jamesI have often posted about my love of bourbon here on Lost Cowboy – I love the stuff.  However, while on my swing through Italy last fall, bourbon was no where to be found.  I was going to go without any alcohol on the trip, but my niece, with whom I was traveling, suggested I try Jameson Irish Whiskey, which was readily available.  I tried it, and I liked it.

I liked it so much that it led to some funny stories for my niece to tell at family gathering – but that is a story for another time.

Anyway, I made a note of Jameson Irish Whiskey and vowed to keep it in mind once I returned home to the land of readily available bourbon (I now have 19 varieties of bourbon on hand in my liquor cabinet).  I was thinking the other day that Jameson Irish Whiskey would be the prefect treat to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

About Jameson Irish Whiskey : “Jameson Irish Whiskey is distilled three times to deliver exceptional smoothness.  Triple distillation is what makes us unique to American Whiskeys, which are typically only distilled once, and Scotch whiskies, which are usually distilled twice.  This tradition began in 1780 with the Great Master Distiller John Jameson, who worked out that three distillations was best for his Jameson Irish Whiskey.”

I bought a few bottles of Jameson to give as gifts as well. 

One last thing, if you run into my niece and she tries to tell you about the time I drank whiskey out of a Diet Coke bottle on a train from Florence to Assisi… well, I plead no comment.
