No St. Patrick’s Day would be complete without Jameson Irish Whiskey making an appearance. This year Las Vegas will be booming with tourists and locals alike for St. Patrick’s Day as it falls into a wild weekend of March Madness.

In addition to the familiar base Jameson, the portfolio also includes some innovations such as Jameson Caskmates. Emerging from a conversation between the head distiller and the head brewer of Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery, Jameson Caskmates has been finished in stout-seasoned whiskey casks. While the triple-distilled smoothness is very much intact, notes of cocoa, coffee and butterscotch confirm the stout influence. Caskmates is a head-turning, modern Irish whiskey.

Jameson Black Barrel, another fan favorite, is a triple-distilled blend of rich pot still and grain whiskey that is matured in a mixture of sherry casks and bourbon barrels.

For those that want to break out of their Jameson comfort zone, patrons can sample some of the other Irish whiskeys that fall under the Pernod Ricard portfolio. The company’s current Irish whiskey portfolio includes products from Jameson, Powers, Redbreast, Midleton, Green Spot and Paddy. Legally defined, Irish whiskey is a spirit distilled from cereal grains and aged three years in wooden casks, all on Irish soil.
