Top reviews for Jameson Black Barrel:

— My new favorite! Not a big Irish Whiskey drinker but found this to be smooth and well balance served neat or with an ice cube or cooling rocks. Great change of pace from my bourbons and ryes!

— On this one I am biased; this is my favorite whiskey. This is my default 'go-to'. If it is not Jameson Black, then it's Johnnie Walker Black. Something about those black labels and nice rich flavor. Pairs great with med/med-rare steak and any flavor of pipe tobacco.

— I got this to ring in St Patrick’s Day. It is a very nice dram. Will be buying this again !

Awesome
 
Trevor
Trevor,
Light body, oak, and smoke. Some Carmel
 
David
David,
So this is my first try of a Jameson product - I usually take my whiskey neat and this is a very drinkable everyday whiskey. Not top shelf stuff but it stands up well on its own.
 
Michael
Michael,
Good for something different. A bit of a addition flavor over regular Jameson
 
Mitchell
Mitchell,
Odd aftertaste
 
Timothy
Timothy,
It was very good I tried regular Jameson and IPA edition Jameson during this tasting this was the best of the three. The IPA Jameson was disgusting barely drinkable...
 
Tim
Tim,
Very smooth. My wife new favorite, prior to trying this it was Angls Envy Finished rye - she seems to be asking for the Jameson more often.
 
Ty
Ty,
I use this for ICBs but had it neat and it isn't bad by any means.
 
Ron
Ron,
Very smooth with a sneaky wood flavor. If you like regular Jamesons and American whiskey, you’ll love this. Not overly sweet or smoky
 
Duane
Duane,
This has been my go to from the first sip. Cant beat it for the price for sure.

Loved it!!

My new favorite! Not a big Irish Whiskey drinker but found this to be smooth and well balance served neat or with an ice cube or cooling rocks. Great change of pace from my bourbons and ryes!
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Solid, smooth, definitely taste the vanilla notes on the back end
 
AARON
AARON,
When looking for an antonym for smooth I found a reference to this whiskey. On the plus side, a couple of cubes of ice or splash of water does mellow it and let the flavors come forward. The most American tasting Irish Whiskey I have come across.
 
Steven
Steven,
Great taste smooth.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Loved it!
 
Edward
Edward,
On this one I am biased; this is my favorite whiskey. This is my default 'go-to'. If it is not Jameson Black, then it's Johnnie Walker Black. Something about those black labels and nice rich flavor. Pairs great with med/med-rare steak and any flavor of pipe tobacco.
 
Dan
Dan,
This is a good drink. It is extremely smooth, nothing like I was expecting. I give it an 7 now, I may need to drink more to see if it should be higher. I’m wondering if it is too smooth?
 
Scott
Scott,
I got this to ring in St Patrick’s Day. It is a very nice dram. Will be buying this again !
 
Robinson
Robinson,
It tastes like a cocktail with how sweet and refined it is. Really enjoyable.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
This was smooth and had great taste. Love the lingering smoky, wood flavors with slight sweetness.
 
Alan
Alan,
Incredibly smooth and complex--this may be my new favorite. It goes down easy neat. Great mouthfeel and lasting smoky and slightly sweet flavors.
 
Cecil
Cecil,
Jameson has always been a staple for me, and got me into whiskey, but the black barrel expression take an already great whiskey and turns it up a notch. Would love a touch more proof in this one but an overall great pour.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
SMOOOOOOOOTH
 
Charles
Charles,
I under estimated this one. Not a lot of burn and great with the fellows or any party.

Smoother than regular Jameson with a hint of smoke. Nice finish. Good sipping Whiskey!
 
Chivonne
Chivonne,
I dont usually go for the Jameson brand,but I have to say this was great! It had very subtle sweet and smooth notes. I found the hints chocolate and vanilla very pleasing to my palate and wasn't overwhelmed by the spicy attributes. Overall excellent after dinner spirit.
 
Eric

Excellent! Sweet and better than most bourbons. Nice peppery finish. My go to whiskey.
 
Terry
Terry,
I’m still early in my whiskey journey so i can’t give a sophisticated explanation, but this was one of my favorites so far
 
Gary
Gary,
Smooth and delicious I've never tried Jameson's before and I'll definitely get another bottle
 
peter
peter,
I am relatively new to tasting whiskey’s that are above average and more. However, I did like the Black Barrel very much. I thought it was smooth with a peppery finish. I can see having a bottle on hand at all times to sip as a daily go to whiskey.

