Jameson Select Reserve Black Barrel

Country: Ireland
Type: Irish
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 40%
Score: 89 points

This expression uses more charred ex-bourbon casks than usual for Jameson, and the nose has hints of smokiness along with red grapes, apples, and black tea with lemon. The taste is creamy and buttery with a nice touch of cinnamon spice, honey, vanilla, and black tea with lemon. The finish is long and reminiscent of a lemon and honey cough drop. Very nice.
