About Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve Irish Whiskey
Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve Irish Whiskey is a truly exceptional blend of whiskeys — a combination of grain and port-pipe pot still whiskeys, it includes specimens which have been aged in port casks, as well as whiskeys which may exceed 20 years in age. As a result, this beautiful creation has an aroma of fruit, ripe berries and banana nut bread, which leads to a silky palate filled with flavors of toasted wood, port, rich fudge and tangerines. The finish, slightly sweet, has hints of vanilla, cake icing, maple syrup and nutmeg.
Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve won Double Gold at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and was twice named “Irish Whiskey of the Year” by

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.
About Irish Whiskey
Contrary to popular belief that Scots invented whisk(e)y, Irish whiskey was mentioned almost a century before its Scottish brother.
Its origin comes from the perfume distilling monks who decided to tweak the recipe a bit, creating Irish whiskey.
Irish whiskey doesn’t have a lot of rules and regulations to be considered “pure” and can be made with various grains and processes, as long as it is aged for at least three years in wooden casks and has a max ABV of 94.8%.
