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

A step into a time past when someone dared create something new

N: There is a light fresh peppermint with a grassy twinge.
P: Juicy mouthfeel initially that explodes with wood spice before releasing mild sherry into the mix.
A: The after feels like you have been brought into the barrel the whiskey came from and whipped about through the flavours that inform the dram.

Best Value Whiskey in an Irish Pub... Enjoy

Originally a 10 year old whiskey, ("Not a drop is sold, till it's 10 years old"), Crested 10 became plain old Crested in the 70s (I think) due to the dwindling stocks of aged whiskey. The industry went through a tough time in the 50s/60s. The deal was the blenders could maintain the style of Crested with younger whiskies. (the price did not go down). There is no age statement on Crested but the whiskey is supposedly older than Jameson and contains more sherry (expensive) than Jameson. IDL have pushed this whisky up the premium latter (cork closure where once there was a screw cap!). It is the first Jameson bottling (1963) and it is a fabulous whiskey. It is beginning to become more expensive but when it was at a small premium to Jameson - it was far better value. My father drank it with a lot of water (and loved it). I drink it neat or with a little "release". Pairing it with a pint of Guinness is a delicious pleasure. I am not sure how you could rate this as inferior to Jameson but that is the great thing about taste - it is subjective!

Great whiskey for the price

The nose is barley sugar, caramel, vanilla ice cream and apple, very friendly and pleasant.
Has a nice mouth feel, slightly thicker than standard Jameson, the sherry element comes to the fore, with a nice spice tingle alongside a little creaminess and some bready malt. A very easy drinker.
The finish is quite long for a 40% ABV whiskey, deep oak, honey and old school toffee bars.
A winner for the money, but still just prefer the Caskmates Stout version.

not worth

Very disappointed with this one. I grew up on standard jameson, to me still the best basic choice whiskey out there. Also love black barrel, however, Crested felt like an inferior, more alcohol-y tasting version of standard jameson which is crazy to me considering it's a good bit more expensive. It also has quite an unpleasant lingering aftertaste.
If you're shopping in this price range stick to standard jameson or go for black barrel is my best advice.

Excellently delicious

Deliciously smooth taste that's affordable and rewarding.. Silky texture with a crisp smooth finish.. One of the best I've tried from the Irish island..
