We’ve been distilling Jameson since 1780 but we’re always open to new ideas. So when Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery borrowed our casks to age their fine Irish stout, it gave us an idea; why not finish our own precious liquid in stout-seasoned oak barrels? The result is a special whiskey, still triple distilled, now rich with new notes of coffee, cocoa and butterscotch.
Nose: Crisp orchard fruits like green apples and pears, mild pot still spices.
Taste: Subtle touch of hops and cocoa beans, marzipan and charred oak
Finish: Long and sweet with milk chocolate and butterscotch.
The Jameson Caskmates story all began when Jameson’s head distiller and Franciscan Well’s head brewer met in the local pub. A swapping of barrels between friends soon after resulted in Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition - triple distilled, blended Irish whiskey finished in craft stout seasoned barrels.
