Jameson Black Barrel Irish Whiskey 1L
Like a liquid (if boozy) apple pie, this blended whiskey offers bold, rich aromatics, with lots of dried and stewed fruit flavors and butterscotch. The drawn-out finish incorporates touches of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and even a mouthwatering sprinkle of salt.
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!
