  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    The nose is subpar, the palate is perfectly fine. All in all pretty solid stuff, especially at its price point.
    • Nose
      Extremely shy. A very soft note of tinned pineapple, some more expressive aroma of breakfast cereal, and finally a whisper of lemon peel. Whiff of formaldehyde.
    • Taste
      Proper, oily mouthfeel and some of that pot still spice, accompanied by dried red fruit and honey. Slightly herbal too. Not bad, not bad at all.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices, before becoming lighter, greener and grassier.

    It's only good to know. Maybe good to mixing.

    I use it for long drinks.
    The rating though is for drinking it neat.

  7. marmeladow scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Good Irish blend (you shouldn't expect too much) with excellent PLV, better than those enjoyed so far (Paddy, Tullamore and Teeling Small batch / Rumfinish) and also considerably better than Famous Grouse from Scotland.
    Good experience, I largely share the more positive tasting notes, but not a must have, but quite good and easy to drink, e.g. also in long drinks, Irish coffee, etc.
    • Nose
      73 73
      Sweetness, spice and oak with vanilla.
    • Taste
      78 78
      Surprisingly powerful, but also sweet, spicy oak and with citrus flavors. It is pleasantly creamy and oily in the mouth, salivation is stimulated.
    • Finish
      72 72
      almost medium length, becoming drier at the end, not very expressive

  15. rottendon scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Coconut and vanilla, very gentle but clear, already creamy in the aroma

    Taste: very powerful start for its 40%, sweet vanilla with citrus zest, possibly of oak tannins. Very creamy

    Finish: not so short, slight pungency gives way to the delicious creamy vanilla notes, some tannins but not bitter. The slightly dry mouthfeel, which remains in the mouth at the end, remains really long in the mouth.

    Comment: Hard to believe it's so cheap. A really solid blend, the z. B. beats a 12-year Glenfiddich by lengths. Really beautifull!

    A superb Irish for everyday drinking. I love this, though not quite as much as the 1780.
    • Nose
      Very aromatic. Waxy orange skins. Linseed oil. Leather.
    • Taste
      Big, oily, creamy, sociable.
    • Finish
      Delicate. Peppery. More-ish.

    My first *real* whiskey - bought in Cork, Ireland, during a visit of the Jameson distillery a few years ago.After that, I tried the Scotch single malts. I still like the Jameson, but I prefer the products from Scotland. Sorry, dear Irish friends

  21. karloff scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    The first Irish whiskey i ever tasted and i was a long tome a go. Still one of the best. The tour of the distillery was first class
    • Nose
      Hay like with malt extract and yeast
    • Taste
      Very smooth with hints of honey and new wood
    • Finish
      A light finish and a wonderful one

    Of course, this drop does not have the huge bite of many single malts. But if you put the ratings of this whiskey (for example, JM 95 points!) In proportion to its price, you'll get a barely beatable score by most other whiskers in the world.
    • Nose
      A not too strong billowing wave of fragrance, reminiscent of a pleasing fruit basket and a spicy herb and flower meadow. Even the basic taste of whiskey penetrates gently.
    • Taste
      Pleasant wind in a sea of ​​aromatic herbs and flowers, accompanied by fine vanilla.
    • Finish
      Balanced velvety / silky finish from the taste buds of the key, slowly dwindling away in the infinity ...
