Jameson Black Barrel


Great, you made it!

We’re delighted you could join us for the Jameson Black Barrel Bartender Series 4D VR tasting.

This is where you really get to know Jameson Black Barrel Irish Whiskey.
De-constructed, at cask strength with our Master Distiller, Kevin O’Gorman surrounded by barrels stacked up to the roof and of course, the angel’s share.
This is one very special tasting that we’re excited to share with you.


Remove samples D1, D2, D3 & D4 from the kit & place them on the table in a triangular formation with sample D1 at the centre – see tasting matt layout below for reference.

Next, pour a small measure (keep some for later) of each of the 3 whiskeys into 3 glasses and finally grab yourself a small jug of water, and a separate glass of water to open up the Whiskeys and cleanse the palate between tastings.

It’s important to lay these samples out in a way that’s easy to navigate as you’ll be wearing the headset and won’t be able to see, so take the time to familiarise yourself with your layout.
Your set-up should look like this:

To get the most out of this one, we recommend standing so please find yourself a raised table such as a kitchen island, and keep one hand on it at all times for added safety.
