TransparentSmoke: What a surprise for St. Patrick’s day this little bottle was a wonderful change from traditional Jameson. It is still simple and easy like you expect but had more to discover on the nose and palate. By the time I added an ice cube to see what would happen, it magically disappeared with ease. Cool story here in looking this up, Jameson sent its used American Bourbon whiskey casks over to the Franciscan Well brewery, where they were used to aged some IPA beer. After that, the casks made their way back to the distillery, were they were used to make Caskmates IPA.

Our Score: 86/100
