Very good, but highly acidic. Bring your Tums. I have a stomach disease, one Rare Barrel can ruin me for a whole day...

There's a small place by me that was just a storehouse for their barrels for the past two years. They opened a taproom this year and they only brew BA sours. Pretty solid stuff but not quite on par with Rare Barrel or de garde yet. Lots of potential though.

I really used to enjoy rare barrel but all their stuff seems a bit one-note now. I can't always enjoy an enamel-melting sour and that's primarily what they churn out. I had to take a break from their stuff.

Jameson Caskmates is undeniably triple distilled Jameson Original and retains all of the famous Jameson smoothness one expects. However, the unique twist in the finish tells you undoubtedly that it has been rubbing shoulders with a fabulous Irish stout.

We all know how a drink down at the local can leed to many an adventure as it has over hundreds of years. Its good to know it’s a tradition that continues today. Plans hatched over a drink (or two) can of course lead to misadventure and shenanigans but, it must be said, a shared drink can lead to great collaborations too.

That's what happened when Jameson Master Distiller, Brian Nation shared a beverage or two with Cork Brewery Franciscan Wells‘ Master Brewer. Between themselves an idea led to an experiment. And as the two Masters collaborated, thatched what turned out to be a Master plan.

Soon, a batch of empty Jameson’s casks were dispatched to County Cork where for a time Franciscan Wells’ used them as receptacles in which to age their craft Irish stout. With fine results.

Eventually, job done the casks returned home. This created unique opportunity. Jameson Master Distiller had what many would call a ‘lightbulb’ moment. Why not age a batch of Jameson’s in these now stout-seasoned casks?


The result is a limited experimental expression - Jameson Caskmates.

Why not experience Caskmates for yourself?

The aroma opens with freshly mown Irish meadow grass, crisp green orchard apples and pears, brightened with a twist of lime. Pot still spices warm, deepening it. It slowly changes from Green Tea, to creamy hazelnut and milk chocolate. The hops lingers, and mingles with the toasted oak, and barley grain.

Initially sweet and mouth coating, the taste up from it Irish Pot Still Whiskey, then the Stout walks in confidently bringing hots, cocoa beans, charred oak and marzipan.


personally, irish stouts always seem to be dry and flavorless. seems like they are trying really hard to sell someone on the idea.

So I guess one of the dude's from New England Brewing Company left and opened a new place called Counter Weight. They put out their first beer in cans this week, called Headway. Stuff is REALLY fantastic for their first offering. Great blend of NE IPA and a traditional IPA. I have a feeling it may be name that will get thrown around a lot soon.
