Jameson Bow Street 18 Irish Whiskey 55.3% ABV (50ml)
The Bow Street 18 Years Cask Strength is a blend of pot still and grain Irish whiskeys, bottled at cask strength. It was matured initially for 18 years in both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks at the Midleton Distillery, Co. Cork. It was re-casked in first-fill ex-bourbon American oak barrels for a final six to 12 months at the Jameson Distillery Bow Street in Dublin.
NOSE Dark, antique oak with melting butter and soft toffee. Subtle sherry spice emerge among a slight grassiness, plum compote and a touch of bitter herbs.
PALATE A thick, gooey blend of Galaxy Caramel, treacle and butterscotch retain a deep and luscious sweetness against more oak and a hint of leather. Bramble berries and black cherry rolling tobacco add depth among drying coriander spice.
FINISH Oak and rich vanilla pod earthiness with a hint of strawberry jam in a long, composed finish.
