Jameson 12 Year Old Special Reserve

Jameson 12 Year Old Special Reserve is a fantastic entrée into this collection of four magnificent reserve whiskeys and remains true to the Jameson tradition of maturing fine whiskey in bourbon and sherry casks. Originally named ‘1780’, to honour the year John Jameson founded his distillery in Dublin’s Bow Street, this 12 Year Old Special Reserve abounds with rich pot still flavours.

Master of Whiskey Science, David Quinn describes it as… "Superbly matured by age, emphasising the flavours of toasted wood, spice and sherry. Every drop of this whiskey spends twelve years in wood, including bourbon and seasoned sherry casks, acquiring its own distinctive and complex taste."

The finished result is an assertive, complex whiskey of honey golden textures with a smooth rounded body. It is warm, welcoming and perfect for any social gathering.

Jameson 12 Year Old Special Reserve is the first of the newly designed Reserves range to be made available and reflects the superb craftsmanship and premium nature of this whiskey.
