Jameson Blender's Dog Irish Whiskey. Jameson's Master Blender, Billy Leighton's contribution to The Whiskey Makers Series.
This whiskey is a tribute to work the work of Jameson's Master Blender, Billy Leighton. True to the traditional Jameson form, it is a blend of pot still and grain whiskeys aged in a variety of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks.
In order to represent the masterful blending effectively, there are said to be three different distillate styles used, which have been matured to 4 different ages. Providing a smooth, well-rounded and balanced whiskey.
The significance of 'The Blender's Dog' is that, a dog is a small cup used to draw samples from the cask.
'Big, powerful and smooth, with rounded sweet toasted oak and a long spicy finish', John Wilson, The Irish Times July 23rd 2016.
