Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Jameson 12 Year Old Special Reserve, with its robust full bodied flavour, is a warm welcoming handshake into the Reserves whiskey family. Originally known as '1780' after the year of foundation of the Jameson distillery in Dublin's Bow Street, it was renamed in 2002 to reflect its minimum 12 years of maturing in bourbon and most delectably in oloroso sherry casks.

    With its infusion of pot still with sherry casks, these brush strokes of distilling artistry make it the best known and most popular aged Jameson Reserve for any discerning palate.

    Jameson 12 Year Old Special Reserve is a whiskey of great character with complex flavours of toasted wood, spice and sherry that are superbly mellowed. Its exquisite taste celebrates the enduring heritage of great Jameson whiskeys which began in 1780.

    A friend brought me a bottle of this back from a trip to London last summer. Since I am a regular drinker of std. Jameson, I was taken aback by this excellent blend. The whiskey is slightly darker than std. Jameson and the palate is brighter with a delicious aftertaste lingering for quite some time.

    Excellent, excellent, excellent. A bit more dry Sherry notes come through, this is standard Jameson amplified.

    Great Irish blend. Very smooth, with lots of sherry and a little cocoa and spice on the finish. Far superior to the standard Jameson. Well worth the price.

    a decent cheap whiskey - only 3£ more for this than the "normal" jamesonA smooth taste and easy on the lips, not a long aftertaste. a lot of different tastes. contrary to the single malt, it has no smokey flavor because of the no smoke giving manufacturing.good at price
