The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)

Occasions, tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel. 

SJ's Rating- Top Shelf 
A great twist on the regular Jameson. Has an amazing taste especially good if you like bourbon since it is matured in American ex-bourbon barrels. 
Occasion- Friday with friends
SJ's Pro tip- Refreshing change from regular scotch
Alternates- Jameson Caskmates, just as refreshing with a hint of beer
Cocktails- Old Fashioned
Food Pairing- Boiled fish & rice
Feel(After Drinking)- Delighted 😇

The second segment(Technical details that are mostly available on a google search)

Reads product label " Double charring the wood fires up the barrels and gives them new life. Untold richness and complexity awaits in every drop of Jameson Black Barrel.It is perfect on its own or on the rocks but it's also commonly known as the best whiskey for an Old Fashioned".
I agree with most of the product story, I have not tried an Old Fashioned with an Irish whiskey though! The base ingredient for an old fashioned is bourbon.  The interesting thing is that the barrels used for aging this Irish whiskey is ex-bourbon barrels which makes sense. 
I will try an old-fashioned with this Jameson and will post in my future blogs! For now enjoy my tasting notes!
