JAMESON Pure pot still "Millenium" 15 years old 40%

Light strawberry sweetness and soft honey. Polished, almost cuddly oak offers a pinch of woodsmoke.

Vibrant yet gentle pot still character, aided by sweet sherry and soft almost apologetic oak. The latter produces some modest but appetising spices.

Medium length. Fruit and sharp spices interweaved.

A limited edition produced for the Millenium shift. I guess they chose to call it Jameson instead of Redbreast for marketing reasons. Not bad at all but somehow comes across as flat compared to the Redbreasts. A little more dynamics wouldn´t have gone amiss. My third bottle of this and most definitely the last I will get for a humane sum. For the price it commands today, I can only recommend it to pot still and Jameson completists. Bottle number: 07040

Rating: 8/10


  1. It's getting a bit expensive, but there are still bargains to be found:

  2. I was given a bottle of this back in 2002. My bottle is #15440. What is it worth? I'm not a big Irish Whiskey buff.

  3. I just found this bottle in my bar. I forgot I got it from my friends like 10 years ago. What would be the price today?
