  1. Hegu scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    Pot still whiskey means in Ireland that both malted and unmalted barley has been used. Aging in five different types of barrels, three of which Irish, American and European oak have not contained alcohol before and the last two are familiar Sherry and Bourbon barrels.
    • Nose
      Lots of fruit, apricot, ripe mango, pineapple, vanilla, red berries, cardamom, ear tree dough, cigar box,
    • Taste
      The taste is surprisingly sharp compared to the strength and the scent side offered much more, an endless amount of new and new scents, while the taste side is much more direct, dry, tannic and slightly fruity, there is also spiciness.
    • Finish
      The aftertaste continues tannic and spicy. It ends surprisingly nice and long, leaving a cinnamon burn on the tongue if you like that, but the balance of aroma and taste is very great.

    A good, successful whiskey that actually tastes like Jameson even without grain. Finally a pot still in Jameson's core range is a huge cause for celebration.
    Although the higher alcohol strength makes it more attractive than a Redbreast 12, in my opinion it can't hold a candle to a Powers 12 John's Lane, you can still taste the youth too much for that.

  8. Archer scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A single pot still Irish whiskey from Jameson, how long has it been since there was such a thing. Just for its sheer existence you should actually give it 90 points, because what golden times these are for Irish whiskey that you can have something like this in your glass again.
    A so-called Five Oak Release with ex-bourbon, ex-sherry and virgin oak casks. I feel like I can "taste" the Virgin Oak Casks as I can imagine their use being the reason this single pot still lacks creaminess. In addition, of course, there was also the fact that quite young whiskeys were married, at least four years old, as you can read in Irish Whiskey Magazine. Yes, that would fit.
    It's good that it's available for a comparatively slim 60 euros (slim by Irish standards). And ultimately you can very well overlook his youthfulness, because it (the youthfulness) is there, but it doesn't constantly jostle into the picture.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Fudge and toffee, caramel and spicy dark honey. A typical pot still character is not initially noticeable, but it develops gradually, so that after a while there are cardamom and cumin, nutmeg and pepper. Subtle, but still clearly noticeable. Crushed kiwis, gooseberries, the freshly peeled green bark of a young branch.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The 46% immediately unfolds very strongly on the tongue. Here the spices are very present from the beginning, above all black pepper and nutmeg, but also cinnamon and some coriander can be identified. Tangerines, orange peel, dry wood. Dark chocolate, cold coffee, ginger bread. I was still hoping for a little creaminess, but no, it doesn't come, rather it remains very dry and spicy over the entire journey, the fruit notes only add accents.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Almost medium-length finish, in which the fruit is allowed to edge up even more. Nevertheless, dry and spicy notes predominate in the finish.
