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.

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

Paul,
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

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

Sean,
Strong selection!! Cheers!

One of my personal favorites especially for the price
 
Craig
Craig,
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
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

Robust and smooth
 
Randall
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.
 
Roger
Roger,
A surprise to me that I could enjoy Jameson anything, but I really do enjoy this bottle.
 
Lisa
Lisa,
I purchased this as a gift for my son and he absolutely loves it!
 
David
David,
I love this stuff
 
Norman
Norman,
Love it. Great taste.
 
Matt
Matt,
A sweet honey taste at first, but a pretty boozy after taste. Much better after the ice melted a little bit.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
My favorite Irish Whiskey. Period.
 
John
John,
Very smooth. Nice finish
 
Brian
Brian,
I bought this whiskey for a cocktail. I infused it with nettle tea. I wouldn’t drink this one straight.
 
Leo
Leo,
A great sipping drink.
 
Charles
Charles,
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.
 
Randall
Randall,
Extremely smooth and delicious.
 
Devlin
Devlin,
Just phenomenal
 
Kevin
Kevin,
I think its much smoother than regular Jameson. Great taste!
 
Jacob
Jacob,
This absolutely surprised me. I dislike original Jameson and this was amazing. That big butterscotch right upfront stole my heart. Automatic bottle purchase.
 
Bill
Bill,
Friggin awesome!
 
Don
Don,
Stays in the front of your mouth longer than caskmates or regular Jameson. Good with BBQ tri-tip (a specialty around here).
 
Deja
Deja,
So smooth and a delicious flavor profile.
 
Ryan

Jameson & ginger w/ a twist of lime...yea, that'll do!

John
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.

What's there to not love about Jameson. Delicious, relaxing & smooth.
