The Jameson Caskmates release is a unique whiskey that has been made with the help of Cork’s Franciscan Well brewery. Barrels that had been previously used for Jameson whiskey were taken to the Franciscan Well Brewery to use in the ageing of their full-bodied craft stout. Once used for beer maturation they were sent back to the distillery where Jameson whiskey that had already been aged was filled into them for a finishing period.
Caskmates is a head-turning, modern Irish whiskey.
Nose: Crisp orchard fruits like green apples and pears, mild pot still spices.
Taste: Subtle touch of hops and cocoa beans, marzipan and charred oak.
Finish: Long and sweet with milk chocolate and butterscotch.
