Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition - Spirits Worth Raising

Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition

Youd be hard-pressed to find a more iconic name in the Irish whiskey world than "Jameson." The Jameson tradition dates all the way back to 1740, when John Jameson was born into a family whose motto, "Sine Metu" ("Without Fear"), was earned through the familys courage in fighting pirates on the high seas during the 1500s.John Jameson himself was a living embodiment of Sine Metu, and his ancestors bravery inspired in John a boldness that led him not only to open his own distillery in the latter 18th century, but also to pioneer the technique of triple-distilling whiskey now the gold standard in the Irish whiskey industry. John Jameson lived to be 83 an impressive feat for someone born in the 18th century and his descendants John II, John III and John IV all honored his legacy by leading the distillery well into the 20th century.Jameson Irish Whiskey is crafted from a mash of malted and unmalted barley Product hidden area. Jameson Caskmates Irish Whiskey Stout Edition. This limited edition bottling from Jameson is finished in stout-seasoned oak barrels from Franciscan Well, a craft Irish brewery.that is triple-distilled just as it was by John Jameson himself centuries ago through three separate copper-pot stills: a wash still, a feint still and, finally, a spirit still. The mash itself is made using barley, maize and pure Irish water, further adding to the unique character of the whiskey.As an experiment, Jameson recently sent several of its used casks to Franciscan Well, a craft Irish brewery, for use in aging the brewerys lagers, ales, stouts and wheat beers. Franciscan Well is built on an old monastery which dates back to 1219, and much like the Jameson Distillery, Franciscan Well combines modern production techniques with rich, Irish tradition. Once the brewery is finished with the casks (the beers are typically aged for two to six months), Jameson has them sent back to the distillery, where the stout casks are used, once again, to finish Jameson Caskmates Irish Whiskey.As a result of this full-circle finishing process, Jameson Caskmates Irish Whiskey has a hearty aroma of coffee, cocoa and fresh barley, which leads to a palate filled with honey, vanilla cream and a slight hop flavor. The finish is rich and smooth, with pronounced notes of toffee, caramel and bitter chocolate.Jameson Caskmates Irish Whiskey represents a truly innovative marriage of the ever-growing whiskey and beer trends.Pick up a bottle today!
