Jameson Cooper's Croze 70cl 46%
‘As a fifth generation cooper I’ve created the Croze to
celebrate my love for wood and its enormous versatility.
My whiskey reflects the spectrum of flavours contributed
by the variety of cask types, from sweet vanilla to rich
fruits and toasted wood’’
Ger Buckley, Head Cooper
A whiskey that celebrates the richness and beauty of
wood, curated by Head Cooper Ger Buckley.
The Cooper’s Croze is a whiskey created by our
Head Cooper, Ger Buckley, showcasing the diversity
of barrels at our Midleton distillery and the profound
influence that wood yields.
The Cooper’s Croze is a carefully crafted whiskey
that effortlessly carries vanilla sweetness, rich fruit
flavours, floral and spice notes, and the undeniable
influence of oak. You can take the whiskey out of
wood but you can never take the wood out of whiskey.
A subtle flower petal-perfume develops into rich ripe
fruits, while some charred oak and cedar wood bring
balance and complexity – a seamless infusion of
American and Spanish oak character.
The initial impression is from the sweet vanilla of
the American ex-bourbon barrels. This brings added
depth to the rich fruits typical of the ex-oloroso
sherry butts. A pleasant touch of hazelnut and
toasted wood complement the pot still spices.
Pleasantly long, with vanilla sweetness slowly fading
to barley grains with a touch of oak char.
