Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition
A product of curiosity and collaboration, Jameson Caskmates is a special edition new whiskey from Jameson that has been finished in stout seasoned barrels. When the Jameson Master Distiller met the Master Brewer from Franciscan Wells for a drink, a plan was hatched to send a few Jameson casks to their brewery down the road for them to age their craft Irish stout. Once the stout had been bottled, the seasoned barrels were returned to Jameson and were re-filled with Jameson Whiskey. Jameson Caskmates emerged; a whiskey that retains all the smoothness of triple-distilled Jameson Original, albeit singing a different tune. The addition of stout notes including cocoa, coffee and butterscotch means that this is Jameson with a difference. Nose An initial aroma of freshly cut hay is complemented by a crisp orchard fruit character - green apples and pears, with a twist of lime zest. Mild pot still spices appear, deepening from green tea to hazelnut and milk chocolate. Taste The initial sweet mouth coating typical of the Irish pot still inclusion is quickly complemented by the subtle touch of hops and cocoa beans from the beer cask finish. Finish Long and sweet with milk chocolate and butterscotch.
