Looking to satisfy the appetite of fans asking for a permanent expression of the awarded 18 Years Cask Strength, Jameson has just unveiled their first such concoction to be available globally.

The Bow Street 18-Years Cask Strength is named after the special location where it finishes its maturation–Bow Street, Dublin, where the popular blended whiskey was originally distilled from 1780 to 1975.

The new blend includes pot still and grain Irish whiskeys that have each spent 18 years in bourbon and sherry casks, and then have been married together and re-casked in first-fill ex-bourbon American oak barrels for a final of 6-12 months in the original Maturation House.

Official tasting notes include a nose of “rich wood-driven influence with deep toffee notes and spice,” “hints of leather and vanilla along with a subtle sherry nuttiness creating depth and complexity,” and a long and full finish “with the sweet toffee notes slowly fading while the toasted oak and spice linger throughout until the very end.” This batch is presented at 55.3% ABV and will be available from July 2018.
