A special pot still whiskey-heavy version of Jameson. Black Barrel has lots of first-fill bourbon and sherry casks in the mix, giving it a much richer flavour than regular Jameson, with a strong sherried note.Tasting Notes (2)
- Dried Fruit
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Soft barrel-char aromas, along with sweet barley and cereal.
Very soft and smooth. Subtle spiciness and barrel char comes through, along with fresh fruitiness.
Smooth and balanced.
Tasting Notes by Dominic Roskrow for Whisky Advocate
Bright sparks, these Jameson guys. This takes all the worldwide quality and balance of the standard bottle and adds a large dollop of pot still whiskey, providing plummy, rich fruits to the mix. They may have also upped the effects of oak, too, so there's an extra depth to the whiskey. Fans of the brand will love it, and pot still whiskey fans will appreciate an affordable full-flavoured blend.

Bought this on the basis that it had many good reviews. I am an experienced whisky drinker and have a large collection and quite honestly this whisky is very poor. I don’t know if I had a bad batch but basically it was thin, had no depth of flavour and had a bitter aftertaste. Very disappointing after reading such glowing reviews.
This is not Redbreast , yellow spot or Dunnville PX but for the price this is very hard to beat. I have to admit I have been a bit of a whiskey snob and purposely avoided Jameson until A friend recently brought over a bottle of the black barrel. I have to say I am very impressed. Lovey Carmel on the nose. Creamy vanilla on the palate. The only issue for me is a wee bit of bitterness on the finish. Easily rectified with a cube of ice or two (which I almost never do). This will become a staple in my bar as of today. Magic in a glass on a budget.
Tried this whiskey and I think it's probably the best on the market right now at this price point.
Posh bourbon, it's ok but find it way underwhelming for the price. Recently I tried the stout caskmates and think it's much better bottling than this.
