Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition

We’ve been distilling Jameson since 1780 but we’re always open to new ideas. So, when a local craft brewery borrowed our casks to age its fine Irish stout, it gave us an idea: why not finish our precious liquid in stoutseasoned oak barrels? And with that, Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition was born.

Nowadays, we lean on our friends down the road at Eight Degrees Brewing to help with a little taste ‘give-and-take’. They make a stout we’ve long been fans of, and it adds some incredible character for our oak barrels to soak up. Once those stout-seasoned barrels are refilled with Jameson, the taste heads off in exciting new directions.

 

Whiskey Type Pot still whiskey and grain whiskey.
Cask Type Matured in American bourbon barrels and Spanish sherry butts. Finished in stout-seasoned barrels.

Nose The initial aroma of freshly mown hay is complemented by a crisp orchard fruit character: green apples and pears, with a twist of lime zest. Mild pot still spices emerge, deepening from green tea to hazelnut and milk chocolate
Taste The initial sweet mouth-coating typical of the Irish pot still whiskey inclusion is soon joined by a subtle touch of hops and cocoa beans. Some marzipan and charred oak add to the complexity.
Finish Long and sweet, with milk chocolate and butterscotch notes
