The latest expression of Jameson is the Black Barrel Proof, bottled in limited quantities at 50%.
Jameson Black Barrel Proof is made from pot still and grain whiskey matured in a combination of American oak, sherry casks and double charred ex-bourbon barrels to give an even deeper flavour experience. Uniquely, this expression will be bottled at 50% ABV and without chill filtration. The result is a rich, smooth expression that showcases the benefit that the tradition of barrel charring can add to the world’s favourite Irish whiskey.
Here are the official Jameson Black Barrel Proof tasting notes as provided by O’Gorman.
- Nose: Butterscotch sweetness and creamy, toffee, fudge aroma.
- Taste: Rich smooth taste with a deep intensity and dialled up spicy notes, complemented by vanilla sweetness.
- Finish: Smooth and rich finish with a hint of vanilla lingering on the palate.
