Stout barrels now !?
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.
I work for a distributor that launched this in Indiana, it was the most successful launch in 6 years.

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.

Good to know passed on cans the other day.

Wellshire's Wicked Ale from Goose Island after 18 at Wellshire GC. Heady buzz. Tasty after 18 holes in the middle of our 'summer in March' run here in Denver...
