It is triple-distilled and is actually a blend comprised of pure (or single) pot still whiskey and a grain whiskey made from unmalted barley and other grains. The pure pot still component of the blend is also bottled alone and sold as Redbreast. Jameson is considered to be the world’s best-selling Irish whiskey.The attack is expectedly dry, but a few seconds on the tongue reveals cereally sweetness, citrus peel, and tropical fruits like banana and kiwi.
