Tasting Notes
Wonderfully mellow and smooth, a mouthful of complex flavour - fudge, toffee, spice, hints of wood and leather, vanilla and a gentle sherry nuttiness. A long, lingering finish carries the theme of the wood, spice and toffee right through to the end.

General Info
This whiskey’s story started on the 5th of October 1740 when John Jameson was born to a family whose motto, ‘Sine Metu’ (‘Without Fear’), was awarded to them for their bravery in battling pirates on the high seas in the 1500’s. Years later, this family motto was inspiration for thirty-year old John Jameson’s move to Dublin to start a whiskey distillery. As John Jameson established his whiskey distillery in Dublin, his practice of using only the finest ingredients began to leave a mark. Jameson personally selected the barley and casks, insisting his whiskey be distilled three times, not twice like Scottish whiskey, to create a spirit that’s twice as smooth. By 1810, John Jameson’s son, John II had expanded the distillery to be one of the largest in Ireland and, in the late 1800s, his son, John III expanded the business globally to make it one of the largest whiskeys in the world. By the time John IV took over in the early 1900s John Jameson & Sons Whiskey was world renowned. John Jameson passed away at the ripe age of 83, quite an achievement in the early 19th century. Today, nearly 200 years later, the family's triple distilled blend is still the world's number one Irish whiskey. Wonderfully mellow and smooth, a mouthful of complex flavour - fudge, toffee, spice, hints of wood and leather, vanilla and a gentle sherry nuttiness. A long, lingering finish carries the theme of the wood, spice and toffee right through to the end.
