JAMESON “THE BLENDER’S DOG” IRISH WHISKEY
Description from Jameson. . .
The Whiskey Makers Series.
The secret behind our whiskey lies in the passion and dedication of our masterful craftsmen, our Head Distiller, Head Cooper and Head Blender. The Whiskey Makers Series celebrates them and their craft.
We’re not sure if our Head Blender, Billy Leighton, has a musical note in his head but harmony is his main pursuit. The Blender’s Dog is a whiskey that celebrates his craft the art of marrying whiskeys. A superbly balanced, complex whiskey, The Blender’s Dog is a perfect balance of spirit, wood, and time; delivering butterscotch sweetness with a prickle of spice and tannins. Making whiskey requires a fair deal of science, but blending is an art.
‘I wanted to create harmony and complexity, an infusion of flavour that perfectly fills your mouth and nose. My whiskey has a rich creamy mouth feel, with the sweetness of butterscotch, giving way to the prickle of spices and tannins’. – Billy Leighton, Head Blender.
From light citrus to pineapple, mango and kiwi notes, with the addition of figs and dates. A touch of walnut leads into the contribution of the seasoned American barrels and Spanish butts, vanilla and toasted oak.
A rich, round, creamy mouthfeel, with the sweetness of butterscotch, giving way to the prickle of the pot still spices. Succulent fruit brings the perfect balance as charred oak with some subtle tannin add to the complexity.
Exceptionally long, as the luscious fruit is slow to fade.
