Jameson has partnered with Irish micro-brewer Franciscan Well to create its first beer-finished whiskey, Jameson Caskmates. The result is truly unique. Jameson Caskmates retains the signature triple distilled smoothness of Jameson Original, but finishing it in stout-seasoned casks brings additional rich flavours of coffee, butterscotch and cocoa.
Nose: The initial aroma of freshly mown hay is complemented by a crisp orchard fruit character, green apples and pears along with a twist of lime zest. Taste: As expected, there is the initial sweet mouth coating typical of the Irish Pot Still Whiskey inclusion. Then the effect of the beer cask finish becomes apparent with the subtle touch of hops and cocoa beans. Some marzipan and charred oak add to the complexity. Finish: Long and sweet with milk chocolate and butterscotch.
