Thursday, March 12th 2020
Charlie’s Restaurant at Historic Water Street Inn
6 P.M. SOCIAL HOUR:
Butler Passed Hors D’oeuvres
Mini Potato Pancakes with Lingonberry Jam
Mini Pressed Reuben Bites
Beef Carpaccio on Toast Points with Onion & Balsamic
Jameson Caskmates IPA
Floral, herbal hops, & grapefruit citrus notes with subtle orchard fruits are complemented by wood shavings and a little nuttiness. A delicate spicy tone comes through and the lingering fresh fruit & hops give way to grains of barley & a signature smooth finish.
7 P.M. START WITH:
Prosciutto Wrapped Rabbit
with Onion Boxty, Onion Jam & Micro Greens
Jameson Caskmates Stout
An initial aroma of freshly cut hay is complemented by a crisp orchard fruit character – green apples and pears, with a twist of lime zest. Mild pot still spices appear, deepening from green tea to hazelnut and milk chocolate. The initial sweet mouth coating typical of the Irish pot still inclusion is quickly complemented by the subtle touch of hops and cocoa beans from the beer cask finish.
Israeli Cous Cous, Asaparagus Spears, Fresh Herbs, Parmesan Cheese & a Balsamic Glace
Jameson Black Barrel
Time spent maturing in these barrels leads to intensified aromas of butterscotch, fudge and creamy toffee. Nutty notes are in abundance alongside the smooth sweetness of spice and vanilla with a toasted wood finish.
Braised Bison Short Rib
With Colcannon Potatoes, Honey Love Carrots & Pan Jus
Jameson Coopers Croze
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. With a pleasantly long finish, vanilla sweetness slowly fades to barley grains with a touch of oak char.
Chocolate Whiskey Cake
With Stout Caramel Sauce & Hand-Whipped Cream
Jameson Cold Brew
Intense, rich coffee bean aromatics combined with the vanilla nuttiness of Jameson give way to a distinctive, bold & natural flavor with a refreshing cold brew impact. Following a charred wood contribution from the pot still whiskey on the palate, this innovative Irish Whiskey finishes full-bodied & smooth.
$74.95 per person (plus tax & Gratuity) ~ includes 2 Hand-Rolled Cigars
