Also known as the family pack, this gift set offers a taste of three different core Jameson expressions.
The smaller 200ml bottlings included are the stout edition of the popular cask finish series, ‘Caskmates’, the Black Barrel, and the classic Jameson’s standard release.
The Caskmates bottling sees Jameson’s famous triple distilled Irish whiskey finished for a time in stout barrels from craft Irish brewery, Franciscan Well. The result is a fully flavoured dram, rich in notes of dark oak, plums, espresso, dark chocolate and vanilla cream.
The Black Barrel is a really high quality whiskey, made with a large quantity of pot-still and small batch grain distillate, and enjoying a maturation in double charred (black) first fill Bourbon barrels. A well bodied and rich dram, which serves up huge flavours of coconut, stone fruit, caramel, cinnamon, cream and grassy cereals.
Finally we have the bottling that made the Jameson Name. Considered by many to be the face of Irish whiskey, this Midleton-produced dram remains one of the strongest standard bottlings on the market. Packed with grassy Irish character, sweet cereals, peppery spice and vanilla, this is always a solid option.
The gift set is very nicely presented, in a kind of old-fashioned milk crate. Would make the perfect gift for any fan of Irish whiskies.
too expensive, but great idea
