  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    This tasting note is based in a Jameson Irish Whiskey for the Japanese market (Japanese back label and Japanse label in the neck). In a head-to-head tasting with a 40% expression of Jameson for the European market I detect a slightly different palate. In my view the 'Japanese' palate is more mellow and less sharp/yeasty than the 'European' batch. Therefore the Japanese version also has significantly more complexity and depth than the European version.
    • Nose
      Light. Fresh cedar wood and cut grass. Apple-mint. Some floral notes of orchards and rhododendrons. Orange marmelade. Later on even some unexpected fudginess.
    • Taste
      Quite oily with vanilla cream. Dried apricots. Gaia melon and Golden Delicious apples. Also raisin and sultanas. Sugared almonds at the background. It's very smooth and relatively complex for such an inexpensive whiskey.
    • Finish
      Medium long with quite a lot of sweetness. White pepper. Honey. Liquorice. Speamint at the end.

  3. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A really pleasant and uncomplicated whiskey. No great depth, but solid and something for almost everyone. A neatly made blend that delivers what it promises for its price.

  9. drkrylov scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    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.
