Jameson Black Barrel is a new expression of the world's top-selling Irish Whiskey that delivers the signature smoothness of Jameson Original, with enhanced spice, nutty notes, vanilla sweetness and sherry fruit.
Twice charred for a good measure. Black Barrel is a triple distilled blend of rich pot still and grain whiskey that is matured in a mixture of sherry casks and bourbon barrels. However, unlike the rest of our range, the bourbon barrels undergo an additional charring. It's a painstaking process, but we hope you'll agree that it's worth the extra effort.
On the nose, Black Barrel brings together butterscotch and creamy, toffee fudge from the grain whiskey with peppery notes from the pot still whiskey, and ripe succulent fruits like nectarines, apricot and ripe apples from the sherry casks. The flavor is intense and, enhanced by the grain whiskey's time in specially flame charred bourbon barrels, delivers more concentrated spice, nutty notes and vanilla sweetness, while the pot still whiskey in sherry casks adds sherry fruit flavors.
