Jameson Crested

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Jameson Crested to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Jameson Crested Bottling Note

A rebranded version of one Jameson's best kept secrets, the previously confusingly named Crested Ten, which wasn't ten years old and was hard to find outside of Ireland. Having dropped the "Ten", Crested has now been relaunched internationally.

The first Crested release came in 1963, with Jameson beginning to bottle their own whiskey (rather than selling to bonders) and it's known to have a healthy proportion of pot still whiskey as well as a high proportion of Sherry casks used for maturation (bourbon barrels are also used).

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A luscious sweet aroma of maple butter leads with plenty of chalky vanilla and caramelized sugars. Complex Irish pot still fruitiness is present too, with bitter citrus, apple skins and marmalade. Ginger and clove add spice and warmth underneath with a touch of roasted nuts.

Palate: Through creamy vanilla and a malty element, there are helpings of gentle sherried fruit, coconut and honey-toffee sweetness. Apricot and peach melba emerge with a touch of milk chocolate among spiced nuts, peppery mint and prickles of pot still spices.

Finish: In a long finish, there’s warming honeyed sweetness, mild drying oak spice and a hint of sherry-scorched wood.

Overall: The ideal introductory dram, it’s outstanding value for money and utterly delicious in a complex, interesting way.

Jameson Crested Reviews

Crested jameson-A1

A big Jameson fan. Only tried a crested Jameson today after being used of the original Jameson for years. A very smooth sweet taste. Highly recommended

6th July 2020

Quite good

Underrated whiskey. I was not impressed initially, but it grew on me
A decent dram, try it

27th May 2020

Definitely Jamesons 😅

On the nose creamy vanilla, green apple, ginger bread and demara sugar. Smoother on the palate with vanilla, shortbread biscuits, apricot and hazelnut spread. Finishing off with more of that shortbread which turns in to gingerbread and a slight oak wood spice

Up there with the best

A real challenger to the top level Scottish Malts. Smooooth on the pallet and a real joy to drink.

Not the best whisky ive ever had but for a cheap bottle its pretty good. The usual caramel taste of jamesons and by far the smoothest whisky/ whiskey ive ever tasted.

Classic Jameson in transparent bottle and much expensive.

Not too much different against classic Jameson. Mainstream whiskey for pubs.

Crested is Awesome!

Tasted this the first time at the airport in Dublin on my way back to the US. I immediately purchased 2 bottles at the Duty Free and brought them home with me. This is the Best Irish Whiskey I have ever tasted. It literally made me smile. I loved it so much that I brought home a case of Crested when I came home from Winnipeg. AWESOME!

Excellent Irish Whiskey.

Jameson Crested is an outstanding Irish Whiskey, very smooth on the palate.

23rd August 2018

Excellent whiskey great taste

Great taste very easy drinking

19th July 2018

Very smooth and a change from single malts

Normally, I drink only single malts but, now and again, with a bottle of Guinness, I try an Irish whiskey. I've tried this before and enjoyed its smoothness and pleasant spicy finish. Imagine my surprise when I found it reduced to clear in my local Asda for £11 a bottle. I'm not saying how many I managed to snaffle at that price but, strange to say, it tastes even better!

6th April 2018

Love this!

This is my favorite of all the Jameson blends! So smooth. I brought some home form ireland and had a friend bring a bottle to me on a visit. I wish I could find here in the states, there would be no other choice!

14th February 2018

Great, smooth very fine Irish whiskey

Finest Irish Whiskey on the market for the price. No wonder it is sold out!

29th December 2017

Good stuff.

To my taste, the best Jameson

Jameson is my favourite Irish whiskey brand. I have tasted all of ordinary Jameson, Crested and 12-year-old Redbreast and Crested is by far my favourite of them. I particularly like its smoothness when mixed with water and a creaminess and slight sweetness (possibly derived from its ageing in sherry casks?). I found Crested at an excellent price on-line and have ordered a case, just as I would do if buying wine, to have it as my 'house' whiskey.

26th October 2017

Best kept secret

Like the old darker bottle and label better, but it is the same whiskey and the best Irish for the money (heck, tastes better than Midleton. Still call it C10 and always bring bottles back to the states, along with some very good Donegal poteen in a Fanta bottle.

9th October 2017

Best irish whiskey for money

I tasted almost every mainstream irish whiskey and as far this one is the best. It's hard to not enjoy the taste.

30th September 2017

Too Good to Ever Forget

I tasted Crested Ten while in Ireland back in 1996... It was grand.and I have not forgotten... I have consumed a lot of Jameson, Black, Gold 12 year, Middleton etc but still would love to have some of the Crested Ten recommended by Michael Ryan one evening in a pub in central Ireland with my brothers... A hard lot for a Wyoming Cowboy...

6th March 2017

Impossible not to like this whiskey

I've never tried the old version but in my opinion, for the price you will not find a better Irish whiskey. It says it has high pot still volume and you can tell. It's creamy, subtle spices come through and the grain sits perfectly in harmony. I'm a massive fan of this, it's natural to be sceptical of a product that's had confusing branding but there's nothing confusing about the liquid itself. Lovely.

16th October 2016

Halfway Wrong

Some of the classic pot still spice here but not quite the highs of the old crested 10 and some younger spirity notes here as well. This feels younger and thinner than the old crested but still decent everyday drinking, just lacking the well rounded feel of classic Jameson and think i would spend the extra money to get the Redbreast next time for more of that pot still richness. The Whisky Flaneur

27th September 2016

Completely wrong

I don't know what the user above got his hands on, but what I had is identical to the old Crested Ten. I can say that because I'm comparing a sample with a bottle of Crested Ten I bought three years ago (bottled eight years ago) side by side.

24th July 2016

A pale shadow of the original

Far from a simple re-branding as the description suggests, this is an entirely different product, more like cheap corn whiskey. Avoid!
