Triple distilled, flame charred, for a rich smooth taste.

Charring is an age-old method for invigorating barrels to intensify the taste. Jameson Black Barrel is our tribute to our coopers, who painstakingly give their bourbon barrels an additional charring to reveal their untold richness and complexity. The select double charred barrels produce a whiskey with even richer flavor and intense smoothness.

Nose :
Time spent maturing in these barrels leads to intensified aromas of butterscotch, fudge and creamy toffee. 

Taste :
Nutty notes are in abundance alongside the smooth sweetness of spice and vanilla.
 
Finish :
Enjoy the richness and intensity of toasted wood and vanilla.

The former Bourbon barrels used to mature this whiskey were "charred and double charred," the producer says, to coax more from the barrel wood. Look for an almost piña colada-like effect: coconut and tropical fruit aromas, and a rich, honey-soaked palate that shows caramelized pineapple and dried apricot.
