Delicate and fragrant with citrus and honeysuckle playing a lead role. Also suggestion of brown sugar and oats. On the palate it is incredibly full, opulent and honeyed and allows the citrus and honeysuckle to show through. The finish is rather elegant and while floral, also takes on a hint of maraschino cherry for a much appreciated balance. (Mar 2013)
Jameson Gold Reserve is a creative blend of three whiskeys of advanced years, one of which is uniquely matured in virgin oak barrels. It’s the inspired choice of this virgin oak, coupled with the bourbon barrels and sherry casks, that account for the whiskey’s satisfying complexity and honey toasted sweetness.
