Jameson - CaskmatesLong Finish
Caskmates is a partnership with Irish craft brewer Franciscan Wells, where the brewers age Jameson Original in their used stout barrels.
Nose: The initial aroma of freshly mown Hay is complimented by a crisp orchard fruit character, green apples and pears along with a twist of lime zest. Mild pot still spices appear, deepening from green tea to hazelnut and milk chocolate.
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.
