  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Almost a rum, molasses, dried apricots, tasted a bit woody for me.

    From the Old Jameson Distillery at Bow Street in Dublin. Closed in 1971. Funny to note the misspelling on the label: 'from Jamieson's'. There are two different bottlings of this vintage, this one at 68,1% and another one at 68,2%. I don't know from which dusty cellar Bertus got this whiskey from, but it's a real treat!  In the same serie of 150th Anniversary in 1991 Cadenhead managed to bottle other Irish whiskeys from long gone distilleries such as Daly's Tullamore and DWD's Jones' Road Distillery.
    • Nose
      Oh, oh, what a fantastic nose is this! Very rich. Truckloads of prunes. Strawberry jam. Kirsch liqueur. Fruitcake. Earthy notes as well. Hints of coffee. Raisins. Roasted chestnuts. Most likely matured in a sherry cask.
    • Taste
      Thick and 'fattish' with an alcoholic punch (did they mature this whiskey in a freezer?). Dried apricots. Blackcurrants. Marmelade and bitter oranges. Raisins again. Dark chocolate praline. Various herbs such as such as thyme and rosemary.
    • Finish
      Long. Cloves. A little pepper. Cinnamon at the end. Probably one of the best whiskies I tasted in 2015.

    A delicious, fun, and challenging whiskey! Had the pleasure of tasting this beauty at the 2018 Gathering.
