Een lekkere milde blend met een zachte afdronk.

Color
Pale gold
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.

Comments

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

Very aromatic. Waxy orange skins. Linseed oil. Leather.

Taste

Big, oily, creamy, sociable.

Finish

Delicate. Peppery. More-ish.

Comments

A superb Irish for everyday drinking. I love this, though not quite as much as the 1780.
