Default Jameson Orange

I've done reviews on a few other new products from them here in the past (Caskmates, Black Barrel, and Coffee Brew, I think) but hesitated lately because Jameson has branched off into hard seltzers and who knows what else.

I've been curious about the latest product, Jameson Orange. So I asked a very knowledgeable Party Source employee if she'd tried it. My nickname for her is "Whiskey Lady", because part of her job is to taste new stuff before the store commits to an order. (Sounds like a decent gig, right?)

In short, she told me that Jameson Orange wasn't a stand alone sipping beverage, it would be okay in a cocktail, maybe. So, unless they come out with a 200ml or smaller bottle, I'll take her word for it.


Anybody here tried it yourself? I'm listening.

By itself it wasn't good. Good Kyle mixed it with something and made a creamsicle type of thing. It was good.

Had no interest in that sort of experimenting until COVID shut bars down here in 2020. My latest is...you know what, maybe that's better discussed in another thread. Let me see if there's a cocktail discussion here already.

I'm not a big whiskey mixed drink drinker (a mixed drink to me is a splash of water in my whiskey ) unless I'm on vacation or at a steak house, so I'm going to pass on the Orange. Unless, like you said, I could get a small bottle to sample.

I love a good whiskey sour. Made with individual ingredients. The whiskey doesn't matter much.

Personally, I enjoy a good Irish whiskey...Jameson isn't One of them. In fact, there are many that are far superior and the less expensive. I do have a friend however who has dabbled in the different "finishes" for Jameson, and at his house for cigars, he won't ask me what I'd like to drink, he just pours it, especially when he's trying to get me to sample something he knows I probably won't like. Thankfully they are usually small pours. I cannot say I enjoy any of the other jamesons. When somebody says an Irish whiskey is blended to be used in a mixed drink, all I can do is roll my eyes.

There was one Irish that was finished in a Sherry cask, and I found that very enjoyable. I think it was Kilbrin? But don't quote me on that.

Anyway, my unwillingness to enjoy sour beers, fruity beers, and flavored whiskeys probably comes from my being an old, cantankerous, curmudgeon.

Peace of the Lord be with you.

When 2020 closures forced me to stay home for a few weeks, I picked up some Tullamore Dew.. Drank that straight.

But when things got back to near normal, finding a place that both allowed cigars AND had better Irish than Jameson was a challenge. Still is. And for me, staying home feels like involuntary confinement.

Tullamore Dew is better than Jameson.

Some that Irish(s) I have sampled in the last couple years and found good. (price I paid for it)

Kilbrin *** ($20)
Red Breast 12 ** (for the price, thought it would be better than it was - won't buy again at $53)
Tullamore Dew *** ($20)
Tullamore Dew (rum cask finish) *** ($27)
Teeling Small Batch *** ($28)
Teeling Single Grain **** ($39)
Kavanagh Toasted French Oak Finish **** ($30)
Knappogue Castle **** ($25)
Knockmore **** ($23)
Knappogue Castle Single Malt 12 Yr ****+ ($34)
Quiet Man **** ($34) [one of my favorite movies, had to have the whiskey - will have it again]
Paddy's ***+ ($20)

There have been a couple more, but that is enough to start. I love to walk into a place with a great selection and just browse. If it is in glass, has a cork, and is under $40 - I look at it and cogitate...if it is under $30, I will probably pull the trigger. AND, I am a sucker for a bottle that comes in it's own "tabernacle", especially if it is tube shaped (and I have yet to be disappointed).

Peace of the Lord be with you.

COVID did in one of the best features at Party Source here in Cincytucky. They had a "tasting library", where you could try a sample of something you were considering buying a bottle of. Typically, they had partial bottles of anything the staff had been testing out. Especially if it was new to their shelves.

That spoiled me, admittedly. It also got me to go ahead with confidence and make purchases. Don't understand why they haven't gone back to doing it. Staffers there have given me different answers.