A bit nondescript.

Genesis
Genesis,
A dry vanilla finish but really smooth on the palette. I really enjoyed having it with food!
 
Matt
Matt,
Insanely good Perhaps the smoothest whiskey I’ve ever tasted. Beautiful custard-like flavour. Heavy sweetness and vanilla finishing on a light spicy note. Truly a new favourite, lived up to the hype.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Really good stuff, I heard people talking about the Black Barrel and it does not disappoint, full of flavor, vanilla and bourbon barrels make this a uniquely Good $35 Irish.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
This has the classic Jameson taste but it's smoother and that sweet, light, oaky finish is what makes it my favorite Irish whiskey. I recommend trying it chilled.

Barry
Barry,
Smooth flavorful Good every day drink for the money Not much of a finish
 
Steve
Steve,
I've ordered Jameson Black Barrel twice now and it has become my favorite Irish whiskey to date. The Butterscotch, toffee, fudge, and black pepper come through on the nose and once it hits the palate it sits beautifully. The finish lasts nice and long.
 
George
George,
Not much about it I don't like, it's more that it is light on flavor. What flavor it has I enjoy.

My love of Jameson was limited to “Jameson & Ginger”. Black Barrel changed that... I always have a bottle on hand to show my buddies. Like me, they are consistently impressed. Well done, Jameson!

Matthew

Very smooth and sweet. Strong Vanilla, bit of butterscotch and honey.
 
Chuck
Chuck,
The smoothest ‘Irish’ I have tasted (and I’ve tasted a few). Always have a bottle in my stock.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
I have just recently purchased this and was very pleased. Nice flavor and very smooth. Drink it neat and at room temperature. Mellow with no burn or aftertaste. I will keep this in my stock at all times.
 
Jack
Jack,
Some butterscotch on the nose, strong vanilla taste, the finish is very mellow but not very long. Definitely more interesting than regular Jameson.
 
Stacy
Stacy,
This is my new standard. This is a great sipping whiskey! Definitely will keep in stock.
 
Matt
Matt,
Really smooth Irish whiskey. I’m more of a scotch fan but really enjoyed.
 
SCOTT
SCOTT,
This is good stuff. Lots of flavor, smooth, mid priced. I still prefer Scotch, but I guess I have to sample other Irish Whiskey ( my brother swears by this whiskey)!!!

Sweet, caramel, and delicious. Great for winter to sip neat.
 
W.
W.,
Shared it with a friend who was concerned about the Jameson name on the label as he generally dislike such items but he was surprised by the flavor and how smooth it was. Perhaps a convert.
 
Mike
Mike,
I really enjoyed this Jameson, it was very light easy to drink, not too sweet, no burn and very smooth. I drink this neat.
 
Bryce
Bryce,
I would have given it an 8/10, but the price makes it a 9. Outstanding Irish whiskey. My GF loves it. The oak/char/smoke is just right and doesn't overpower. Sweet (not too sweet though) on the finish and easy to drink. I drink it neat and in an Old Fashioned (one sugar cube, 2 dashes bitters, splash club soda, 2oz of Jameson). Great buy.
 
aaron
aaron,
Better than the "standard" Jameson, but tasted too much like bourbon to justify the price premium.
 
Robert
Robert,
This is the best I own currently. Jameson Black Barrel brings out the oaky smoke flavor. I thoroughly enjoy this neat AND in the rocks.
 
Ronald
Ronald,
Not too sweet, very smooth and very well balanced!
 
Michael
Michael,
I didn't care for this.

Great aroma, don’t be deterred by the “charred” description. Very nice staple
 
Brian
Brian,
Smooth with a nice aftertaste that's perfect!
 
Dee
Dee,
Who could not love Jameson? I've lways heard about it but never tried it. I love all the creamy flavors with Irish whiskey in them, so thought I would give it a go. Very yummy to drink neet. I'm sure it would make for the best of cocktails also. I only gave it a 7 as I'm convinced I will definitely taste better as time goes on with my Flaviar membership.
 
Erik
Erik,
Great whiskey with a little bite on the end
 
Scott
Scott,
Heavy vanilla. Sweet with no bite.
 
Kerry
Kerry,
Very smooth! I loved this whiskey!
 
