Insider knowledge: Jameson Irish Whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from Ireland. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Jameson Irish Whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
The nose is full and floral with a smooth sweetness. Marmalade and fudge, Madeira and a little cut grass note. The palate is thick and of good body with notes of orchard fruits, both fresh and cooked with a little vanilla cream. The finish is of medium-length with spice and honey.
Smooth smooth smooth.My fave Irish whiskey.

I started out as a huge Jameson fan. But learning about and trying other whiskys showed me how mediocre Jameson is. Not much depth to the flavors. Very simple though smooth. Definitely a good place for beginners.

A very good blended whiskey suitable for any occasion

Best choice for sweet whisky lovers.

This has all the character and beauty of an Irish whisky that really shows that Ireland can do it just as well. Smoothness, sweetness, subtle oaking and malts that only the best master blenders can create. One of the greatest blends around. And it costs smeg-all.

MId level cost. Love it. Very affordable and love the smoothe taste. I drink sipping Whiskey on the rocks. Who needs all the fillers! Jameson is the best by far that I can afford and I love! I am well aware that there may be more out there that don't comepare but for an average Joe like me Jameson is the best!

Last review is part of this review. Jameson is all I will drink. Jameson is #1 In my book.
Seriously, where is the taste, the texture, the class, the after taste, the 'wow' factor? This is a great whiskey for those in the novice class. If you like this, you need to dip your toe in the water a little further - please.

Wanted to dislike this Whiskey, initially it was a tad disappointing but it benefitted from mellowing out in the glass. Still not my favourite Whiskey but annoyingly good. I am a Bushmills man at heart and resent the cult status Jameson has- but it is a bit deserving of it!

This made me realize im a scotch single malt drinker afterall. Jameson tastes good but thats about where it ends.

All I seen was "This made me realize im an abstinence kind of guy afterall. Sex feels good but that's where it ends."

Smooth, easy drinking, good but short hit of tingle/smoke to it. It's good flavour but just not that much of it. Highly recommended to anyone who hasn't tried whiskey before. Comes in 200ML bottles where I am in Canada which I think is a big plus.
I give 79/100, alot based on it's easy nature and price.

As a Scot, I know my whiskies. This is up there with the best, better than any blend out there by some distance. It has a nice sweet, almost caramel, taste. Exceptional.

While the nose certainly gives a sense of life and body to the whiskey experience, the palette flags in terms of intensity and showmanship. The balance is relatively good, blending subtle hints of menthol with sherry, pear, and apple; and what it lacks in complexity it gives in pure refreshment. Overall, this is a multipurpose whiskey: carefree, unchallenging, flavoursome. Great for mixing with other drinks.

It's good for mixing 7 and 7's and has a smooth flavor, gives a bit of a hangover if consumed too much which kills it for me. For this price range I prefer Paddy.

Jameson is certainly a good blended whiskey; the finest of the more commercial Irish whiskies in my opinion. The nose is freshly floral and herby overall with flashes of treacle cake and sherry. It's honey-sweet, creamy with a pleasantly syrupy mouthfeel. It goes down (too) easy and remains for a (disappointingly) very brief time with not much to contemplate over.
Blended whiskies are blended whiskies; you won't find explosions of different flavours very often and they're designed to be easy-drinking, middle-of-the-road drinks and Jameson is a particularly enjoyable example of this. Largely inoffensive and quite vanilla (in both senses of the word!) in general, this would be a great introduction for a newcomer to the world of whisk(e)y. I'm always more than happy to have a bottle of Jameson on my shelf when I find I need a break from the more complex, sensation-overload single malts. Worth a try.

Not so good that it matters

Yeah, this and Bush are the main over the counter staples that I'd favour. This maybe edges Bush a little bit... but still falls short of the some of the finest Irish whiskeys (see Black Bush, Redbreast and Green Spot for step up). Jason Breen
