Jameson Black Barrel

The name of this 40% expression comes from heavily charred oak barrels used in the process.   The nose is fruity and sweet, with toasted pineapple and vanilla.  The mouth feel is very smooth and sweet with notes of butterscotch, floral honey, vanilla custard and toasted nut notes.    The finish has some chilli peppers and bitter lemon peel and dries out.  With some water it thins out and mouthfeel gets a little less creamy.   Lots of classic bourbon and oak notes which is what they were going for.

    My first Japanese blend, but definately not my last.  The nose is very fresh and fruity, sultanas and bananas.  The taste is creamy vanilla, a bit like melted ice cream, then some sweet fruits before a oak spice finish.  Really good stuff.
