Jameson is a big deal. Last year sales passed 8+ million barrels in 130 countries. The Jameson journey started in Dublin in 1780, and had grown over the last centuries. Think about that for a moment. When you sip at your Jameson you are sipping at more than 200 years of careful craftsmanship.
That effort and craftsmanship really shine through in this blended whiskey. It is an amazingly drinkable blend that is completely Sip Worthy. I have to be honest, I am a complete snob when it comes to whiskey, but my son and his girlfriend picked up this bottle of Jameson to make Green Tea shots , and I tried it out of curiosity. My neanderthal brain tells me that any whiskey that comes with a twist cap can’t be that good – and at least when it comes to Jameson, it was completely wrong.
I got yelled at to stop drinking the Jameson because they weren’t going to have enough left to make mixed shots. All I can say after drinking a few drams is that making mixed drinks with this Jameson is a sin.
When it comes the collection, even this “base” Jameson is a credit to the brand.
If you want a very affordable, sippable Irish Whiskey you will enjoy this Jameson. It earned every point of its 80/100 and is ultimately very Sip Worthy.
- Amazingly affordable.
