Then, a couple of weeks ago, I received a tiny perfume bottle of the new super premium Jameson in the mail.
Jameson’s Rarest Vintage Reserve is evidently a blend of the oldest and rarest whiskeys the distillery has on hand. The flavor is more intense than regular Jameson’s – mainly because it’s bottled at a higher proof – 46 percent alcohol compared to the usual 40 percent. In fact, I had to add a couple of drops of water to a snifter of the stuff before I could a good whiff of the stuff.
The verdict? I can detect some complex spice aromas and flavors that I don’t get from regular Jameson’s if I really concentrate on it.
