Jameson Caskmates Bottling Note

Jameson Caskmates is an intriguing release. Having sent some of their casks to the local craft stout brewers at Franciscan Well, the casks were returned to Midleton where they were subsequently used to give a stout finish to Jameson!

We tasted it before it was available in the UK when we visited Cork just before St. Patrick's Day 2015, and we know that some of the fine folk at Irish Distillers were worried that it may be seen as a bit of a gimmick. Perhaps to an extent it is, but more importantly, it works - a worthwhile experiment that's produced a unique and interesting Irish whiskey.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: There's still cut grass and some fruit alongside delicious oily pot still character, but things are different here too. Is it sweeter? A different sweetness perhaps, more wood spice plus chocolate liqueur. A shift of emphasis.

Palate: Orchard fruits, great mouthfeel but the vanilla cream is less prominent, it's more fragrant (hoppy?) and floral on the palate with a touch of bitterness.

Finish: Again familiar, but different, that different complexion of spice with chocolate from the nose lingers briefly.

Overall: An interesting twist on an old favourite, and a great gift for Irish whiskey and stout fans alike!

My new sipper if it hangs around long enough.

I can say that in 30+ yrs of drinking whisk(e)y I've finished more bottles of Jameson whisky than any other brand. When this bottling came out I was a little skeptical as to how good it would be. Well eventually I caved in through curiosity and purchased a bottle and I'm pleased that I did. I love the citrus profile of Jamesons but this pairing proves how good the basic spirit is as it totally changed in a great way. I will defo be purchasing more, 5*.

Drunk review

The Budweiser of whiskey. Bland no finish . Blackbush, Yellowspot, redbreast. Nuff said (yes I had several whiskeys before writing this)

Doesn't work - more of a gimmick

In my opinion, they were right to be concerned about this being a "gimmick", rather than an attempt to make a great whiskey. Where Glenfiddich have succeeded (with their "IPA" release), Jameson have completely failed. The flavour combination just doesn't work for me - it adds almost a bitterness to the whiskey which clashes with the signature Jameson smoothness. Great marketing idea, poor execution

Unique and unique

Fantastic. It smells and taste are delightful. Yes, I'm using the word 'delightful' for a whiskey. The stout notes are detectible, but not overpowering. The finish complements the already wonderful Jameson product.

A fulsom flavour

A lovely bottle of whiskey to which I saw then purchased in Budapest in duty free. I'd buy again.

not for me

I can appriciate this whiskey for what it is, i do like how this whiskey came about, but if your like me and do not like stout, i would advise you stay away, if do do like stout, maybe give it a go.

An Orgy in a Bottle!

This is an orgy of flavors! I picked up a bot from a local duty free, having never bought a Jameson before, I thought it'd be a good gift and would save me giving away a bottle of my single malt scotch collection when required.

So having been on a long detox lasting 3 whole days, my resolve is starting to give hints of fatigue. As I lit a cigar, I got tempted to crack open the Jameson and sneak a try...Its incredibly peaty and smokey and your cant even take a proper whiff. Few attempts later, after my sinuses have been cleared with the intense peat fumes, my long nose is able to find an entire orchard in the glass. Its much too confusing I thought and took a sip to try and break apart the flavors. Complexities continue, but less peaty, a cocktail of fruits, white chocolate and coffee. The taste remains the palette past the short smooth finish.

Its complex, confusing, exciting, above all its mouth watering and you're left longing for another round.

as i expected

creamy, coffee, cocoa, with long finish
wish it has higher ABV

14th September 2017

Dangerously good

Just bought a bottle, going back for a case before it sells out. If you like your whisk(e)y smooth, rich, a little sweet, with strong notes of chocolate, aniseed, raises and plums, don't hesitate, buy it now before it's too late. I hope this becomes a regular member of the Jameson stable. Unbelievably good value.

Everything I was lead to believe

Just opened a bottle tonight and was very pleased to find that it lives up to the hype. A most pleasant expression of the brand, no question, it's a keeper and will always have a place on my shelf!

Worth a try

In picked up a bottle of the stout edition 2 days ago, and wished I picked up a few more. For the price, this is absolutely beautiful and leaves you wanting glass after glass. In would highly recommend this offering. You won't be disappointed.