Derek
Derek,
Not overwhelming with the vanilla, and you can definitely taste the char. Notably better than basic Jameson for drinking straight. As a really solid value for the price, this is one I always try to keep around in my home bar.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Wonderfully smooth and creamy, this bottle surprised me. It is sweet on the nose with vanilla and caramel. The flavor is nice, decently sweet with a little char. Its weird but I also pick up a melon-y flavor. Overall would recommend for the price.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
I thought the Irish tasting box was great all three samples were very good. However I did not receive the Jameson Black, I received Jefferson Bourbon which was ok.
 
Ashton
Ashton,
When it comes to Jameson, I have not had a better bottle.
 
Paul
Paul,
Very enjoyable. Sweet, vanilla, and promotes relaxation.
 
Bonnie
Bonnie,
Was very excited about trying this and it was oh so disappointing. Seemed flat, minimal flavor. All name. No body
 
guest
guest,
Really smooth and, dare I say, CREAMY.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
My favorite sipping whiskey for a casual evening with friends
 
Phil
Phil,
On the nose it’s really pleasant sweet, fruity with just a bit of peat.... tastes smooth, caramel, tart, and followed by the spice.... the finish is the lingering spice and balanced. However, it kind of doesn't really stand out to the rest of the bottles that Jameson had in their line up.
 
Brandt
Brandt,
Very smooth and easy to drink, but still a rich deep flavor profile.
 
Tyler
Tyler,
Very smooth
 
Sue
Sue,
Smooth, nice flavor
 
Barry
Barry,
Nice smooth rounded taste.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
A little "hot" up front but beautiful vanilla on the back end
 
Hunter
Hunter,
An Irish that jumps out of the category a bit. More barrel flavors such as oak and vanilla thrown in which work wonders. A great option for those looking to bridge between the U.S. and Ireland, or if you can't decide between the two!
 
Francis
Francis,
Not as smooth as Tullamore Dew, but still pleasing. Some pepper in the after taste.
 
Ronald
Ronald,
Love the finish. The mouth feel is great.
 
Adrian
Adrian,
My favourite Friday night relaxing drink
 
Hunter
Hunter,
Very smooth. Flavors are not bold on the palate, but evidence of vanilla and pepper are certain. Rich finish.
 
Terry
Terry,
It is actually cheaper to buy this in the local supermarket
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Very smooth
 
Andrew
Andrew,
The nut and spice complement each other. Smooth finish with notes of pepper. Not as complex as the Stout Castmakes.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
I feel this was the replacement for the Jameson 12 Yr Old and it's not too far off.
 
Sean
Sean,
Heaven
 
Ryan

This was awesome. I was so sorry when the bottle was empty.

As a sipping drink it is beyond perfect. The smooth flavor is incredible. I will be stocking this one in my home bar.
 
James
James,
Being that I am new to this club, I’ll start simple. This was so smooth it melts in your mouth. Definitely my favorite Jamison
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Worth tasting, at my local store they stock the 375ml so worth picking up and having around for some interest from visitors. But not a regular
 
François-Xavier
François-Xavier,
Sweet butterscotch and vanilla but more important super smooth
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Very Smooth, I like this one. this is my new GO TO
 
Zachary
Zachary,
Eh.
 
Leslie
Leslie,
Probably my favorite daily go to. Love the vanilla and caramel, and a nice spicy finish. And better value than Barr an Uisce, which is still delicious.
 
Mike
Mike,
Premuim, I favor black whiskeys as a whole. Its that deeper caramel or smooth punch. This one is premium. I enjoy this on special occasions.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Great to sip and good with some rootbeer.
 
guest
guest,
Spicy, sweet and smooth.
 
Eric
Eric,
Wowza. Long been a Jameson fan. Going on 20+ years now. I really dug this version of one of my long running favorites. Tasty vanilla and spice. Good, thick mouthfeel that’s roles around on your tongue. The charting gives it a touch of a bitter back end, but I like it for putting some hair on my big toe.
 
Michael
Michael,
Wonderfully smooth. A great sipping whiskey.
 
guest
guest,
Yes!!!!
 
Dan
Dan,
I really like the regular Jameson better. This seems really over oaked and overdone.
 
Robert
Robert,
Literally uisce beatha (ish ka baja) water of life. I've had the entire family of Jameson. Black Barrel is by far my favorite. This is my go to, neat, sitting by the fire or reading a book. Amazing color. Wonderful flavors
 
David
David,
After drinking Black Barrel, I want no other Irish whiskey. It's just so damn smooth and rich. Nice caramel finish too. Always a safe bet. It's my old faithful.
 
