Jameson Irish Whisky is as Irish as Irish gets.

Back in the late 1700’s Ireland, there was one powerful distilling family in two branches — the Haigs and the Steins. John Jameson was originally from Scotland, but married into the Haig family and moved to Dublin 1777 where he was put in charge of the new Bow Street Distillery which was founded in 1780. After working hard for years, he eventually acquired the entire operation in 1810, and the Jameson & Son Distillery Company was born. 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.

When the Whiskey-drinking world thinks of Irish Whiskey, they think of Jameson’s. It’s not only the largest selling brand of liquid Irish culture, it is the standard by which all others are measured. The core Jameson’s Whiskey spirit comes from a single distillery in Cork, Ireland, but uses a unique mixture of grain, single malt, and single-pot-still spirits aged seven years. All of the grains are sourced from local fields within a 50-mile radius of the plant, making Jameson’s more than just Irish in style and method — it carries the flavor of the land where it was born.

Smartass Corner: John Jameson used to enjoy sharing a drink and a story with his workers at the end of their work-shift. Jameson’s has always been the working-man’s quality Irish dram and to this day you'll see two barrel men balanced on either side on the bottom of the label.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Jameson Irish Whiskey and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

Irish Whiskey became the most prominent Whiskey and most popular spirit in the 19th century because of the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.

It’s a staple.
 
DAVID
DAVID,
One of my favorite whiskeys. As a rum guy, this is a great change of pace when I get a chance to enjoy it.

Smooth, smells sweet. 3 drinks in?
 
Justin
Justin,
A staple part of every home collection, one of the basic pillars of whiskey drinking and collecting.

I like it, the best thing is the price.

My daily drink, perfect for anytime of the day
 
Cynthia
Cynthia,
It’s been a staple for me. But I am a novice and very basic whiskey drinker.
 
Michael
Michael,
Waaaat? Regular Jamison's as a favorite? Yes, it's flexible and doesn't suck. Drink Jamison's with your Catholic friends and Bushmills with your Protestant friends and you won't cringe when they ask for Sprite or something to mix it with. It's an "all-day" whiskey because it is what it is without smoke, flavorings, unpleasant after-taste or - if you add an ice cube and wait a moment - rough edges (I like it neat tho). Think smilin' old Irish eyes and don't apolog-eyes. Irish coffee is always a hit at the end of an evening.

Iraklis,
A solid choice for an evening out.

Not my thing, advertised as an Irish whiskey but is definitely not a traditional one. I’m not a whiskey lover myself though and tend to prefer a good scotch.
 
David
David,
Great whiskey to make a mixed drink.

Potent. Aftertaste is a tad harsh but it's my preferred whiskey

Very smooth, slightly fruity.

My first Whiskey love. Slight bite, never leaves you wanting.

Black Barrel is our favorite of the Jameson family but this is a definite staple to have in the cabinet too.

David
David,
Smells of fruits lite apple and pear with a bit of hops in the background, Taste of pear, vanilla with a oily character, Lingers with a light taste of cocoa and coffee,
 
Michael
Michael,
Call me crazy, but I thought this was a little to strong and I thought it had a bold spicy finish. It could be that I've had a few other whiskeys and it was neat. When I put an ice cube in the glass it calmed down and was a little milder with a shorter finish. I think I prefer it in a mixed cocktail, like an Emerald or Irish Martini.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Bite in the beginning and end. I could tases the hops but not much on pear.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
A little on the bland side but has a decent taste with a clean finish.
 
Justin
Justin,
Sweet. For those who like sweet Irish whiskey. Perfect mixer. Jameson and Ginger Ale anyone?
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Hints of honey, vanilla and oak. Smooth with a quick finish. Good for sippin’ or mixin’...
 
Brad
Brad,
Go to shot, not much for sipping
 
Jeff
Jeff,
The go-to. Perfect as a mixer.
 
Pete
Pete,
An absolute standard. Every home bar should have Jameson for shots, drinking neat, over ice, or creative drinks like pickle back shots. Almost no alcohol burn and a pleasant, slightly smoky finish with oak, cherry and vanilla.
 
Cody
Cody,
Favorite everyday drinkable whiskey
 
Don
Don,
It's a nice Irish Whiskey
 
Evan
Evan,
A completely decent Whiskey for the price. You certainly get what you pay for, but at $15-20 a bottle you can’t do much better.

This is my personal whiskey baseline.

Nauseating when sipping, but good shooter and a homeland classic

Kyle

It's not bad, just not my personal favorite.
 
John
John,
Totally for mixing. Spoke with a bar tender from Ireland who said that this was not even a popular whiskey back in Ireland.
 
Jordan
Jordan,
A great inexpensive everyday drink
 
Ken
Ken,
A great "gateway" whiskey. I prefer it over Bushmills.
 
David
David,
Jameson is a balanced Irish Whiskey that is affordable and a "go to" if your strapped on cash but still want to have some to drink.
 
Rick
Rick,
This is my go to Whiskey.

Because it’s Jameson, that’s why.

It’s the high class of the low quality whiskeys. Good bang for your buck.
 
Perry
Perry,
Sweet aged oak, very subtle almond legs with barely noticeable vanilla finish. Makes a great hot toddy---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ( 4 tbags of Bombay chai , 4 tbags of vanilla chamomile, sugar to liking while tea is hot. Pour in cup, add Jameson a shot at a time until it has the warmth and love of that spiced cider grandma makes at Christmas.)

I got a lot of brown sugar and a little bit of apple.

It's great on the rocks. Very smooth
 
Victor
Victor,
I enjoy this as my go to whiskey for shooting but its a little to heavy with an oily sweetness for me to enjoy this as a sipping whiskey.
 
Charles
Charles,
Go to Irish whiskey. Always solid wither straight, on the rocks, or in a cocktail.

Always been my favorite. Smooth and tasty to drink on the rocks but also good to mix with a splash of ginger ale. Good go to for hardcore whiskey drinkers or somebody just getting into whiskey.

Very smooth and one of the easiest whiskey to drink. It’s my go to.
 
Ian
Ian,
For me this whisky is filled with personal history, so I may have a soft spot for it, however I can't think of a better partner for Ginger Ale. In fact "Jamey and Ginger" is almost an entire chapter of my life at the local irish pub. Easy to find, always tasty, and often the smallest hit to your wallet when out on the town. What's not to love?
 
Jason
Jason,
The classic Jameson is a great "ever day" whiskey to use for basic mixed drinks.

guest
guest,
Jameson can be found at nearly every bar in the world—a true standby for the wayfaring whiskey lover. Friendly, but with an underrated spectrum of flavors that nurture my soul. A great way to introduce a skittish friend to the world of whiskey neat.

Stechende Nase voll reifer Früchte, wenig aufregende Zunge, intensiver etwas bitterer Nachgeschmack 7/18 - Wien
 
Larry
Larry,
Standard for irish whiskies. Clean and due to their method of obtaining used bourbon barrels for aging - there are always slightly different notes to pick up on
