Blender's Dog, the second of three limited-edition Irish whiskeys from Jameson's "Whiskey Makers Series," has finally made its way to the United States.
Named for the instrument Jameson Head Blender Billy Leighton uses to collect samples from whiskey casks, Blender's Dog boasts a 43% ABV and a delicate butterscotch sweetness that gives way to a long, fruity finish.
More tasting notes were detailed in Jameson's announcement of their latest triple-distilled Emerald Isle whiskey this week:
NoseFrom light citrus to pineapple, mango and kiwi notes, with the addition of figs and dates. A touch of walnut leads into the contribution of the seasoned American barrels and Spanish butts, vanilla and toasted oak.
Taste A rich, round, creamy mouthfeel, with the sweetness of butterscotch, giving way to the prickle of the pot still spices. Succulent fruit brings the perfect balance as charred oak with some subtle tannin add to the complexity.
Finish Exceptionally long, as the luscious fruit is slow to fade
Sounds pretty good, right? Look for a bottle of Blender's Dog for $70 at your local liquor store in the near future.
