Jameson 12 Year Whiskey

Jameson 12 Year Whiskey

Jameson 12 Year Old has a wonderful pot still character combined with the smoothness you would expect from a Jameson. The pot still content on the standard Jameson ranges from 5-7 years old. With the 12 Year Old, the extra ageing adds considerable depth and complexity.

Matured in a combination of Oloroso sherry casks and seasoned bourbon barrels, Jameson 12 Year Old is an intense but smoothly balanced whiskey. Some things can’t be rushed, and the patience allowed for this whiskey delivers robust notes of spice, sherry and toasted fruit that will appease the most demanding palate.

John Jameson established his distillery in Dublin in 1780, determined to create the finest whiskey in the world. Over 230 years later, Jameson continues to be acclaimed all over the world for its exceptionally smooth taste.

The hallmark smoothness comes down to three factors; triple distillation, controlled maturation and masterly blending of the various whiskey components. These were the key stipulations laid down by John Jameson, and to this day they are passionately adhered to at Midleton Distillery, thus making Jameson the world’s No. 1 Irish Whiskey. It can be enjoyed neat, with ice, or mixed in a long drink or cocktail.

Jameson Irish Whiskey is triple distilled to deliver twice the smoothness. But there is a little more to this precise craft: it is also about obtaining the perfect balance. First, the balance between the amount of malted and un-malted barley, in order to give a natural barley flavour. But it is also about mastering the proportions of triple distilled Pot Still Whiskeys and triple distilled Grain Whiskeys, in order to deliver exceptional smoothness. And lastly, it is about harmonizing the sweet, nutty flavour from Sherry casks with the toasted wood and vanilla notes from Bourbon casks.