Adam
Adam,
Damn good whiskey!!
 
Susan
Susan,
I haven't received it. The order was placed May 2nd. What is wrong with this?!
 
David
David,
A Jameson fan so I was eager to try Black Barrel. My wife and I both loved it in our mixed drinks just slightly better than regular Jameson. Adds a little extra flavor which makes it just that much better.
 
J
J,
One of my favorites.
 
Cody
Cody,
Started out good but finished with an unpleasant aftertaste that reminded me of under cooked fish.
 
Will
Will,
My all-time favorite Irish whiskey. For the price as well, the double casking makes this ultra-smooth and really has a lot of flavors. An easy grab at the store.
 
Lloyd
Lloyd,
This is a really lovely take from Jameson. Delightfully smooth, yet full of flavour. A personal favourite of mine.
 
David
David,
Such a great flavor. Smooth all the way from start to finish.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Smooth up front with a little spice and boldness on the back end
 
John
John,
A little more flavor then the standard Jameson, holds up a little better to rocks or cocktails.
 
Erik
Erik,
If youre a bourbon drinker wanting to try an Irish whiskey, this is the one for you. The charred barrrel results in some bourbon-esque flavors in addition to the stereotypical Irish flavors.
 
Robert
Robert,
A solid whiskey.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Very good. My usual go to at the bar.
 
Salvatore
Salvatore,
Can’t go wrong with this one.

Stephen
Stephen,
A very fine whiskey, found it smooth with a pleasant taste and has a welcome hint of spice, might just make it a regular in my home bar.
 
Stacy
Stacy,
Great flavor. Smooth and tasty!
 
Guy
Guy,
Huge Improvement over the standard Jameson. Has some stiff competition at its price range but it isn't blown away by anything. Finding it for around $35 is a good deal for this dram. Good blend of affordability and quality.
 
Fred
Fred,
This my favorite, love it over the regular Jameson
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
Decent whisky, but don’t be fooled by the relatively high average rating. Some hollow vanilla and caramel up front immediately followed by slight char flavor. Medium finish that with slight spice. Definitely not an 8, but also not a 4. There are certainly better Irish whiskies under $50. This seems to get its inflated rating for being the commonly available cool uncle of the commonly available Jameson. Perfectly acceptable for an Irish coffee, but let’s be honest: you bury a whisky under coffee, cream and sugar.
 
Peter
Peter,
A little phenol in the nose with vanilla. Strong finish, but overall not as much flavor as I was hoping for. Still a strong pour though.
 
Anna
Anna,
Lovely caramel and nut flavours, slightly smoky finish. Amazing value for money, definitely on par with some much more expensive bottlings from Scotland.
 
Geoff
Geoff,
Good, great whiskey sours
 
Glenn
Glenn,
The original Jameson taste just got better.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Remarkable smooth with that purely Irish taste, pour over rocks, sip with enjoyment of the flavor, and be rocking like Barney Stinson
 
Piotr
Piotr,
I little unusual Irish whiskey with a small hint of smoke, a little kick, and nice finish. For the price paid is a very good deal.
 
Jerry
Jerry,
I enjoyed this bottle, a smooth Irish Whiskey. Look forward to visiting the distillery soon, I hope.

Honey/sweet, nice char and oak flavor, smooth with nice finish

To paraphrase Dean Dillon. ‘Smooth as Jameson’s whisky’.

Wonderful stuff, very smooth
 
Eric
Eric,
I was misinformed about the finishing process. I was in Dublin after having a Guinness when the bar tender told me that this whiskey was finished in Guinness barrels. So I tried it. Still today I get a Guinness finish when drinking this neat. If you like beer, you’ll love this!
 
Graham
Graham,
Very pleasant and easy drinking, if somewhat lacking in depth of character.

I really enjoyed this whiskey. It has a Caramel and vanilla flavor and it smells like a campfire.

Great blend, very smooth
 
Megan
Megan,
I was never a whiskey drinker, but this is the one that brought me to the dark side. The taste is smooth and not at all overwhelming to me. I can honestly say I enjoy sipping on this regardless of where I am.
 
William
William,
Very nice for an Irish whiskey, would buy again
 
Tom
Tom,
Smooth, with just a hint of smoke.
 
