Jameson Original Irish Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Jameson Original Irish Whiskey

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 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.Jameson Original Irish Whiskey is a blend of pot still and fine grain whiskeys that have been aged for a minimum of 4 years. The whiskey is aged in a combination of ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks to add spicy and sweet notes.Jameson Original Irish Whiskey is slightly floral on the nose with hints of spicy sweetness, which leads to a palate of spicy caramel notes combined with subtle notes of vanilla and almonds. The finish is smooth with notes of sherry and sweet fruit.Pick up a bottle today!
