Two heads are said to be better than one, and this whiskey adds serious weight to that argument. Emerging from a conversation between Jameson's head distiller and the head brewer of Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery, Jameson Caskmates has been finished in stout-seasoned whiskey casks. While the triple-distilled smoothness is very much intact, notes of cocoa, coffee and butterscotch confirm the stout influence.
Caskmates is a head-turning, modern Irish whiskey.
Nose: crisp orchard fruits like green apples and pears, mild pot still spices
Taste: Subtle touch of hops and cocoa beans, Marzipan and charred oak
Finish: Long and sweet with Milk Chocolate and Butterscotch
