Jameson Caskmates… two heads are better than one.   
 
Back in the late 1700’s, there were two powerful distilling families in Ireland—the Haigs and the Steins. John Jameson was originally from Scotland, but married into the family and moved to Dublin in 1777 where he was put in charge of the new Bow Street Distillery, founded in 1780. He acquired the entire operation in 1810, and the Jameson & Son Distillery Company came into being. 
 
Jameson used to enjoy sharing a drink and a story with his workers at the end of their work shift, and to this day, you'll see two barrel men balanced on either side on the bottom of the label. These two men symbolize the generations of Jameson workers who have labored with passion and commitment to producing Irish Whiskey. Since then Jameson has become the most recognizable and best-selling Irish Whiskey in the world with a wide-ranging product line delivering over 56 million bottles of golden Irish nectar each year. 
 
So… the head distiller at Jameson was having a late night conversation with the brewmaster at Franciscan Well Brewery in Cork, Ireland. The two men hatched a plan. Jameson would send over a bunch of empty Whiskey casks and Franciscan’s would use it to mature their barrel-aged Stout lager. Then, he would send those casks back to—you guessed it—age the Irish Whiskey. “Caskmates,” get it? 
 
Turns out that this was a bloody good idea! What you get is a classic Irish Whiskey that radiates an aroma with a subtle hop-iness and a few crushed almonds, among other things.

Slightly clinical taste, perhaps it was the bar, but a nice enough finish and easy on the palate.

Dana
Dana,
I really enjoyed the Caskmates from Jameson. Nice warm beginning, smooth but yet let's you know what you sipped, and a crisp finish, but the in between is the best, carmely and almost buttery along with fruit hints, nice mouth feel. All in all very well done, I would think anyone would enjoy it whether your a avid whisky drinker or just to have a sip every once and awhile.

A bit sharp, didn't mellow or open well even with an ice cube added.
Armand
Armand,
While more interesting than Jameson, it's aroma still fails when compared to Bourbon. The low alcohol of both scotch and Irish whiskies still disappoints.

Another great Jameson whiskey. Everything you expect from a Jameson up front but surely a little punch from the cask (in this case, port) on the back end. Just opened the bottle and nearly half gone.

The stout edition is very nice, I'd love to find the stout that was aged in the Jameson barrels for a pairing!
