Looking for some advice. Want to buy a good bottle of Jameson for my Dad as a wedding gift from myself and hubby to be.
I want it to be a bit special or hard get. Can someone give me some advice here. I'm looking and 4 different bottles at the moment but don't know what the difference between them is.
Jameson 18 yr old Master Selection, Jameson Gold, Jameson Limited Edition, Jameson Distillery Reserve 12 yr old.
Whats the oldest Jameson that can be got.
Thanks in advance G.............
Personally, if it were a gift to me, out of those 4 that is the one I would be most thankful for (and I love Irish whiskey). It just seems the most special.
It really depends on how much you are willing to spend. If you want something special, but it has to be Jameson:
Jamesons 15 year old. Pure pot still (2000). This might cost you over £100 though. Also it is very powerfully flavoured and if your dad prefers the blend he may find it overpowering.
If you want any Irish, that is very very good. A lot Irish whiskey fans are raving about Redbreast 15yo:

For what it's worth I rate this as one of the best whiskies (top 5) I have tasted in my life (from any country).
Got a few hundred to spare ?
Knappogue Castle 1951
Did I forget to mention that it is one of the finest Irish whiskeys I have tasted and I'm a huge Jameson fan so thats saying alot.

Jameson 15 pps is available in Germany because the owner of Irisch Lifestyle found some at the storage of another whisky dealer. The latter could not sell the reamining bottles and sold them on to Irisch Lifestyle.
So the already extinct Jameson resurfaced and is for sale in a limited quantity.
You won't find many for sale in Ireland - there's one in the Celtic Whiskey Shop on Dawson Street in Dublin.
I'd go for the Jameson 15 if I were you. There are some German online shops that have it. I'll find them. You can also get some at http://www.whisky.fr
