Jameson Distillers Blends Trio Gift Set
Jameson Distillers Safe
Creator by Brian Nation, the head distiller at Midleton Distillery (at the time of bottling), this has been created by him to highlight the underlying quality of the spirit at the distillery.
A no age statement which is comprised of a blend of grain, pot still and small batch grain distillates. To quote Irish Distillers directly, this ‘Delivers a smooth mouthfeel and gentle notes of apricot, cinnamon and melon, The Distiller’s Safe pays respect to the character of the distillate. Long before barrels make their mark, a pot still has the first say.’
Apparently this is the youngest of the three whiskeys in the Whiskey Makers Series and is entirely aged in ex-Bourbon barrels.
Jameson Coopers Croze
Jameson’s Master Cooper was named in honour of Ger Buckley. This showcases the diversity of the barrels used at Jameson and the influence of the oak on the whiskey. Fittingly this is composed of no age statement grain and pot still distillates aged in a variety of barrels including ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry and some virgin oak barrels.
According to Irish Distillers: ‘The Cooper’s Croze is a carefully crafted whiskey that effortlessly carries vanilla sweetness, rich fruit flavours, floral and spice notes and the undeniable influence of oak. You can take whiskey out of wood but you can never take the wood out of whiskey.’
Jameson Blenders Dog
Jameson Blender’s Dog celebrates the craft of Billy Leighton, who is master blender at Jameson. This features a blend of both grain and pot still whiskeys that have been aged in ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry barrels. Apparently three different spirit types are used in the grain and pot still element and four different barrel age profiles.
In the sage words of Irish Distillers this ‘delivers butterscotch sweetness with a prickle of spice and tannins. Making whiskey requires a fair deal of science, but blending is an art.’
