Jameson Gold Reserve
started out as a limited edition expression that was originally created for the Asian market. It proved to be very popular and it was added as a permanent member of the Jameson range. The blend has been tweaked a little since it first appeared and now seems to be more rounded and harmonious than initial releases. The uniqueness of Jameson Gold comes from a proportion of ageing in new American oak barrels. New oak can be quite aggresive and tends to add a lots of flavour but also some tannin and woodiness the the whiskey, therefore it has to be used sparingly.
Jameson Gold Reserve is a creative blend of three whiskeys of advanced years, one of which is uniquely matured in virgin oak barrels. It’s the inspired choice of this virgin oak, coupled with the bourbon barrels and sherry casks, that account for the whiskey’s satisfying complexity and honey toasted sweetness.
