Jameson's Irish Whiskey

I bought this 12 Year Old Blended whiskey on Monday.

I sampled it on Monday evening and again on Tuesday.
Both times I had it with a splash of water, then with 1 ice cube and then straight up.

The color was a very nice dark gold, edging into a light amber, as opposed to the pale gold of the Bushmill's Black. Probably the result of the extra aging.

To the nose and on first taste, I found this whiskey to be very layered and complex, almost bourbon like.
It was a warm, brown sugar/caramel/vanilla aroma and taste, with notes of cinammon.

The finish revealed it's true Irish whiskey character, the malt (grain) and wood notes shining through.

As much as I like the Bushmill's, this blended whiskey will also have a place in my cabinet.
