Jameson Bow Street 18 Years is a special blend of rare pot still and grain Irish whiskeys produced at the Middleton distillery. After ageing for almost two decades, these whiskeys are married together and spend their final finishing period in their original home, at the Jameson Distillery Bow Street in Dublin. Launched in 2018, this whiskey is the rarest release and is bottled once per year, at cask strength.
It is created using three distillates and is aged in both sherry and bourbon barrels before being sent to Bow St in Dublin for a final finishing of at least 6 months in fresh Bourbon barrels. This comes in a very impressive laser etched oak box.
Nose A real full bodied aroma. Initially sweet with ripe fruit notes of melon, bananas and dark fleshy plums. The unmistakable pot still spicy character combines to give hints of treacle, cinnamon and liquorice.
Palate Mellow sweetness and toasted wood are complemented by fruit richness, characteristic of the port casks. A touch of creamy dairy fudge and dark chocolate add to the complexity.
Finish A tantalisingly long finish which covers the spectrum from the sweetness of fruit, through the spices, to the unmistakable note of the barley where it all began.
