NEW Jameson Select Reserve

One Small Batch Grain
and Potstill Blend.
One Hand Picked
Barrel Sellection.
One Single Distillery.
Once a Year.

Jameson Select Reserve is the newest expression from the Jameson Single Distillery, which has been hand selected by the *Four Jameson Masters to deliver an extremely rich and luxurious taste experience. A rare selection of small batch grain whiskey, not found in any other Jameson whiskey, combined with a high proportion of single Irish pot still whiskey aged up to 12 years is what makes the Select Reserve blend so bold and powerfully smooth.

The select grain whiskey triple distilled in small batch quantities is made on just one occasion each year and is put away to mature in the Jameson Single Distillery.

Oloroso sherry and bourbon oak casks are chosen by the Master Blender who personally selects and samples every single one. The casks he judges to be at their perfection are put aside and carefully blended together to present Jameson Select Reserve in a taste experience where the trademark Jameson notes of toasted wood, spice and vanilla can be found with unique creamy luscious touches of exotic fruits.

Tasting Characteristics:

Aroma: Rich and full, developing into the succulent sweetness of exotic fruits like nectarines, apricot and papaya.

Taste: A burst of rich flavours combine to produce a creamy, luscious taste experience. The special fruity sweetness from the grain remains consistent, while the waves of vanilla, toasted wood and spices roll through.

Finish: An incredibly long finish with fruit and wood spices lingering in perfect proportion delivering an extremely rich and luxurious taste experience.

* The Four Masters are: The Master Distiller - Barry Crockett, The Master Blender - Billy Leighton, The Master of Maturation - Brendan Monks and The Master of Whiskey Science - David Quinn.
