Great value for the money. Smooth, just enough char, and a very distinct aftertaste.

Objectively, I say: very good whisky. Quite smooth, tastes great. Character and quality. But, ten dollars more than Blackbush. Equal to Blackbush, but couldnвЂt hold a candle to Bushmills 10 year (about same price).

Smooth no harsh after taste. ItвЂs a great drink. I definitely recommend to anyone.

Whiskey is just decent. I have been drinking Jameson for a long time. Finish on this whiskey is very bitter – not good.

In Ireland, home of it, its 50 euros. At maybe 40 it would be worth the bottle. Its nice вЂ“ cream and peach on the taste, medium finish but there is an opening of spice, nutmeg and clove. 3 pinches of water bring out a bite and spice maybe cinnamon and plum. Vanilla ice cream finish. Nice, complex but at its current price I’d pass.

Having a very good collection of Scots Whisky this is my first experience of Irish Whiskey direct from the distillery in Dublin, the triple distillation creates an absolutely beautiful full bodied well rounded smooth whiskey with no harsh after taste, the warmth of the liquid flows smoothly over your tongue with the slight spice and dark barrel undertones lingering…. one of my top 3, not bad for my first glass!

Really smooth, great flavor. As a long time Bourbon lover, this is a really nice alternative. Recommend.

Outstanding whiskey. Much smoother than regular JamesonвЂs. Great whiskey for celebratory event or just sipping to relax!

Wonderful stuff. Lots of toffee and brioche flavours with some dark fruits (think dates and raisins) and just the right amount of oak and spice. The Single Pot Still character is the star of this show. IвЂd rate this 88 or 89 out of 100. Terrific value for the money.

I received a bottle as a gift. IвЂm a long time Jameson drinker but this is awful вЂ” undrinkable. Is it possible that it is just a bad bottle?

As a rule I don’t rate 5 out of 5, but I want to. This is hands down the most drinkable whisky I’ve come across. It’s almost dangerous how easy it goes down…very much a cereal caramel vanilla taste and I love it

As Jameson’s is my go to, never leave home without it whiskey, I expected only good things from Black Barrel. Think of it as Jameson’s with a bonus. A deep, sweet, spice that isn’t sugary but comforting. If you are an Irish drinker that enjoys an occasional bourbon, this is a sure thing.

So smooth. A fine sipping whiskey with delicious flavors that linger long after each taste. Love this.

I bought it as a gift and I’m told it’s fantastic.

Jameson’s have here a smooth cross between Irish pot still and US Bourbon, but too smooth and sweet for this Islay fan. Great value when on special for $60 AU.

My husband is a Jamiesons drinker, and has had many of the ‘specials’, and he is delighted with Black Barrel, it has a strong but smooth taste, and I like it too; and I’m not a whiskey drinker.

For the price, you can’t beat it. It has great flavor while maintaining its smoothness. It has sweet high and undertones that leaves a delight aftertaste as well.

This is such a smooth drinkable whiskey. I highly recommend.
Dangerously good and very smooth. This bottle isn’t going to last long!
This is a fine whiskey. Smells like apples and tastes like chocolate. Who doesn’t like chocolate? This is a no brainer.
A great easy drinking whiskey from the Jameson stable. Chocolate, marzipan and spices are all on the palate. Great value for money.

Smooth and easy drinking, my current вЂњhouseвЂќ whiskey

Its subtle notes of green apple and butterscotch are very noticeable.

Bold initially on the tongue but surprisingly mellow going down. An enjoyable alternative to regular Jameson.

Present from the missus and it. Is. Amazing.
Best enjoyed as a double measure with a half shot (12.5ml) of water. Then left to warm up to room temperature by resting the glass in the hand.
Smells incredible, slightly sweet, kinda smokey but nothing leaping out at you until it warms up and you start to get hints of marzipan and smoke.
A very slight hint of coffee is present in the aftertaste amongst that moreish combination of sweet, smoke and oak.
Stunning whisky that you could happily sip on all day, on special occasions or as a nightcap.
A wonderful present and certainly to be a permanent addition to the drinks cabinet

Great for newcomers as it shares the friendliness of original Jamesons. Even more so if you enjoy chocolates and coffee as the Stout influence is pretty pronounced. Probably not for peat enthusiasts, but just a super affordable daily sipper when you want to relax.

Nice and smooth with more depth of character than the beloved original. Enjoyed this over the IPA which was a much lighter experience. I will buy this again.

Of all the whiskey I have got to taste, this one is a step ahead of them all. Thanks Jameson for continuing this great drink.
4 September 2018
Excellent. Tried it without knowing anything about it after seeing it in store and loved it from the first sip. Now hooked. Easily my favourite of any type of whiskey bar (pun intended) none.
20 August 2018
Cocoa, coffee, butter and butterscotch. Damn fine.

Much better than original Jameson. Try it, you will not be disappointed. Tried IPA but this is better by far.

Smooth with more flavour than standard Jamie’s. only had a couple of nips on a promotional night but would severely recommend this drink.
