Found 29th Jul 2016
Just saw it in asda for £30
It is £40 on the whiskey exchange and get 5 stars out of 25 reviews
Crested Ten has previously been one of the harder to find expressions of Jameson, however in 2016 the branding was given a makeover and it now looks like it will be one of the line's more important bottlings. It is interesting to note that the 'ten' has been removed from the labelling and replaced with an 'X'. It was a common misconception that this whiskey was indeed a ten year old, but that was not the case and the new livery helps clear up any confusion!
We think this is a far better example than the standard Jameson, it has just a bit more flavour and complexity, meaning it is a little easier to drink straight up without a mixer or ice! The blend composition is very similar to the regular Jameson but has a little more ageing. Some extra use of sherry casks also adds some nice weight and spicy fruitiness.

And, according to the reviews on Amazon, this has destroyed it's previous good ratings.

It has 10 people on Amazon give it 5 stars and 1 give it 1 star
so how you can say it has been destroyed is quiet amusing
It was rebranded to remove the ten from the label as they thought it was misleading as it never used 10 year old whiskey

If you read the detail it would seem the good ratings are for the non-Amazon suppliers with old stock.

Below is a copy and paste from the whiskey exchange , who are one of the biggest direct to customers suppliers in the UK . It is rebranding of the product not an altered product . Funny how the professionals must of got it wrong
Seems a bit pricey for a 7 year blended whiskey, probably because its hard to get out of Ireland so the price gets inflated, TWE charging £40 is silly as its £28 in sainsbury's standard price
