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.

    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.

    Not bad, but I confess that Bushmills is by far the better choice between the two titans of Irish whiskey. Still, few whiskies out there as this smooth. This is dangerously smooth. On the nose, I detect vanilla, light wood, toasted nuts. Quite understated to me. Taste is pretty mellow, slightly sweet, muted and abrupt finish though. It''s great, especially for newbies to the world of whisk(e)y like myself, but I definitely prefer the Bushmills.

    A very good irish blend. The spicy pot still character is really showing it's best traits. On the other hand, little bit too sweet. The overall complexity would greatly benefit if this blend would be at least 43 % and less sweet grain whisky used in composition. Sweetness is almost always the Achilles heel in most irish and scottish blends. Okay, this IS a very good blend.

    Absolutely love Jameson's one of my favourite whiskeys currently. It is very easy to drink, lovely in the mouth, very flavourful, clean and crisp. And the low price and high availability makes it all the better. Amazing.

  • Paddy, Edinburgh 20 January 2014

    Not bad but I remember this being better a few years ago, despite that it's still worth the money but if you want a Irish blend with a little more complexity go for Tullamore DEW.

    A highly enjoyable and affordable whiskey, very smooth and easygoing. One of my all time favourite everyday bottles. If you like this I would seriously recommend trading up and trying the excellent Jameson Select Reseve Small Batch.

  • Grant Melville, Falkirk 21 March 2013

    This, and I apologise to the reviewer before me, is the only whisk(e)y I've grown to enjoy with a spot of water. I think a drop of water really stretches out the rich, fruity, berry notes and the sublime milk chocolate which follows it, and takes the fire from the pot still punch. On its own, it's superb. Slightly diluted, it's superb and manageable.

    Irish whiskey (which should be taken NEAT)is the best in the world - after all, we invented it! Thanks to the proliferation of hundreds of Irish "whiskies" in the late nineteenth / early twentieth century which were nothing short of moonshine rubbish, we acquired a justifiably bad reputation; the Scotch jumped in to fill the gap. These days the discerning imbiber is discovering where the worlds best whiskey comes from...

    I just opened my first bottle of Irish whiskey, and I must say it was a pleasant surprise. I have been looking for a good stock whiskey, and i think I just found it. Not to mention the neat price tag!

  • Old Father Moloney 23 December 2012

    Jameson is THE chaser whiskey. Any decent real ale pint with a regular glass of Jameson does the trick and the trick is to progressively slow down the beer and keep the whiskey at @double measure constantly. If you can afford to, never buy a round of beers without chasers. The look of the table alone makes it worth it. For best results add a log fire.

    I have been drinking this for many years and there is no question that it has improved recently (2012 batch is v. good). If you are on a budget or need a staple whiskey for the cupboard when you require a whiskey & coke then look no further. Gateway whiskey of choice to the Irish style.

    The quality of any whisk(e)y depends for the most part on the quality of the casks used to mature it in. At Midleton Distillery - the home of Jameson-, they only use casks of high quality. As an experienced Jameson drinker I can taste this. This whiskey is consistently good from bottle to bottle.
