I love whisk(e)y, period! I love tasting new whiskies, especially ones that come from places that I haven’t tasted before. It’s exciting to find similar and very different characteristics I’m expecting or not. Here’s a whiskey not from such a new or different producing place or country, but rather perhaps a country that might be credited for getting Scotland distilling in the 1400’s.
Jameson 12y Special Reserve Irish Whiskey:
Acidic, but still sweet, malty molasses
sour cherries, the flesh of the cherry and not the skin
dried out wood
