Jameson Original Irish Whiskey. Image courtesy Irish Distillers. The nose on the flagship of the Jameson’s line has a light, aromatic nose with hints of citrus, allspice, fresh grass, and a hint of honey. The taste has a good balance between sweet and spice, with dried fruits and caramel balanced by black pepper with touches of honey and butterscotch underneath, as well as a slight flintiness. The pepperiness lingers through the finish, along with vanilla, honey, straw, and dried flowers. (Updated March, 2014)
