  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 70 points Super 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.

    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.

    I really like this one. Candy sweetness and dry citrus fruits are well combined. Good Irish blend.

    Not to be enjoyed.
    But as a schnapps or to mix it is okay in relation to the issue price.
    • Nose
      65 65
      Unbalanced, sour and slightly pungent on the nose.
      Citrus notes, gasoline, mango (you can guess), vanilla, gum.
    • Taste
      72 72
      Alcohol is noticeable. Muff, mango, old rags that had been in the garage for a few years.
    • Finish
      63 63
      Short and brisk.
