Description and review by Daniel & Rex in the Whisk(e)y Vault
This is the first in a limited Edition range called Caskmates, with Jameson whiskey has been finished in casks which previously held Stout. This finishing has added rich flavour’s to the smooth gold nectar with flavours of coffee, cocoa and gentle hopes.
Jameson Caskmates is a whiskey born of collaboration; a product of two passions coming together, and a shared mutual respect for craft and experimentation.
Jameson Caskmates retains the signature triple distilled smoothness of Jameson Original, but finishing it in stout-seasoned casks brings additional rich flavours of coffee, butterscotch and cocoa.
Our whiskey masters carry on the true spirit of John Jameson and Sine Metu. Fearing a bit less and being open to new ideas (via a chance meeting in a pub), they experimented with finishing our prized whiskey in stout-seasoned barrels. The result is truly unique.
