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.

    Glenmorangie The Original

    A classic and accessible single malt, but as I say about many others in that category, that is NOT intended as a criticism but a compliment.  The nose is sweet with citrus fruit and vanilla.  The taste is quite light, creamy with orange, peach and licorice and the finish is quite nutty, dry and crisp, oak wood notes and even some smoke.  Not massively complex or deep but still a great whisky.
