Old Jameson Distillery, Bow Street, Smithfield, Dublin, Co. Dublin, Republic of Ireland
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Layered elements of soft honey and subtle oak criss-crossing the crisp pot-still.
Palate: Truly magnificent honey-barley notes.
Finish: Silky and subtle, an essay in bittersweet balance with the final, drier, bitter notes reminding you of some decent age.
Comment: No two vattings are ever the same. However this is, astonishingly high quality every time. The most complex Irish of them all; a blender triumph.

Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Light. Fresh wood. Vanilla. Distinctly buttery.
Palate: Creamy. Vanilla. Fresh apple. Honey.
Finish: Lightly toasty. Fresh-cut cedar.
Comment: There is some virgin oak in this one, along with bourbon casks. Bonus points for trying something new, but would have expected more interesting results. I find it a bit light tasting. Try it with fresh brown bread and Dublin Bay prawns.