Charles
Charles,
Would definitely buy again, probably where quality meats affordability in the Irish section. Lovely sweetness, not sickly. Green fruits but refined. Will never buy regular Jameson as the extra ten bucks makes a big difference.
 
Bradley
Bradley,
Extremely smooth with a very pleasant aftertaste
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Love the rich taste from this Jameson.
 
Richard

My “go to” Jameson after a long days work! With or without ginger ale goes down smooth and refreshing.

This is my go to whiskey.
 
Adam
Adam,
Fairly smooth for the price point, wouldn't mind it again.
 
Owen
Owen,
One of my go to’s. Great in the rocks or mixed with some Ginger ale
 
Zane
Zane,
It's fine. Kind of boring, but in a good way? A solid go-to choice. Although for my money, Powers Gold Label is the better every day Irish dram, but to each their own!
 
David
David,
A go to favorite. Easy, simple, great!
 
Kat
Kat,
I love this one to drink straight, it finishes with a stronger kick than traditional Jameson but doesn’t burn in the throat

Carmel and Vanilla notes with a little Smokey aftertaste. One of our favorites.

No knowledge, just like the easy flavor as I drink it. Not harsh at all, fairly smooth and enjoyable.
 
Angela
Angela,
This bottle of Jameson has really stuck out. So smooth in fact that ever time I open one, I come close to finishing it. So much better than the Jameson Caskmates or any other Irish whiskey I have tried to date.
 
Michael
Michael,
Smoooooth yet tocuh of a sweetness mixed with spice. But the sweetness follows the spice. It’s fefin a means of being able to ebhoNce the differ palates for beginners die to the distinctive profiles.

Fantastic Carmel and vanilla flavors. Enjoyed it neat, slightly chilled. Priced right.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
So nice...especially for the price
 
Marc
Marc,
This is one of my favorite Irish Whiskeys. The subtle tones of caramel and oak are accented by a faint smoke and spice. There is no bitter burn with this whiskey and it is in my opinion best on the rocks after a few minutes chill.
 
John
John,
This may be my favorite of the affordable Jameson line. It has a very smooth taste.

Perfect, well balanced. Delicious apple flavor. The best Irish Whiskey. Makes great Irish Coffee. Outstanding. The double charge brings out the flavors.
 
Danielle

Surprisingly good - one of the better Jamesons in my opinion.
 
David
David,
This stuff is scary good. Not much else to say.
 
Larry
Larry,
Clearly a Jameson aged in a fresh charred barrel. The triple distilled approach to a american style bourbon is interesting and worth trying but is nothing to write home about.
 
David

A nice and smooth whiskey. Complex enough to really get into it, but not to complicated either.

Very smooth with amazing hints of other flavors. Not sure if it's still stands true, but the company that owns Jameson also owns Bushmill's.

Jeffrey,
I'll order this again. The smoothest Jameson I've tried so far
 
Eric
Eric,
I find Jameson to be a bit rough compared to Bushmills

Randall,
The discussion is of Jameson Black Barrel; however, the bottle pictured above is Black Barrel Select Reserve...two entirely different whiskeys. Apparently Jameson does not make the Select Reserve any more...you can't find it...and tries to pass off the Black Barrel as the same product. It is not! The Select Reserve is the smoothest whiskey I ever tasted...the Black Barrel tastes nothing like it. I emailed Jameson to ask why they quit making it...they never answered.

A sweet honey taste at first, but a pretty boozy after taste. Much better after the ice melted a little bit.

Not as smooth as standard fare Jameson, but the vanilla was a nice touch.
 
Paul
Paul,
At first, I was not sure i was going to like this. Black Barrel usually doesn't mean much to me - however, to me - this really redefines what I think of Jameson. I found the tasting notes to be spot on and this works so well with mulled cider, it melted into the background perfectly. I will certainly get another bottle!
 
Sara
Sara,
I don't enjoy the original Jameson as much as this one, and my tastes run to either liking a smooth or a peaty whiskey. pretty much nothing in between excites me. The butterscotch/vanilla with the currant finish got me.

Stays in the front of your mouth longer than caskmates or regular Jameson. Good with BBQ tri-tip (a specialty around here).

John,
For a fan of Jameson in the first place, the addition of the charred barrel intensifies the flavors.The smoothness, the flavors are subtly enhanced with the time spent in the charred barrels and gives you, the drinker a flavor boost that lingers on the tongue.
