Recently I was given a bottle of Jameson from our local Pernod Ricard Representative after I told him I had never tried it. He told me to take it home and let him know what I thought. At first I must be honest I wasn’t expecting much. Jameson is a reasonably priced whisky and I was expecting an equally mediocre taste. I am pleased to say that I was pleasantly surprised.
Take a step back to 1989, over 20 years ago, before the fall of the Berlin Wall that changed the world forever. An old distillery located just outside Pizen, which had been producing high quality pot-still spirits for many years. Now the Czechoslovakian elite decided that they should produce a single malt whisky of ‘unparalleled quality.
