You'd be hard-pressed to find a more iconic name in the Irish whiskey world than "Jameson." The Jameson tradition dates all the way back to 1740, when John Jameson was born into a family whose motto, "Sine Metu"("Without Fear"), was earned through the family's courage in fighting pirates on the high seas during the 1500s. John Jameson himself was a living embodiment of Sine Metu, and his ancestors' bravery inspired in John a boldness that led him not only to open his own distillery in the latter 18th century, but also to pioneer the technique of triple-distilling whiskey — now the gold standard in the Irish whiskey industry. John Jameson lived to be 83 — an impressive feat for someone born in the 18th century — and his descendants John II, John III and John IV all honored his legacy by leading the distillery well into the 20th century. Jameson Irish Whiskey is crafted from a mash of malted and unmalted barley that is triple-distilled — just as it was by John Jameson himself centuries ago — through three separate copper-pot stills: a wash still, feint still and finally a spirit still. The mash itself is made using barley, maize and pure Irish water, further adding to the unique character of the whiskey. Jameson 18 Year Old Limited Reserve Irish Whiskey is a special blend of three whiskies that have each aged at least 18 years in hand-selected American bourbon and European oak casks in Jameson's Midleton warehouse. As a result of its 18 year beauty rest, the whiskey's nose opens with spicy oak and toffee, which is followed by more toffee and fudge notes on the palate, as well as subtle hints of sherry. Just before being bottled, the whiskey is finished in first-fill bourbon casks, which leads to a smooth, vanilla finish, brightened by previous notes of toffee and caramel. Each bottle of Jameson 18 Year Old Limited Reserve Irish Whiskey is numbered, reflecting the limited quantity that is hand-selected and bottled each year. Jameson 18 Year Old Limited Reserve Irish Whiskey earned a score of 95 points from Wine Enthusiast, which described it as "beautiful."
