As “the master blender’s special selection of very old Jameson Irish Whiskey,” this bottling represents. Rich honey color, tropical fruit scent with a touch of thick caramel. The flavors are bright and vibrant—lychee, banana, orange peel, tempered by a wash of honey—and the finish is intriguing and dry with nuances of white chocolate, banana, leather and nutmeg. Beautiful.

Amber color. Rich aromas of toasted coconut, fig jam, cherry cordial, and spiced caramelized nuts follow through on a rich entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-full body with great depth and vibrancy. Finishes with a captivating wave of spices, melon, dried tropical fruit, and toasted grain. Deliciously youthful and vital.
