This was day four of my advent calendar. This one surprised me. I tend to like strong, bold island whiskies, and I find Speysides to be be fine but bland. This one had a strong smell of apples, but wasn’t sweet, and VERY smooth. This is probably the best Speyside I’ve ever had.
Jameson is a classic, it defines the genre for Irish whiskey. I like it quite a lot. I still prefer really smokey whiskies, and this isn’t, but it’s still very smooth and flavorful. I’d absolutely pick it many times.
This came highly recommended by the guy at my local store because it has a super high quality taste for a relatively low price. $18, and it’s REALLY good.
