Jameson Rarest Vintage has been blended with some of the oldest and rarest whiskeys from Jameson’s maturing stock in Midleton – one of which was a pot-still whiskey matured in a port pipe, which adds an extra fruitiness to the final assemblage. At its core is a generous amount of old pot still with some very old grain, but what sets it apart is probably the portion matured in a sweet, raisiny port pipe. This is a highly complex, fruity, spicy and sweet tasting blend and must rank as one of the best Irish whiskeys currently available. Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve is a stunning bottle of limited edition Jameson. A rare treat.
Mellow sweetness of toasted wood is complemented by fruity richness of port casks while a touch of creamy dairy fudge and dark chocolate add to the complexity with a tantalising long finish.
