Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: The raisiny, deftly honeyed brittle pot still eventually dominates the spice. Brooding stuff.
Palate: Shafts of honey pierce the oaky, barley-rich intensity. Excellent bittersweet balance, but tending on the sweetish side.
Finish: Docked marks for a slight briefness of finish. Hints of cocoa towards the end.
Comment: Sensational stuff of a style universally unique to Irish whiskey, the Midleton distillery in particular. A classic.

Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fresh sweat. A shower with Badedas. Arousingly aromatic. Perfume. Rose water.
Palate: Creamy. Turkish delight.
Finish: Very emphatic tea character.
Comment: Those oily aromatics are quite a shock at first. Shows just how different a true 'Irish' character was 15 years ago, or does Jameson benefit greatly from age?
