Jameson Select Reserve Irish Whiskey
Jameson Select Reserve is the newest member of the Jameson family. Like Jameson, Select Reserve is a triple distilled blend of rich pot still and grain whiskeys. Like Jameson, it’s also matured in a mixture of sherry casks and American oak barrels. But the bourbon barrels used in Select Reserve are toasted and charred to Jameson's Master Cooper, Ger Buckley’s exact specifications in Kentucky. It’s a painstaking process, but well worth it. First, the freshly emptied bourbon barrels are selected and graded, before being prepared for further charring. The inside of each cask is then charred precisely according to Ger’s instructions before one final inspection confirms the deeper level of char demanded by Select Reserve. The grain whiskey though is a special ‘Small Batch’ grain whiskey that Dave Quinn, Jameson's Master of Whiskey Science, only ever distils just once a year. Creating the final blend, Jameson's Master Blender, Billy Leighton who carefully handpicks each cask, not based on age but the flavours they contribute, always ensuring the same signature taste profile. All under the watchful eye of Brian Nation, Jameson's Master Distiller who oversees the whole process. To ensure we deliver the classic Jameson smooth taste, but with enhanced flavours, more intense concentrated spice, nutty notes, vanilla sweetness and sherry fruit, Select Reserve provides a rich smooth taste experience.
