Jameson "Black Barrel" Irish Whiskey (1L)

SKU #1151221 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 The former Bourbon barrels used to mature this whiskey were 'charred and double charred,' the producer says, to coax more from the barrel wood. Look for an almost piña colada-like effect: coconut and tropical fruit aromas, and a rich, honey-soaked palate that shows caramelized pineapple and dried apricot. *Best Buy* (KN)  (3/2019)

91 points Whisky Advocate

 Sumptuously rich and intense whiskey emerges from these double-charred casks; a seduction of butterscotch, treacle, toasted nuts, scorched coconut, raisin, and vanilla essence. Secure in its deep-centered sweetness, it revels in caramelized sugar, dark vanilla, pecan nut slice, crème brûlée, peppery spice, and fleshy fruits gloomily submerged in sticky, umber syrups. Memorable for its long, satisfying, toasted aftertaste, heavy on the vanilla and raisins. (JM, Summer 2018)

K&L Notes

A fantastic expression of Jameson using older whiskies and a higher percentage of pot-distilled spirit finished in recharred bourbon casks. It has the suppleness and the ease you love of Midleton whiskey, but with an extra bolster of richness on the back end. I like this more than Redbreast 12 and it's a liter bottle for a few bucks less. There are 750ml bottles available as well, but who wants the standard size when you can get the LITER!
