Irish Whiskey, Irish Pale Ale-Seasoned Barrels
Since we swapped stout beer barrels with our friends at Franciscan Well Brewery in 2013 to create the Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition, we couldn’t wait to try a new beer mate with our casks. Our whiskey makers down in our Midleton Distillery have stuck their toes in the water (don’t worry that’s just figurative) once again to create Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition – blended Irish whiskey finished in craft Irish Pale Ale-seasoned barrels.
In 1780, John Jameson established a way of making Irish whiskey that we’ve been proudly sticking to ever since.
As you can imagine, producing a blended Irish whiskey that has been enjoyed for over two centuries, takes a lot. But don’t worry, we’ve distilled over 200 years of courage, craft and a collective appreciation for taste, into one short account. So here’s the secret behind our signature smoothness – our process and our people.
Nose: Floral, herbal hops, grapefruit citrus notes with subtle orchard fruits, complemented by wood shavings and a little nuttiness.
Taste: Hops and light citrus with sweet herbal notes and delicate spicy tones.
Finish: The lingering fresh fruit and hops give way to grains of barley and a signature smooth finish.
