Customer Rating
Jameson Caskmates sees the reuse of old whiskey barrels. Nothing new in that, but in between, they've been used to age stout from Cork's Franciscan Well brewery. This has added notes of cocoa, coffee and butterscotch to this classic Irish whiskey.

    Very pleasant taste. Instantly reminded me of bourbon. It smells great and has a real smooth Jameson taste! I recommend

    I had read and re read all the reviews of Caskmates before I went shopping. From the reviews, I surmised that this had to the whiskey that was a perfect fit for me. I love Jameson's original blend and Black Barrel is my hands down favorite Irish so CM was going to the best of the three. Nope. Not in my opinion anyway. The nose is awesome with chocolate and caramel and the mouth feel is simply amazing. So...why did I feel a bit of a let down? The taste reminded me instantly of a blended scotch. Is it bad? Not by a long shot. In fact I can see why it remains a fan favorite. This whiskey has a distinct personality. My problem was personal preconceived expectations. It isn't Black Barrel, and it wasn't meant to be. I'll not be giving up on this bottle though and I look forward to reading more of your reviews!

    A versatile whiskey if ever there was one! I tried it in a fantastic Lisbon beer bar where each ale was a treat. Their deal was you could buy a full shot of Jameson Caskmates Stout edition for just 1€ with each beer bought. It was perfect side to every beer I tried (and I did my best!) Each beer seemed to bring a new note to the Jameson. It also does a fine job as a standalone whiskey. Certainly now a firm favorite of mine.

    Really surprising. Sampled a little this morning and bought a bottle right away. The concept of this whiskey completely intrigued me. I wasn't at all disappointed. The chocolate, cocoa, buttery, stout and caramel flavors were astounding. Its smoothness amazing. Well done Jameson.

    Definitely something that could get you into trouble. This is one of the finest whiskeys I have tasted. On par with the big boys. In Houston it hovers around 30 bucks, would happily pay twice that much. A mighty fine creation.

    This has been an extremely pleasant awakening. A smooth dark chocolate (I think)flavour, roasted yet rounded finish and a satisfying price.A truly brilliant whiskey, perfect for chasing that mild, porter or stout.

    This is nice Irish. There is more complexity in this blend of malts due to being finished in beer casks. I like it better the regular Jameson. Sweet brown sugar, apple, peat, and a long sweet/spicy finish. Nice whiskey.

    I have tried many whiskeys and even the Jameson 18 yr. I have been a fan of Jameson for some time now and this has sealed the deal for me. This one is truly amazing. I love my stout beers as much as my whiskey so this was a match in heaven.

    Baked apples and pears, chocolate, mild warming spice, oaky finish. Just what the doctor ordered after a long day at work, lovely beside a roaring fire with the rain pelting down outside. Go get some, you won't be dissappointed and super value.

    I had trouble picking a favourite whiskey before this, but this is amazing and so different to others. The sweet chocolate finish is gorgeous.

    Disappointment, maybe the first Jameson in my books. There is nothing wrong with experiments with different kind of cask types, but Jameson is playing safe here. And result is a very mediocre whiskey. I'm worried about that flood of caramel: we have already seen that in latest regular Jameson bottlings. Where is the pot still character the Jameson is so famed of ?? Why don't put together a pure/single pot still version? THAT would be something.

    Its been 1 year since I discovered it. I am up to approx. 20 bottles at this point. I have given some as gifts, but mostly for myself. Smooth is not the word for it...its beyond that. I used to splurge on Macallan but havent bought one since I started with this. The price is right! I am convinced that it wont be there forever so I am committed to buying a stash and putting it in storage somewhere. But everytime I buy some....its gone, gulp!
