Charring is an age-old method for invigorating barrels to intensify the taste. Jameson Black Barrel is a tribute to Jameson’s coopers, who painstakingly give their bourbon barrels an additional charring to reveal their untold richness and complexity. Because every barrel contains secrets; the trick is coaxing them out.
Nose: Time spent maturing in these barrels leads to intensified aromas of butterscotch, fudge and creamy toffee.
Taste: Nutty notes are in abundance alongside the smooth sweetness of spice and vanilla.
Finish: Enjoy the richness and intensity of toasted wood and vanilla. It’s another level of smoothness.
