John Jameson was originally a lawyer from Alloa, Scotland before he founded his eponymous distillery in Dublin in 1780. John likely picked up his craft from his wife’s father, John Haig, a famous whisky distiller in Scotland.
THE FLAVOR PROFILE
Semi sweet fragrance of malted barley with butter tones and subtle oak notes. The palate is marked by the same, with the grain turning darker and more apparent with hints of spicy nut mixing in and out.
Ireland is one of the oldest producers of whiskey, with records proving distillation occurring hundreds of years ago. Irish Whiskey is not too dissimilar from Scotch Whiskey, though it often goes through a more intensive filtration process resulting in lighter, smoother flavor profiles.
