Blended Irish Whiskey - 2013
San Francisco World Spirits Competition
Insider knowledge: Jameson 18 Year Old Limited Reserve whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from Ireland. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Jameson 18 Year Old Limited Reserve whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
I didn't get apples, it was more of an orange blossom sort of flavour. Nice stuff - impressed me!

What did the last reviewer mean by "Recommend even if it is Irish".Everything about that review screams idiot !

A delicious blend - whilst the nose isn't all that unique or noteworthy; the usual notes of grain, pot-stilled cereal, acorns, apple peels and light spice; the taste is extraordinary: the initial explosion is of ripe apples, gooseberries, with more hints of spice and pepper, then an incredible nuttiness which to me feels a lot like potatoes and leeks, truly superb, this lasts a long time with underlying notes of sweet cereal, apple & pear peels and has a sour mash feeling to it. The finish is long and balanced, continuing these notes but introducing soft vanilla and oak flavours. Recommended, even if it is Irish!
