Following on the initial success of the inaugural Japanese exclusive Caskmates bottling comes this 2018 exclusive Japan only limited edition expression. Each year, Jameson teams up with a local artist to produce a wonderful “Japanified” label to adorn the classic Jameson recipe enjoyed by millions around the globe. Our artist in question is Yu Suda of Tama, Tokyo. Suda explores his Japanese history, culture and identity through his expressive and entertaining depictions and has worked for numerous clients including NIKE and Japan Airlines. The image in question appears to showcase the training of a Bushi or Samurai, who is identified with his ichimonji gasa or flat hat, carrying what we can only assume is a cask of delicious Irish Whiskey.
