Jameson Gold started out as a limited edition expression that was originally created for the Asian market. It proved to be very popular and it was added as a permanent member of the Jameson range. The blend has been tweaked a little since it first appeared and now seems to be more rounded and harmonious than initial releases. The uniqueness of Jameson Gold comes from a proportion of ageing in new American oak barrels. New oak can be quite aggresive and tends to add a lots of flavour but also some tannin and woodiness the the whiskey, therefore it has to be used sparingly. The composition of Jameson Gold is quite complex with lots of different pot still and grain components all coming together in an elegant and smooth package.
