To say that Jameson Irish Whiskey is a great blend, is a bit of an understatement. And although in recent years it has transcended the Irish whiskey category and simultaneously spurred billions of dollars in invest in the country and category itself, at the end of the day it’s about THE WHISKEY. And guess what…it’s fantastic. Portions of single pot still and sherry finishing meld seamlessly with fine light and sweet Irish grain. Soft, fruity, grassy, with a depth, roundness, and “liquid gold” drinkability that’s really not matched among the great world blends. Chivas, Dewars, Johnnie Black, Crown Royal, Seagram’s VO Gold, these are all great, historic, magnificently drinkable whiskies, but if I’m sitting in a strange hotel bar with limited options and 20 minutes to kill…give me a JAMO all day long!
