Jameson have paid tribute to their craftsmen with the Whiskey Makers Series. Each of their whiskey makers have created their own whiskey highlighting their craft. Distiller Brian Nation showcases his mastery of the Irish pot still, capturing the unique personality of the distillates before they show too much influence from the casks. The Distiller’s Safe has a smooth mouth feel, and features the soft buttery sweetness and gentle fruit notes of grain whiskey. The name comes from the spirit safe, which allows a distiller to monitor and test the quality of the spirit in the still without having to open it.
A great whiskey is the sum of great parts. Glendalough’s original 13 Year Old had already won Best Irish Whiskey, but for this limited release it’s been matured again in extremely rare and highly prized Japanese mizunara oak casks, handmade especially for this precious malt by Japan’s oldest cooper. The result? Incredible velvety mizunara smoothness with robust vanilla, fudge, peach, cinnamon, even some coconut, and what’s been named the most sensuous chocolate finish in the history of Irish whiskey. “A superstar whiskey that gives us all a reason to live,” according to Jim Murray, and we couldn’t agree more. This is the first Irish whiskey matured in mizunara and one of only three whisk(e)ys outside of Japan.
Frenzied global demand has far outstripped supply for this extraordinary malt, but as always the Club’s here to make sure our Members don’t miss out. Join free now to get your hands on a bottle while stocks last.
