Tasting: Round and smooth with sweet, spicy, toasted wood notes. Dry yet smooth finish with a longering crispness from the pot still.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - (Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Amber color, with pretty orange core highlights. Nose is alive with toasted malt, dry breakfast cereal, light baking spice (clove) elements that are harmonious and light. Taste mirrors the bouquet, especially in the cereal replication. Toasty, oaky, entirely pleasing. (Mar 2015)
Produced at the Midleton Distillery, Jameson is Ireland's quintessential Irish blend, a classic. Jim Murray even awarded it an incredible 95 points!
The nose is full and floral with a smooth sweetness. Marmalade and fudge, Madeira and a little cut grass note.
The palate is thick and of good body with notes of orchard fruits, both fresh and cooked with a little vanilla cream.
The finish is of medium-length with spice and honey.
|Welcome to the home of traditional Irish whiskey. The Kilbeggan Distillery is the oldest licensed distillery in Ireland, retaining its license to distill whiskey on the same site and in the same buildings for over 256 years.
The distillery is situated on the banks of the River Brosna, with plenty of access to the three natural ingredients needed for whiskey distillation – water, grain and turf. In fact, we still use the water from River Brosna to make our whiskey today.
Dating back to 1757 a visit today lets you discover real artisanal Irish whiskey distilling at its finest. See for yourself the traditional method of mashing in oak mash tuns, fermenting in Oregon pine vats, and the new Kilbeggan malt spirit flowing from the 180 year old pot still.
