Apple, wood spices, hay, mint, dill, herbs, pickles, cherry, pear. A fascinatingly herbal nose.

    Palate: Soft, light, herbal. Spring flowers. Very floral.

    Finish: Soft and light, spicy and floral finish.

    With Water: Did not have enough.

    Overall: Probably 8 ml or so left in the bottle. This was a huge surprise, so different from the regular Jameson and quite reminiscent of a rye. Would like to try again from a fuller bottle to see if it’s different.

    Can't see any difference between this and standard NAS Jameson

    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.

      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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.
