Whisky Reviews for Jameson Irish Whiskey

59 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 72.27 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.

    My "calibration standard" for when trying Irish whiskies. OK so its mass produced and uncomplicated but to me an Irish whiskey should have a clean taste with some punch, and it does that job. Plus its really cheap.

    A thin and sugary, easy drinking whiskey with nothing to enjoy. OK for irish coffee, I guess.
