    For it’s price it is amazing. I love the fruitiness on its own. Perfect also with Ginger Ale and ice. Proof you don’t need to break the bank to appreciate good consistent whisky

    This is my daily drink. I actually prefer it on the rocks as I like flavor more than heat, but I'm not shy of it neat. Reliable, affordable, sweet and easy, this just feels like an old friend.

    Not stellar, but not bad. Normally a scotch or craft Bourbon drinker, i decided to try some Jameson. Its a very "uniform" whiskey, not complex, and the flavor profile is "unidirectional." It tastes fine, and is pretty smooth, and good to drink straight. Average rating, not at all unpalletable though. Its whiskey without soul.

    Really tasty and very smooth. I understand this has been a consistent winner in Jim Murray's list of best whiskies.

    Deliciously clean, smooth sipping whiskey. No harsh edges. Puts American Whiskeys and Bourbons to shame. Try it, and you will like it. I love to sip it neat.

    A very popular whiskey and my friends and family really enjoy it, for me it's quite harsh, a great whiskey for mixers or cocktails, I would not advise on the rocks or straight

    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
