Rich and full on the nose, developing into the succulent sweetness of exotic fruits like nectarines, apricot and papaya. The special fruity sweetness from the grain is consistent, while the waves of vanilla, toasted wood and spices roll through from the pot still whiskey and flame charred barrels. The finish is incredibly long with fruit and wood spices lingering in perfect proportion, delivering an extremely rich and luxurious taste experience.
Background: The Jameson Masters have carefully selected a high proportion of single Irish pot still whiskey and a rare small batch grain whiskey, all matured in flame-charred bourbon barrels and toasted sherry casks to create Jameson Select Reserve. The trademark Jameson notes of toasted wood and spice develop are present. The pot still whiskey is matured in the dark, aromatic warehouses of Jameson's single distillery. The rare, sweet grain whiskey, that's not found in any other Jameson Whiskey, is triple distilled in small batch quantities on just one occasion each year.
