Exactly the same in the taste, but the Irish character is even more noticeable – and so are the Sherry influence. Very sweet in the finish, with vanilla, white sugar and the sweetness from the dried fruits coming forward. For a 40% whiskey, it actually stays for quite a while.
Too bad it has been discontinued! Definitely one of the better Jameson’s – even Irish whiskey’s (that’s maybe taking it a bit far), out there! Rich in flavours, and so sweet that it reminds you of old grain (I bet there is some good grain whiskey in the mix!). I can only imagine this at a higher strength!! I will give this 84/100 (21/20/22/21).
