    If there is such a thing as one of the friendliest, then it is the Jameson 18. No ifs, ors, or buts, one of my insider tips. This blend is so elegant and surprisingly complex that the insufficient alcohol strength is hardly significant. One of the highest quality blends I know.
    • Nose
      Really appealing on the nose. Very intense and direct, it delivers sweet sherry notes with vanilla and ripe apples. A very complex nose if you have the time. Very tasty and stimulating aromas are in the room above the glass.
    • Taste
      Silky, creamy appearance on the palate with all the fruits that the South German knows from home. In addition lemon cake with a portion of Bourbon vanilla. It is also very spicy, but more pleasant than the nose had said before. Ripe tropical fruits dipped in honey.
    • Finish
      Medium to long but suddenly gone without an announcement. Also again very sweet but getting drier he ends with his head raised. He's one of the big ones in the blend business.

    ... a great, ripe, noble, complex and very good "Irish Blend" which was also available at very reasonable prices in 2016 - unfortunately too expensive now!
    • Nose
      soft, mild, very fruity, flowery, sherry, caramel, some oak;
    • Taste
      soft, silky start, nice vanilla, fruits (peaches, lemon), wood, tobacco, oak; ripe, aromatic, quite complex;
    • Finish
      quite long, soft with toffee and spice, oak in the aftertaste;

  7. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.
