Jameson Black Barrel Bottling Note

AKA Small Batch - a super release from Jameson, with a high proportion of Irish pot still whiskey as well as small batch grain. The result is an increased body and level of richness when compared to the core expression. It's aged in double charred first fill bourbon casks (black barrels). Well worth a look...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Rich and fruity with notes of tropical fruits, coconut, nectarines in yoghurt, guava and a thick core of sweet cereals.

Palate: Thick and full on the palate, with an intense, unctuous creaminess, alongside dates, walnuts and peels. Good peach and coconut notes, and a little cinnamon.

Finish: Long finish, and very fruity with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg and hints of potpourri.

User Reviews of the Jameson Black Barrel


Very smooth. Sweet. Lots of toffee creaminess

4th July 2016


I'm usually a Scotch whisky drinker and prefer the peaty, smoky malts. Saw this in the shop, thought I'd try it but didn't have too high expectations for the price. I was wrong. So smooth and delicious I could drink it all day!

The lord !!!

Coconut !!!! absolute whiskey nothing else exist ....

Affordable indulgence

A fine Irish whiskey at a great price. Don't tell John Jameson or his son that I would pay more for this find, shhhhh!

5th May 2016

Class Act

For the special relaxed occasions. Smooth, sublime, classy.

1st May 2016

Very flavorful

I didn't expect much from this. My mistake. I treated Jameson like Jack Daniels in my mind thinking such a popular house wouldn't put too much effort into their variations. Nope. Full body. Smooth. Highly recommended at its price point.

Inspid when compared to the original

I've had a fair few Jameson's now and can only say there is no better Jameson than the original. This lacks the rich flavour. The original is far better

16th March 2016

No better Whiskey at this price point

Outstanding for a whiskey at this price point. Full bodied, lovely color and warm finish. Very drinkable

nice "everyday gamer"

Good whisky for the price.
Not gonna rate it since it is meaningless (giving 5 stars for a cheap no-age-statement whiskey leaves little room for all the, much better, whisky's out there...).
The smell translates identically to the palate and gives associations to green apples and hints of toffee/caramel. Slight oak spices at the finish, which is short-to-medium length, whereafter the taste disappears completely.
Having said that; I do like it!

This whisky is something which one should try. Smooth

5th July 2015

A must have in any collection

This is my go to whiskey. Its just so smooth and stuffed full of flavours.
Beautiful toffee nose. On drinking its very fruity, definate apple and some like, with softer tastes of berries.
Finishes with a slight citrus sharpness but a lot of smooth caramel.

Its just supremely drinkable. If you like whiskey that takes the skin off the inside of your mouth, this is not for you, if you like a smoother whiskey with a lot of depth that belies its price and age, then this is a must.

Beautiful - so many flavours that all balance perfectly

Found this after wanting a bottle of Green Spot but my other half not liking it. Purchased on recommendation.

It reminds me of the jameson 18 a little, but a little more delicate.

Nose: Slight toffee/creamy smell (i assume from the burbon casks) but also a citrus element there.

Taste: Its beautifully smooth, a slight hint of apple, but also a slight creaminess, that smooths the whole experience out. some very light flavours of spices like cinamon in there also. Lime comes out clearly.

Finish: Has a little bite in the finish with more of that toffee creaminess.

Flavours really come out with quite literally "a drop" of water added to the measure.

This is worlds apart from the standard Jameson you get in most pubs, like drinking water from a dirty puddle vs a bottle of Evian. Highly recommended.

Wonderful nose, incredibly smooth, excellent finish.

8th March 2015

Must Try

I bought a bottle of this whiskey for xmas, it's almost all gone its really good. If you like jamesons try a bottle of this. Rich smooth not harsh at all big flavour of fruit really good.

ohconsult - an Ohio Irishman

Jameson Blended is my whiskey of choice. Always smooth and never harsh. Jameson Select Reserve takes excellence to a new level. So fragrant, so pleasing to the palate. There is no equal.

A Little Too Thin And Fruity For Me

Not a bad drink at all but not exactly to my own tastes. Tasting notes for me were apple, green grapes, and custard. Very floral nose as well. Not as rich as I had hoped and a touch bitter on the finish.

Mr liphaswa

Very nice

10th August 2014


Rich and smooth taste. Better than regular Jameson

1st July 2014

Dangerously drinkable

I got this as a Christmas present and managed to resist opening it for months, but now the level of the bottle is going down at an alarming rate. This is excellently drinkable whiskey.

19th May 2014

покрепче будет!

очень угольный , острый и ванилиьный. заткнет за собой обычный и всех собратьев младших

2nd May 2014

Oriental style

While the taste is destinctive, it is not noble. It is spicy, some fruits but it doesn't taste rich. It seems that there are some taste improovements bein made to it and very weak real whiskey notes. While not being fan of Irish I was disappionted

9th April 2014


thought this was delightful. can't believe I saw a review adding water. great taste with a nice smooth finish.

29th March 2014

Mind Blown

Best substance I have ever had the pleasure of consuming. I've never enjoy a drink more!

21st March 2014


My wife bought me a bottle on a recent trip to Ireland and wow what a pleasant surprise!!! A great tasting whiskey with lasting flavor !! Fantastic!!!

1st March 2014

Fabulous Jameson

This is a very good effort from Jameson. Nobody seems to know exactly what it is, and I expect Jameson want to keep their small grain pot still methods to themselves. There is a lot of fine malted barley and rich creamy flavours.It's an absolute cracker and in a different league to their basic product. Highly recommended

25th February 2014

Very good!

I've never been a fan of Jameson and I got a bottle of select reserve as a gift. WOW! Its really good! Delicious flavours and very easy to drink. Really well priced. This might become my new "every day" dram.

17th February 2014


amazing. takes regular jamason to the cleaners!

23rd January 2014

Too sweet

Too much vanilla sweetness drowning out the nice cereal elements for me

1st January 2014

West of Ireland Whiskey drinker

An absolute gem and in my humble estimation it more than compares favorably with the best of the Irish Single Malts.

13th July 2013

What a difference

The first time I had Jameson it was Special Reserve and I Loved it and it spoiled me I can't drink regular Jameson

16th June 2013

Select Reserve Small Batch

Really different from regular Jameson. Plesantly surprised

Brummie terry

A Christmas present from my son and daughter,I drink it two parts whiskey one part water,a delightful drink

"Small Batch"

Hi, just wanted to clarify. The key defining element behind this whiskey is actually its use of a rare grain whiskey component which is not seen in any other expression of the Jameson family - any more questions check out or just reply here, thanks!

20th October 2012

Info on whiskey

This is actually a blend made of 75% 12yo pot still whiskey with about 1/5 of that coming from sherry casks, the rest is grain. Its very nice though, well worth a go for something a bit different.

26th February 2012

Jameson select reserve

Excllent whiskey. A quality drink

14th January 2012


Are you sure it's a pot still whiskey?
