Followed by notes of chocolate dipped honeycomb, orange zest, mango, cinnamon, nutmeg and white pepper on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Kevin O’Gorman, Master Distiller at Jameson, said: “Excited by a 2001 trial with Caribbean rum casks, through innovation, careful craft and over two decades of maturation, we worked to marry two traditional spirits together – Irish whiskey and rum – and in doing so, found the sweet spot where the rhythm of the Caribbean meets the beat of the Irish drum. We can’t wait for whiskey enthusiasts to experience Jameson Remixed Caribbean Beats.”
Limited to 2,900 bottles, Jameson Remixed Caribbean Beats, is now available exclusively from the Jameson website, for a RRP of €280.00 – 50cl.
