Jameson Irish Whiskey now offers Jameson Caskmates. For the first time, local Irish micro-brewery Franciscan Well and Jameson Original shared casks to create one whiskey. Caskmates was created by Dave Quinn, master of whiskey science at Jameson Distillery, and Shane Long, head brewer at local Irish micro-brewery Franciscan Well. For the new whiskey, Jameson shared its proprietary oak whiskey barrels from the Midleton Distillery with Franciscan Well, which created an Irish stout aged in Jameson barrels. The stout-seasoned barrels were then sent back to the distillery to be refilled with Jameson Original. As a result of its time spent in the stout-seasoned barrels, Jameson Caskmates has the triple-distilled smoothness of Jameson, but with new added notes of coffee, cocoa, and hops, the company says. Jameson Caskmates is available in 750-ml bottles for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
