Whisky Reviews for Jameson Black Barrel

  1. Islaysmoke scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Typical Jameson, but with a little more sherry flavors and a lot of bourbon sweetness (vanilla). In the taste creamy vanilla caramel and again sherry flavors. Finish is medium long, a bit oily. Vanilla stays for a long time. Maybe not the most complex Jameson, but highly recommended.

  2. Gloin scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    The smell pleases, although he is not particularly complex. Unfortunately, the slight alcohol touch bothers something despite only 40%.
    In the mouth you do not notice the alcohol, again lacks some depth, but the impression is harmonious.
    The finish fits the overall impression.

    I can drink the whiskey with pleasure, even if he lacks the tension. The famous Irish gentleness I search here but in vain.
    • Nose
      Peach, behind it a little cherry, caramel, a little grassy, slightly alcoholic note
    • Taste
      Light body, cool medium onset, quite sweet, again peach, malt, delicate bitterness, light touch of wood, grapes
    • Finish
      A little more oak, again peach, caramel, tart beer, quite long

  4. Francishomola scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    This is marginal better towards to basic Irish offerings, provide deeper flavor, more fruit, longer finish. I do recommend skip all those and do yourself a favour and buy black label.At the same night drink along to Glenlivet 15, similar flavor profile, Jameson black is thinner, less depth, but similar on flavor wheel and on sales £25 compare to £37 I paid for a Glenlivet on sales as well is a good buy.

    little complex, a lot of oak and vanilla. Ideal for cocktails

  9. jonstonia scored this whisky 82 points Newbie

    A nice smooth whiskey, tastes almost like bonfire night in a bottle. Toffee apples, burnt wood. Caramel. Very different from most other whiskey's I've tried.
