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 of Jameson Original is very much intact, notes of cocoa, coffee and butterscotch confirm the stout influence.
Caskmates is a head-turning, modern Irish whiskey. It has a nose of crisp orchard fruits like green apples and pears, and mild pot still spices. The subtle flavors of hops and cocoa beans, marzipan and charred oak come to a long and sweet finish of milk chocolate and butterscotch. (from Jameson)
