This is what happens when beer and whiskey collide. Allow us to introduce to you Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition.
You may already know about Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition. You may have even tried it. (If you haven't, get to it.) This edition boasted subtle notes of cocoa and a touch of hops. Using stout casks to age Jameson added another layer of complexity to this much beloved, smooth whiskey. Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition was a foray into combining everything beer lovers love with everything whiskey lovers love. And now, with the rich, sweet success of the Stout Edition providing momentum, Jameson is doing it again. This time, with the most popular beer style this side of the Atlantic: IPA.
Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition is finished in IPA barrels sourced from a local craft brewery near Jameson's Dublin distillery. The Irish whiskey shows aromas of hops, grapefruit and wood. On the palate, hops, citrus and spice lead to a fresh, smooth finish characterized by barley and fruit. It's a surprisingly refreshing combination of whiskey and beer that gets even better when paired with an IPA. Here's the trick: Pour a half pint of your favorite hoppy IPA. Pour two ounces of Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition in a rocks glass. Alternate between sips of beer and whiskey. The pairing allows you to fully experience the flavors of the IPA as they present themselves in this Irish whiskey. We suggest pouring an IPA with citrus flavors for the ultimate experience.
