Whisky Reviews for Jameson Irish Whiskey

54 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 72.23 points

  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 70 points Administrator

    The most popular Irish whiskey in the world is a mass-produced, cheap and undemanding spirit that can be used for mixing purposes or sipped neat. On the nose, Jameson is rather featureless and lacking substance with an occasional alcoholic bite. Intense candy sweetness masks floral and grassy notes lingering in the background. A fresh and clean arrival is followed by sweet barley sugar, gingery spiciness and dry citrus fruits. The finish is short, simple and fades with hints of black tea bitterness. A sound Irish blend that is easy to drink over a conversation.

      Very slim start. Slightly grassy, ​​sweetish. Very little aromas that are not very intense. Turpentine comes through easily again.

      Very short. Maybe slightly woody. Something bitter.

    I'm not going to bother for a full tasting note. Smells and tastes like turpuntine and old school cleaning products blended together. Horrible stuff.
