    Unlike lots of reviews I do not proclaim to distinguish every taste known to man. Just know a good thing when I taste it!!

    Not a champion drinker buy I've had a few. It's great for the price but still cheap whiskey. Lot of burn, almost like cinnamon and numbs my mouth. Might give you jitters but taste isn't awful. Mixes well, even with chocolate milk. Old favorite. Just don't expect it to the best whiskey on earth.

    Jameson is one of those drinks that doesn't do anything wrong but I just can't get into. The nose is a classic, with a lot of nuttiness and grass coming through. The palate follows the grass on the nose with some toast and a bit of butter. The finish is short, VERY short. As in barely there. This whiskey is smooth to the point where it might actually be its biggest weak ness. This drink doesn't really fail in any way but it doesn't exceed any expectations either. Which is what keeps it near the bottom of my wishlist at all times. Its just a bit boring. Sure its a great price but it's just not all that great an experience to me.

    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.
