  1. Archer scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    The much-smiled supermarket Jameson. Smooth, as you can find it written down on the label. But you do him a little injustice if you label him as a cheap home. Of course it doesn't show off flavors, but it cuts a fine figure with what it delivers (single pot still whiskey light). For 15 euros you can buy much worse whiskey.
    • Nose
      78 78
      A mild and velvety nose. Green apple, banana, peach. Mild seasoning with nutmeg, savory and cinnamon. Develops over time, becomes fuller, the aromas become more intense and plastic. Now a little solvent too.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Very soft initial contact with the tongue. Creamy. Sweet apples, bananas, peaches. Slightly dry. A mixture of spices that is reminiscent of those found in single pot still whiskeys from the same company: nutmeg, pepper, cinnamon, coriander. Toffee, nougat, milk coffee. Becomes increasingly dry.
    • Finish
      77 77
      Even if you can't twist the aromas too much apart in the finish, it stays dry and fruity on the tongue for a relatively long time. Something just short of medium length, surprisingly. Otherwise: chocolate-flavored fruit cake.
