Hugely popular Irish blend, renowned for its affinity with ginger ale. The default springboard into the fascinating world of Irish whiskey, Jameson's quality has improved massively in the last 10-15 years and it's one of Jim Murray's favourites, with 95 points in the Whisky Bible 2013.

    A decent whisky, suprisingly smooth on the the way down with little burn, however, I would recommend Bushmills as a preference to this irish whisky as jamesons, though smooth, is slightly bland and has an overpowering vanilla flavour.

    This is a classic, iconic brand of Irish Whiskey that deserves its place in the canon. Well respected in any drinks cabinet and holds a lofty position on the shelf of most bars around the world. Rarely gathers dust and for good reason. You'll have a smooth companion for the evening with an initial subtle vanilla flavour on the perceptive pallet, picking up some fleeting mid term citrus on your first few sups, quickly making way for heat and heat alone, an essential characteristic for the Irish climate, that is; mostly damp and cold. You won't find complexity here. It is fashioned to give warmth and relief from the elements, as you find refuge in an oak framed Irish bar, at the end of a long day working in the green rolling fields under grey skies and unrelenting rain and wind. Remove your cap and find respite here in thought or banter on the happenings of the day. Often accompanied by ginger ale, as they compliment each other well but just as good sitting on its own. For the price this is a staple and was designed so but just like everything in life you get what you pay for. In Irish whiskey terms, this is potatoes not caviar but theirs nothing wrong with potatoes and the potatoes in Ireland are good! May contain traces of the gift of the gab.

    Very mellow, smooth whisky. No harshness or peat that you would associate with Scotch whisky, very easy drinking. Great for unwinding after a long day. This comes from the same brewery that brings us Midelton. Highly recommended.

    The jury is out on this one. Having been a whiskey and bourbon drinker for several years, I finally ventured into the Scotch Whisky world a couple of months ago and was very excited with my first few samplings. I was given a bottle of Jameson and looked forward to my first taste of Irish Whisky tonight. For me, the first sample was pretty plain compared to what I have been drinking. Smooth but plain. I've got the rest of the bottle to go so hopefully it will grow on me as time goes on.

    Very poor whisky. Harsh taste with no complexity of flavour. Better with any Scottish Single Malt.

    I'm not an expert, and do not know all of the technical terms, but I can describe this whiskey as very smooth, no harshness whatsoever. I prefer this at room temperature, on its own.

    Simply my absolute favourite whiskey in that prize range. Good and smooth, good colour and richness in taste. I love it straight, no ice no nothing ! Just as it is. I'm very very surpriced. Thumbs up

    22 years of “professional tasting/sipping/drinking" experience. Never to get drunk, always before meals, always rinsing a mouth with a gulp of water between previous and next cycle. Have always been able to buy between $20 to $200 per litre. Huge variety of scotch, whiskeys and bourbon. Two equal #1 choices : TEACHER'S HIGHLAND CREAM (among any single or blended Scotch Whisky) & JAMESON (among any single or Blended Irish Whiskey ) No more experiments. Cheers

    I've been drinking whisky (scotch, Irish, Tennessee, bourbon) for 30 years and plain, old Jameson is still my everyday drink. This isn't an entry level Irish; it's a goddamn good whisky in its own right. Sure, there are better whiskys in the world but dollar for dollar, strait or mixed, Jameson is one of the best.

    Not a bad drink at all. I prefer this one straight with a cube of ice. For the money you cant go wrong with this one.

    Much improved of late but still fairly standard. Go for the 12 YO (if you can find it).

    Just picked up a pint bottle and wishing I had sprung for the litre. Incredibly smooth on the rocks! Wonderful taste yet not overpowering by any means, and the alcohol is surprisingly muted. This is my new go-to whiskey variety.

    5* for value. Great for mixing, good enough to drink by itself.
