The latest permanent addition to the Jameson brand family that undoubtedly has spearheaded the resurgence of Irish whiskey worldwide and has now become one of the world’s most recognisable brands.
Skilfully created under the watchful eye of Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman, Jameson Single Pot Still is crafted from a mashbill of malted and unmalted barley before being triple distilled for a rich, unmistakable taste experience. The new Jameson Single Pot Still is then matured in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, while also introducing the subtle flavour contribution of three different types of Virgin oak casks: American, European, and Irish. The finished result is a complex, spicy, and smooth symphony of flavours and aromas. The ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks bring elements of sweetness in the form of dried fruits, notes of vanilla and fudge, that Jameson fans the world over will know and love. The addition of the three virgin oak cask types provides a hint of toasted oak and elevated woodland spices. This subtle addition allows the Jameson Single Pot Still to express its traditional spiciness while elevating the overall taste and flavour in this modern classic.
Nose: Opens with wood-driven spices of cinnamon and nutmeg intertwined with rich toasted oak, sweet honeycomb, and salted caramel. Zesty fruit notes linger in the background along with dairy fudge, butterscotch, and vanilla while the pot still spices continue to build over time, complementing the earthy woodland notes and ripe fruits.
Palate: Rich dark chocolate, spicy toffee, and ground cinnamon with hints of freshly grated ginger and touches of orange peel. The combination of fresh and seasoned oak adds intricate and layered sweet and smoked-wood tones with delicate tannins, working in balance with the pot still’s silky texture.
Finish: The delicate fruits slowly fade, leaving the spices and oak to linger until the very end.
