Tasting notes taken from: Jamesonwhiskey.com. For more information click the link.
The initial aroma of freshly mown Hay is complimented by a crisp Orchard Fruit character, Green Apples and Pears along with a twist of Lime Zest. Mild Pot Still Spices appear, deepening from Green Tea to Hazel Nut and Milk Chocolate. The lingering Hop influence combines effortlessly with Toasted Oak and Barley Grains to form a solid base.
As expected, there is the initial sweet mouth coating typical of the Irish Pot Still Whiskey inclusion. Then the effect of the Beer Cask finish becomes apparent with the subtle touch of Hops and Cocoa Beans. Some Marzipan and Charred Oak add to the complexity.
Long and sweet with Milk Chocolate and Butterscotch
“Early Whiskey. Distilled from 2-row brewers barley grown right here in the Rogue Valley, Oregon. It was mashed, fermented and distilled all in-house. This first release is 100% from our local barley, aged for just about 2 months on Oregon oak, and tempered to 89 proof for your enjoyment. Its fresh, and wild and young – its EARLY, but its also smooth, and packed full of carmels and full flavors from our mashing techniques. This release has been many years in the planning, and we are very pleased to finally have it ready. Theres lots more resting in Oregon Oak for some, not-quite-so-early releases down the road. It will eventually mature into our single barrel releases as well, but for now, whiskey-lovers, here it is! Our first whiskey, proud to be entirely hand-made, with all local ingredients.” For more information on this product and other Immortal Spirits & Distilling Company click here: Immortalspirits.com.
Ardbeg Perpetuum Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
“The color is moderate straw/light gold, hinting at youth. The nose cuts a familiar Ardbeg profile — sweetly smoky, like barbecue smoke, with a salty backbone. Don’t make any judgments yet, though. The body is something else entirely. Brine and seaweed hit the palate first, with less smoke than you’d think. Then comes a rich sweetness — honey, apricot jam, vanilla sugar, and some dark molasses on the back end. The finish has a sulfury edge to it, showcasing charred wood and dark chocolate, completing the tour of duty that takes this whisky from salt to sweet to bitter, all in one quick gulp.” This tasting review was provided by Drinkhacker.com
