Jameson Cooper’s Croze Wins Taste Master Award At Irish Whiskey Masters 2020

Jameson Cooper's Croze Irish Whiskey Masters 2020

Jameson Cooper’s Croze was awarded the Taste Master award at the Irish Whiskey Masters 2020. The winner of the competition’s highest prize was praised for its flavors of “vanilla pods” and “orchard fruits.” It was a big night for Ireland’s best-selling Whiskey brand which also saw their Jameson Blender’s Dog take home a Master award.

Master awards are the competition’s highest honor outside of the top slot, and other Irish Whiskeys that took home those prizes include Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy, Red Spot, Midleton Very Rare 2019, Grace O’Malley Rum Cask, and Teeling Small Batch.
