Jameson Black Barrel is a tribute to the cooper’s method of charring barrels. Charring is an age old method for invigorating barrels, but these days we use double charred barrels by choice rather than through necessity. Time spent maturing in these barrels lends this whiskey intensified notes of vanilla sweetness and caramel, alongside toasted wood, fruit, and warm spice. A triple distilled blend of small batch grain and traditional Irish pot still whiskeys, Jameson Black Barrel reveals untold richness and complexity. Every barrel contains secrets; the trick is coaxing them out.

Dram's Checkins

Mark Railton
Hints of butterscotch and vanilla on the nose, slightly spicy with definite hints of caramel and vanilla on the tongue. Finish is relatively short with a hint of charred wood. One of my more regular drams
Only just realised I've rated this at 3, should have been 4, ah well.
